CFTDA is an organization dedicated to promoting high quality fire technology education and training. Membership includes many community colleges throughout California. Our primary goal is to facilitate cooperation and information exchange between community college fire technology programs.

President’s Message

As the 2019 President of the California Fire Technology Director’s Association (CFTDA), I would like to welcome you to our organization and webpage. The CFTDA is comprised of the Directors, Coordinators, Faculty and Staff of College Fire Programs and Training Consortiums whose goal is to deliver high quality fire instruction that meets national and state standards. We recognize this is best accomplished by effective communication amongst a wide range of stakeholders across the State and we work towards this goal through the use of quarterly meetings, networking and outreach with other stakeholders such as the California Training Officers. We also serve on relevant educational organizations such as the State Fire Training’s Statewide Training and Education Advisory Committee (STEAC), the Chancellor’s Public Safety Committee and the Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education program (FESHE) at the National Fire Academy. If you are employed by a Fire Program in a college setting, work as a Training Officer in a fire agency or simply have an interest in the delivery of quality fire education, we welcome your participation and would encourage you to join. Having benefited enormously when I became a member, I will guarantee any investment you make participating you will find well worth the time. Membership information can be found on our website.

Respectfully,

Matthew Jewett,
President, CFTDA
Fire Technology Professor
