            I can't give you specific info on Connecticut's academy. I have been through two others and found the hard work was well worth it in the end. You'll meet people from all over the state and some of these classmates will be friends for a lifetime. Pay attention, work hard, you'll be fine.

                I was in class 39 we had 2 volly's in there by the time class was over one was offered a job. What a good time. Lots of hard work running and studying. I had a good time and learned alot. Instructors are first class up there you can tell they really care about teaching and not just presenting material and testing you on it. You will have a good time and make many friends.

                  What?. You mean I can come to the great town of CT and go to the academy of ct and be a real fireman without being hired somewhere? I asked this question months ago.

                      Whatever Bohan was at the academy, he's been a nice black cloud since he showed up on the line.

                      Three months on the line and we've caught 4 or 5 good jobs on our shift.

                        I hope Newington VOLUNTEER Fire Department isn't paying 5 grand to send you. That would be a huge waste of money.
