With a wide variety of classes led by experienced instructors, Pacific Atlantic Professional Academy (PAPA) teaches students the skills needed for a successful career in the maritime industry. With our state of the art learning facility, we can provide the training necessary to create experienced professionals to fill the needs of the growing maritime workforce.
Why We Are Different
As a female-owned, non-profit organization, PAPA already stands out from the other firefighting schools on the east coast. A commitment to quality training is our driving force, and we offer many unique features such as a fire trainer simulator, which will be used to train area firefighters, a damage control trainer to teach mariners how to cope with maritime disasters, and a training pool which is used to teach marine water survival.
