About the Academy

The Indiana Fire and Public Safety Academy is an education and training subdivision of the Division of Fire and Building Safety.

The Academy has two subsections: (1) Public Safety and (2) Fire Training and Certifications. The Fire Training and Certifications staff establishes inspection training requirements for members of volunteer fire companies and certifies individuals who meet those requirements.

They also collaborate with public safety boards and commissions in the state to establish criteria for certification and credentialing of public safety personnel.

Flyers for non-state-sponsored educational opportunities, such as open classes organized and hosted by local fire departments, may be shared on the Educational Opportunities page as well. Visit the page to learn how to submit them.

The Indiana General Assembly approved key components of Gov. Holcomb's 2023 Next Level Agenda in the biennial budget. With the support of lawmakers, the state will invest more than $7 million in a regional firefighter training infrastructure to provide a standardized training model across the state. With the help of IDHS, the existing training locations will be enhanced, and new sites will be created to help cover gaps that exist in areas of Indiana. The state will also dedicate $10 million to purchase necessary equipment for volunteer firefighting organizations. Learn more about NextLevel Firefighter Training
