<%@LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT" CODEPAGE="1252"%> Verdugo Fire Academy Application

We are currently accepting applications for VFA Class XXI which starts in January 2018. Apply now.

The Verdugo Fire Academy begins each year in January.  Applications are available year round here on the website and most of the year at Glendale Community College.  There is a mandatory orientation that must be attended for anyone interested in the Fire Academy.  This orientation will be with Academy staff to discuss your role in the academy.   If you miss the orientation you will not be considered for enrollment in the academy.  Dates for this orientation will be scheduled after your application is received.

Remember this academy is a year-long para-military program on Thursday Evening's, Saturday's and Sunday's only.  This means you will be making a one year commitment for weekends.  There is no age, sex, race or religious discrimination in the academy.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to apply.  Your completed application packet should include as much of the following as possible: a resume, an application for Glendale College, an application for the Academy, copies of college transcripts, copies of your EMT license, copies of any Fire Fighting certificates you are already in possession of, letters of recommendation from Fire Chiefs, Fire Captains or Fire Marshal's, proof of having taken the CPAT exam and any other materials that pertain to working as a fire fighter. 

Not having all of these things does not disqualify you from being potentially admitted to the Academy but priority will be given to those that have as complete an application as possible. You may keep adding information to your application until the application acceptance deadline. 

If you are still interested in more information about the Verdugo Fire Academy you can E-mail the academy counselor Mirna Najera Or call her at 818-240-1000 extension 5906.
