"I had a great experience at the VCOA in 2017. The College setting was a great place all around to learn. The daily class schedule and subject matter did broaden my knowledge. The best part with the group we had, were the daily discussions on numerous topics. The hole experience has given me new insights into my leadership. The coaching and mentoring sessions drove home many of the points taught in the classroom. I have actually put many things to work within my company. The entire process helped me grow not only as a fire service leader but as a person. Thank you to all who were involved with this great experience. I highly recommend higher learning and education."
