A Message from the Director of
Training and Education

{CFA Building}

On behalf of the Commission on Fire Prevention and Control/Connecticut Fire Academy’s Training Staff, I am pleased to welcome you to the Connecticut Fire Net.

The Connecticut Fire Academy is a State of the Art Training Facility, operated under the guidance and administration of the Connecticut Commission on Fire Prevention and Control. The Training Division is responsible for the development and delivery of Fire & Rescue, Hazardous Materials, and other Emergency Services related training programs. The division also offers a variety of Industrial OSHA compliance programs to assist private Industry to comply with State and Federal Health and Safety regulations.

Programs are offered at the Academy complex located at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks. Classes are also offered throughout the State. Faculty consists of 170 part-time instructors.

Additional classes are delivered in the regions through a cooperative effort with the (7) independent Regional Schools that extend the use of their facilities. Using local fire stations is another way we bring classes to the students’ community.

The Connecticut Fire Academy is approved by the Military Air National Guard Bureau and selected as a Training Facility for ARFF Live Fire Training for Air National Guard personnel.

The Connecticut Fire Academy’s modern classrooms, meeting and lodging facilities are available for rental to other State Agencies and private groups for a minimum fee, subject to availability.

Please use this Internet site to access current training program information and our calendar of learning opportunities.

The Training Staff welcomes any suggestions that could enhance our services to you.

Training for Excellence
