Why the Rural Firefighting Academy?

The Rural Firefighting Academy – eLearning programs geared to today’s rural firefighter.

Rural-firefighting-specific learning focus. Self-paced education by leading fire service Instructors. It’s the RFA student advantage.

Affordable. Cost-effective training and education are more important than ever considering today’s challenging economic environment and the need to retain rural volunteers. 

Flexible. The Academy’s eLearning Platform provides the flexibility to attend class when it’s most convenient for the student, with a six-month time-frame from course registration to completion.

Rural-specific. RFA courses provide a highly valuable learning experience using comprehensive training materials designed to improve rural firefighter safety and performance. 

Self-paced. Each student has an optimal learning speed. With RFA’s eLearning Platform, the student sets the pace throughout the entire course. For example, if a student finds a course module too complex, he or she can review the presentation multiple times, and contact the instructor to ask questions. Our goal is for the student to learn the material and be ready to place it into practice.

Up-to-date. Each course is developed by an industry expert and covers the latest information and best practices in rural firefighting.
