The video materials they have on there can help you stay ready for what the Academy has to offer. Throughout the past 18 weeks, the camaraderie and togetherness I’ve seen throughout all of the staff at ‘The Rock’ is something I have never experienced before in a career, and I am lucky to now be a part of this family.” ...

Before starting the Academy, I strived to be as academically prepared and my mentors, Firefighter Ray Profit and Lieutenant Jarrett Kotarski allowed me to pick their brain with any question that I had in order to gain as much insight as possible. With their help, as well as attending the Mobile Academies and the workout sessions held by the Fitness Awareness Program and the Vulcan Society, I was able to push myself further than ever before and that is what I enjoyed the most about my time in the Academy.” ...
