Successful candidates for the Fire Science Academy Track will be determined through a selection process. In order to be eligible for the selection process candidates MUST attend one of the informational sessions.

Due to the challenges of online Zoom orientations, we extended the orientation period by two weeks. Therefore, we will hold Zoom orientations on June 3 and June 10 at 6:00 PM.


We hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe during these trying times. To help facilitate that objective and follow the social distancing guidelines, we have temporarily stopped conducting face-to-face orientation meetings at the college, we now hold virtual Zoom meetings.  

To participate in an orientation meeting, you must first send us your email address to
