California Fire Academy at Monterey Bay


In conjunction with Monterey Peninsula College, the California Fire Academy at Monterey Bay is located at the former Fort Ord Military Base in Seaside, CA.   An accredited State Fire Training Regional Training Center,  the California Fire Academy at Monterey Bay offers a variety of State Fire Training courses including the Fire Command, Fire Management, Fire Prevention, Fire Instructor, Fire Investigator, and Fire Inspector series.  Formally the California Fire Academy at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, the California Fire Academy at Monterey Bay has been in continuous operation since 1977 providing hundreds of upper level State Fire Training Classes to thousands of firefighters from throughout California.

With assistance from a State Bond Measure through Monterey Peninsula College, the California Fire Academy at Monterey Bay is now located at the new Monterey Peninsula College Public Safety Training Center.  Opened in December 2009, the Center is also home to the Monterey Peninsula College Fire and Police Academies. This modern facility has multiple classrooms, office space, and plenty of on-site parking. Future plans include a field training site for both fire service and law enforcement.
