Attend one of the upcoming Texas Fire Chiefs Academies. This Academy is quickly becoming a desired/required credential for fire chief positions throughout the state, as seen in several recent job postings. And your department may qualify for up to $575 of funding that could go toward tuition! Review the Texas Forest Service Volunteer Fire Department Assistance Program guidelines. Current chiefs and executive officers are especially encouraged to attend. Graduates of the Academy receive the Certified Fire Executive or CFE professional designation.
