​Join a Cohort

Fast Track your Leadership Success

Brave Fire Leader Online Academy

What is a cohort?  A cohort is a group of students working together through the same academic curriculum.

Compared to a proceed-at-your-own-pace model, a cohort invites student participation, fosters creativity, builds leadership skills, generates a sense of community.  This format proceeds at a predetermined pace.

There is NO ADDITIONAL COST to participate in a cohort!

Perfect option for current officers, future-potentials, new officers, mid-level chiefs and aspiring leaders.  There is structure AND flexibility that works with your busy schedules.  Budget friendly by eliminating travel expenses and

back-filling staff.
