NETC Training. Free just travel costs

National Emergency Training Center
October 19, 2011

The application period is now open for the National Fire Academy.

The open dates are October 15 through December 15, 2011 for the classes scheduled for April through September, 2012.

If you have not been to the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) in Emmitsburg, Maryland you are missing a national gem of emergency response and emergency management training.

Three entities occupy the grounds of the National Emergency Training Center- the National Fire Academy, the Emergency Management Institute and the United States Fire Administration. Located in northern Maryland, just 10 miles from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, it is the ideal location for great training and to meet other responders from all over the country.

Take a box of business cards and be prepared to enlarge your professional network many-fold.

The variety of classes range from technical to executive and are provided in a college atmosphere and professional environment. You say your budget can’t afford travel to Maryland…? The classes are free, your lodging on campus is free and the airfare is reimbursed. Your only direct cost is your meal ticket at the campus meal hall. Funded by Congress through the Department of Homeland Security via FEMA’s budget, this is a “don’t miss” destination as early as possible in your career.

Here’s the website to get you started.
