Program Overview

Fire Services Extension Training

Two student firefighters crawl from right to left through a gap between wooden planks during a training exercise.
Classes are held at the Northern Durham Center campus as well as individual fire departments. Training help within local fire departments enables personnel to develop and enhance skill levels with the equipment they use in controlling fires. Any person who is a member of a North Carolina fire department, rescue squad, EMS, or emergency services agency may attend as a fee waived student. Classes offered can lead to Firefighter I and Firefighter II certification by the North Carolina Office of State Fire Marshall.
