  • Volunteer Incentive Program

    The Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP) is an intensive 6-day educational opportunity designed specifically for volunteer and combination department emergency services personnel.

    Each student receives a stipend to cover the cost of round-trip coach airfare or actual mileage not to exceed airfare from point of departure; whichever is less. Lodging, student materials, books, and ground transportation from/to airports in Washington, D.C., are provided by the National Fire Academy. Students staying on campus must purchase a meal ticket. The cost is $20 per day at our cafeteria (cost subject to change). You also may want to bring extra money for a class shirt, class picture, or other incidentals.

    The Volunteer Incentive Program begins on Sunday morning with a student orientation at 8:00 a.m. Classes begin at 9:00 a.m. following orientation and continue through the following Friday at 4:00 p.m. Accepted students must travel to the NFA on the day before class begins (Saturday). Transportation arrangements should not be made until you receive an acceptance packet from the National Emergency Training Center Office of Admissions.

  • 2-Day Program (formerly State Weekend Program)

    The 2-Day Program is offered at NFA as an educational opportunity for fire and rescue personnel from specific States to attend 2-day courses. These courses strengthen a State's fire service community through education, personal networking, and a shared collegial experience. The 2-Day Program offers students an opportunity to grow professionally through a quality educational experience and to increase their knowledge and skills to provide a safe and effective response to their communities.

    State Fire Training agencies sponsor the 2-Day Program in cooperation with NFA. The State agency selects the courses and recruits and enrolls the students according to established student selection criteria. The NFA hosts the program and provides the instruction and course materials. This program provides a unique opportunity for NFA and State fire training agencies to collaborate in the delivery of a quality training program.

    Course materials are provided at no cost to participants. Lodging is provided at no cost to representatives of career or volunteer departments and State/local governments. Meal costs and transportation expenses are the responsibility of the individual participants or the sponsoring agencies.
