Group of firefighters in front of fire

Montgomery Community College provides training for firefighters and rescue workers. Classes are tailored to each fire or rescue department’s needs to help them improve their performance and complete their duties more efficiently and safely. Specialized classes are held throughout the year on campus and at local fire departments throughout Montgomery county. All fire and rescue courses are offered through the college’s Continuing Education Department. Students earn Continuing Education Units (CEU) credit for each class they complete. NC fire and rescue department members are exempt from course registration fees.
