Texas Commission on Fire Protection Licensing Requirements
The ACC Fire Academy satisfies TCFP’s basic training and testing requirements. Additional licensing prerequisites include a criminal background check and emergency medical responder training. Emergency medical response training is not part of the Fire Academy curriculum, but students may take EMT certification classes through ACC’s Emergency Medical Services Professions department to fulfill this requirement.
If you have any questions about the TCFP licensing requirements prior to enrolling in the academy, please contact the ACC Fire Protection Technology Department.
