Wake Tech trains fire and rescue personnel throughout Wake and surrounding counties. The Fire Service program is designed to provide full time and volunteer fire departments with the opportunity to gain knowledge, practical skills, and certification in modern firefighting, rescue, officer development, and fire department management skills. A broad range of specialty classes, based on both departmental needs and new training standards are offered throughout the year.
Classes are held at the Public Safety Education 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.
