Program Description:

The Fire Fighter I Technical Certificate of Credit program is conducted in cooperation with the Georgia Fire Academy and Georgia Firefighter Standards and Training to ensure graduates have the skills, knowledge and credentials to serve as firefighters in paid and volunteer fire departments. Graduates will be tested and certified at the National Professional Qualifications level.

Note: Upon successful completion of the Firefighter I and Firefighter II programs, students may participate in the State Firefighter Certification testing. However, in order to participate in the certification testing process, students must first present documentation that they are in good physical condition as determined by a medical exam. Because the courses in Firefighter I and Firefighter II are physically strenuous in nature, GNTC strongly recommends that students get their medical exam prior to participating in the courses.
