About the Virginia Chief Officer Academy
The Virginia Chief Officer Academy is a week-long residential leadership course designed to prepare the newly appointed or prospective chief officer for various aspects of leadership challenges they may face. The program includes lectures from fire service leaders from across the Commonwealth of Virginia. The VCOA staff and instructors will guide students on a leadership journey starting with personal leadership all the way to executive-level leadership.
This program could not exist without the support of the members and partners of the Virginia Fire Chiefs Association and the Virginia Fire Chiefs Foundation. You can donate to the Virginia Fire Officers Academy through the Foundation either by mail or online. All donations are tax-deductible.
All alumni of the VCOA are encouraged to check out the Facebook page for the Virginia Chief Officer Academy. You will find all the updates about the VCOA on these pages. We also would like to see your support by joining the Virginia Fire Chief Associations Company Officer Section. A portion of the membership fee helps fund training programs offered for company officers. You also receive all the amenities offered to you as a member of the VFCA. Join online today.
