Fire academy to hold information sessions

Antelope Valley College’s municipal fire academy will offer informational meetings to anyone interested in learning more about its fall 2012 academy.

Men and women may attend any one of the meetings offered 5-6 p.m. March 27, April 10, April 24 and May 8 in TE2 120 at Antelope Valley College’s Lancaster campus, 3041 W. Ave. K. The TE2 building is located just east of the Gymnasium adjacent to the Douglas Skyrocket.

Prospective students will learn about the academy application process, costs, prerequisites, financial aid and the academy schedule.

The fire academy was opened in 2007 to prepare people for jobs at municipal fire departments. Students receive instruction from experienced firefighters on the college campus and at the Los Angeles County Fire Department’s North County Training Center.

Students successfully completing the 480-hour training program will achieve a Firefighter I certification from the California State Fire Marshall.
