When do I start and how do I get there?

When you are hired, your employing agency will inform you when to report to the academy for the start of your training program. The academy is located at 917 Central Avenue in Salem, VA (click here for directions.) Please keep in mind that railroad tracks cross several roads near the academy so give yourself extra time in case you have to wait on a train.
