Operated by the Bureau of Fire Standards and Training, the Florida State Fire College provides certified firefighter training for Florida fire and emergency services personnel. The College also runs fire-related programs for law enforcement personnel and employees in the fire service industry.

Instead of attending class in Ocala, students at the Florida State Fire College can alternatively opt to take their firefighter training online through Bureau of Fire Standards and Training approved distance learning providers such as Ricky Rescue Training Academy.

For more than a decade, Ricky Rescue has been setting the standard for online fire certificate courses and hybrid or blended learning with a curriculum approved by the BFST at the Florida State Fire College. We offer continuous, ongoing open enrollment for all of our self-paced, SACS Accredited firefighter courses.

As the leader in online firefighter education, Ricky Rescue Training Academy's mission is to help firefighters succeed in achieving their goals. It is also our mission to be affordable and convenient. Ricky Rescue provides practical public safety training to develop students to the peak of their potential.

We provide an opportunity for students to unlock their full potential in their Fire Service career.

Our diverse group of instructors supports students with a comprehensive approach that includes cognitive and skills-based performance training. With satellite locations and instructors conveniently located around the state of Florida, Ricky Rescue Training Academy provides a complete range of BFST at the Florida State Fire College approved, SACS Accredited online and hybrid firefighter courses.

All courses offered by Ricky Rescue Training Academy meet pre-certification requirements that are relevant to the Florida Bureau of Fire Standards and Training state certification tests. Many of the distance learning courses offered provide CEU's to comply with certification renewal requirements. Our articulation agreements with both nationally and regionally accredited colleges allow our students to transfer their certificates towards a college degree seamlessly.
