The ATW ARFF Training Center is the nation’s premier center for aircraft rescue and fire fighting (ARFF) training located at Fox Valley Technical College’s Public Safety Training Center (PSTC), adjacent to the Appleton International Airport (ATW), in Appleton, Wisconsin.
The world-class training field provides multiple hands-on training scenarios on a one-of-a-kind Boeing 777 Specialized Aircraft Fire Trainer with a broken wing and a Cessna Skyhawk training prop. They are set on a spill-fire area of 96 individually-controlled fire zones, which is the largest in the training industry. The props are designed for realistic emergency aircraft fire and rescue response with multiple scenarios to teach respondents the proper approach and attack techniques.
ARFF Certification courses are accepted by the FAA and meet the training requirements for FAR Part 139.319. The ATW ARFF Training Center is pending accreditation by the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC). Accreditation guarantees the certification programs were reviewed by fire service professionals to meet national and international standards. Prior IFSAC certification is not required to attend classes.
