|An FVZA recruit in training|
Freshly "baptized" recruits then began intensive classroom study in vampiric science. In addition, martial arts and weapons training were stepped up. Recruits dubbed the Academy "Fang University," or "Fang U." for short; the nickname eventually came to adorn the hats and T-shirts recruits wore during training.
|Planning an assault on "Fangtown"|
After graduation, junior agents were sent out to FVZA offices around the country, where they spent their first two years working with the Investigations staff before moving on to the Advance and Assault teams.
FVZA agents had the most dangerous job in the world. In the years before the vaccine, an average of 50 agents were bitten by vampires each year. Those that were transformed into vampires were a particular problem, as they retained memories of their FVZA training and thus were one step ahead of agents in the field.
While FVZA agents were as busy as ever in the years following the vaccine, eventually, incidents of vampire attacks shrunk, and the Academy was no longer cost-effective to run. On June 24, 1960, the Academy was closed. Though there briefly was talk of renting the compound out as a movie set, eventually it was torn down and replaced with a golf course.
