Firefighter I & II Info:

In order to apply for Firefighter positions in some agencies, one may be required to either possess a Firefighter I Academy completion certificate from an approved "Accredited Regional Training Program" (ARTP) such as Chabot College, or California State Firefighter I Certification. 


California State Firefighter I Certification is typically received after one either goes through a State approved Firefighter I Academy, or completes the required sign-offs through a guided process within a fire department and then completes either six (6) months of full-time paid Firefighter experience, or one (1) year of part-time paid, or volunteer Firefighter experience.

 

California State Firefighter II Certification is usually provided by a fire department during the probationary period, and is not something that is required upon employment. 

 

For more information about California State Certification as a Firefighter I or II, please visit the California State Fire Training website.

 

Other Accredted Regional Training Programs (ARTPs), also known as "Firefighter 1 Academies":

 

There are about 40 State Fire Training Accredited Regional Training Program (ARTP) Firefighter 1 Academies in California. For a list of other California State Fire Training Accredited Academies (besides Chabot College), go to: http://osfm.fire.ca.gov/training/accreditedacademies.php
