Two Former CTC Students Attend South Carolina Fire Academy Recruit School

CTC is proud to announce that two 2012 graduating seniors, Brandon Eddleman and Dakotah McConnell, are currently enrolled in the South Carolina Fire Academy 1151 Recruit School in Columbia.  Both student excelled in the CTC program were ranked among the top of their class.  They are currently in week three and doing well.  We wish them the best of luck and can't wait to hear more from them after graduation.

Welcome Back

Welcome back to another year of CTC Firefighting!  I am excited about what this year holds for our program.  Over the summer, we have been hard at work at improving the curriculum offered to our students at CTC.  This year with the help of the South Carolina Fire Academy, we will be offering our Junior and Senior Classes the opportunity to become NFPA Firefighter I certified.  Students will also be able to take South Carolina Fire Academy's Hazmat Awareness and Hazmat Operations.  The students will be taking the new Hybrid Learning classes offered from the Fire Academy.  In the Hybrid Learning setting, students complete an online independent study portion of the program before mastering the skills portions in a traditional learning environment.  CTC is one of three schools in the state offering the Hybrid Learning classes this year from the Fire Academy.  CTC is also looking forward to adding additional online learning classes for its students as they become available.  The Firefighter I certification is the "job standard" for entry level firefighters and CTC students will be marketable and employable after graduation because of this certification.
