Firefighter Technologies

The Firefighter Academy at Hickory Career & Arts Magnet School is an excellent opportunity for high school students that are interested in a career in firefighting to start taking the classes that will allow them to become a North Carolina certified firefighter.

This course allows high school students to take fire fighting classes that are usually offered only to those that are affiliated with a fire department and are overseen by a community college through the continuing education departments.

The academy works with the North Carolina Office of the State Fire Marshall to provide the course layout and materials.

Students are tested at the NCOSFM level to achieve the certifications in specified areas.
