Welcome to the Central Iowa Training Association!


Our Association takes great pride in our Annual Fire School

30th Annual CITA-Kirkwood Fire School

September 24 and 25, 2016
Kirkwood Community College

Fire School Certificates were mailed on October 10, 2016.

Certificates are mailed by each class, if you attended more than one class you will receive them separately this avoids students receiving the incorrect certificate.  If you are missing a certificate it may be because you neglected to sign-in at class.
