COVID testing for US arrivals

by Becky Myers -

Posting from the CDC website:

To reduce introduction and spread of new variants of SARS-CoV-2, CDC issued an Order pdf icon[PDF – 9 pages] effective January 26, 2021. It requires all air passengers arriving to the US from a foreign country to get tested for COVID-19 infection no more than 3 days before their flight departs and to provide proof of the negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding the flight. For more information on this testing requirement, see the Frequently Asked Questions.  

COVID testing for Canadians

by Becky Myers -

1-13-2021 UPDATE: We will be able to provide our outgoing International travelers a COVID test.

We are aware of the new requirements put in place by the Canadian government for all returning residents to Canada to be tested for COVID 72 hours prior to returning. We are working on a solution/option for our students to get this taken care while you are at boot camp. 

We will keep you posted as we work on an answer for you. Stay safe and healthy!

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! 

We are still booking boot camps and will reschedule as needed if COVID issues prevent us from doing so. 

If you are done testing and ready to book a boot camp please email with your request to schedule. We are working hard on getting everyone booked and adding additional 2 week camps as needed.

Thank you.

With your well-being in mind, we have provided our staff with helpful guidelines and information provided by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This information details how to identify COVID-19 symptoms and mitigate its transmission, as well as guidance on how to handle and report suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19. In addition, we have trained and equipped our team with access to industry-standard cleaning and disinfecting supplies to achieve the highest standards of cleanliness, disinfection and hygiene for all areas throughout our Texas campus.

TCFP Personal Identification Number (PIN) requirement

by Wade Green -

Very important information for Fire Students! Beginning in 2013 the Texas Commission on Fire Protection requires all students enrolled in a commission approved fire training class to have a PIN.  If you are enrolled in any of Training Division's courses (excluding EMS or SFFMA courses), you will need to go to the TCFP website and request a PIN if you do not already have one. Your  PIN# should be given to as soon as possible.(include the name of your class; Fire, Driver Operator, etc.) Any delay in sending in this number could result in the delay of your hands on class. This number is used to add individuals to rosters for skills and certification testing. You can go to: to create your PIN.


 Thank you, 

TD Administration
