FESTI is a private career college providing exceptional training for fire and emergency service professionals. We also offer corporate training and team building experiences. We are part of Canada’s largest international airport, Toronto Pearson, and the airport’s fully operational fire service. We have three operational fire stations separate from FESTI. Station 1 contains our headquarters and Fire Chief who manages the entire emergency response and FESTI operation.
Here, you will experience things in life that only first responders do. Our vision is to be the recognized, worldwide training leader in emergency services, occupational health and safety, and airport emergency preparedness.
Firefighting requires confidence, resilience, effective communication and the ability to react under pressure. And this is only possible by combining a theoretical understanding of the discipline as well as practical hands-on experience. As part of the GTAA’s fire department, responsible for Canada’s busiest airport, FESTI’s training programs holistically deliver on both the theoretical and practical needs of this challenging industry.
In fact, our training program is the only one in the country operated by a working fire department, allowing participants to be immersed in the firefighting community from the get-go. Our full-time instructors, state-of-the-art-facility and props provide a comprehensive environment like no other.
So, whether you are looking to explore firefighting as a career, want to grow further as an emergency service professional, want to learn and transfer the skills that make firefighters such strong communicators and leaders, or just need a fun playground to unleash your creativity, let us help you take that next step.
Because the best training and environment are what enable us to raise the best firefighters.
Come and experience how FESTI can you help you rise further too.
