Reading and passing written examinations is an essential element of many of the FETI programs. Requests for accommodations for disabilities will be considered on a case by case basis once adequate contemporary documentation of the disability and of the need for the specific accommodations requested have been provided. Accommodations which would alter essential elements of a particular program will not be granted.

Protective Clothing Requirements: Students, or their sponsoring agency, are required to provide the necessary protective clothing (bunker coat, pants, boots, gloves, helmet, hoods etc.) that meets the NFPA Standard 1971: Protective Ensemble for Structural Fire Fighting. Also long-sleeve shirts and long pants are to be worn under the protective clothing at all times. Inspection of protective clothing will precede training to assure that equipment meets requirements. Students without appropriate protective clothing will not be allowed to participate in practical training.

If you are taking any course to acquire certification, an additional application and fee will be required.
