Affiliation of National Fire Service College

It is high-time to affiliate the Academy to National Fire Service College, Nagpur for a national level accreditation which will help to attain   national  standards in nearby future. This will help for imparting up to date and advanced training in the science of fire prevention, fire extinction and fire engineering.  After obtaining accreditation from National Fire Service College, Nagpur   this Academy can conduct courses to general public and industry personnel which will become an income generating program for the Govt. of  Kerala. Steps  have been taken for getting accreditation at the earliest.
