Course Pricing

The pricing quoted above is meant for course delivery at a location other than the Brayton Fire Training Field, for example, a fire station training room or other facility provided by the host department. 

Course delivery during an annual school will have additional facility costs factored into the cost of tuition. Therefore, the cost quoted above may differ from the tuition cost on the annual school announcement. 

Registration Process
