The Fire Academy Training Division
Fire academy for all WA Fire Careers agencies is administered by the South King County Fire Training Consortium (SKCFTC). The SKCFTC is the training division for select fire and life safety agencies throughout South King County. SKCFTC combines the resources and training officers from member agencies into a single training office to provide consistent, regional training to area firefighters throughout all of the agencies represented.
By sharing a single consistent training curriculum, departments accomplish more annual training, reduce costs and eliminate duplication of training development efforts. Mutual aid operations are enhanced and streamlined when responders from different departments are trained by a single training program. Specialization of training officers allow the training consortium to focus efforts in areas such as Professional Development and Health and Wellness. Improving fitness and nutrition, preventing injury, and providing training and resources to deal with the personal challenges of the fire service profession will help members reach retirement healthy and safe. Our members are worthy of our support and investment in their health and well-being.
