Pre-Service Firefighter Education and Training

If you want to become a firefighter, Cambrian's partnerships with fire departments and the community offer you intensive practical experience and testing in both simulated and controlled live fire training scenarios. You’ll be prepared for firefighter jobs across Ontario.

The curriculum is based on the requirements for the NFPA 1001 and NFPA 472 standards as identified by the National Fire Protection Association. Graduates of the Pre-Service Firefighter Education and Training program are eligible to write the OFM Provincial Firefighter test, and upon successful completion of this test, can apply for standing under NFPA 1001 as Firefighter Level I and II from the Proboard.
