The 2021 Atascocita Fire Department Firefighter Academy is expected to begin January 7, 2021, with a special orientation for the recruits.  The orientation will detail what is expected of the recruits for the duration of the Firefighter Academy.  Recruits will also be given the necessary uniforms and materials to complete the online portion of the training.  The class will last through July 31, 2021.  

 

Classes will take place every Monday and Thursday evening from 6:30 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.  Skills days will take place on Saturdays and will begin at 8:00 a.m.  This is a hybrid class.  You will receive a course syllabus during orientation that will outline what assignments need to be completed along with due dates and test dates.  The syllabus will also outline what skills will be covered on skills days and where you will need to report for skills training. 

 

Once you have graduated from the Firefighter Academy, you will be required to ride a minimum of two, twelve-hour shifts per month and you will also be required to complete ten training hours each month in order to be a Member in Good Standing with the Atascocita Fire Department.  You will also be required to volunteer with the Atascocita Fire Department for no less than one year after graduation.

 

The cost of the Firefighter Academy will be $1,200.00.  This amount is due by June 1, 2021.  You may either pay the entire amount in full prior to the start of the Firefighter Academy or you may execute an Installment Payment Contract. Installment payments will be due on the first day of the month, but no later than the 5th day of each month.  If the 5th falls on a weekend, the payment will be due by the Monday immediately following the 5th day of the month by 3:30 p.m.

 

There is an opportunity to be reimbursed for the entire cost of the class after graduation and under the following guidelines:

  1. Complete the course, pass the TCFP certification test, continue serving with Atascocita FD as a member in good standing for 6 months after graduation = $600 reimbursement.
