Enrollment deadline extended for fall Fire Academy; EMT option added
Officials at Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City have extended the enrollment deadline for the school’s fall Fire Academy. Students have until Aug. 10 to enroll for the eight-week academy, which is scheduled to begin on Aug. 17. The academy provides students with hands-on and classroom learning so they can earn the firefighting certifications* they need to gain employment as a firefighter. Interested students should first apply to OSU-OKC, then enroll through an academic advisor. This program will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
NEW: OSU-OKC has added a 16-week emergency medical technician (EMT) certification option to its fall Fire Academy. Students pursing the EMT option will attend class each Friday during the eight-week academy, and for an additional eight Fridays after. The 16-week timeframe to acquire all firefighting and EMT certifications allows students to enter the workforce upon completion.
*Note: Additional non-firefighting certifications may be required.
