The Midland College Firefighter Certification Program is designed to prepare aspiring firefighters to meet and exceed all state requirements in preparation for a career as a firefighter. Students who complete all Midland College and TCFP eligibility requirements will be prepared to take the Texas Commission on Fire Protection Basic Suppression Exam that certifies individuals for entry-level firefighter positions statewide.
Coleman High School was chosen to host the Firefighter Program of Study due to their smaller class sizes, flexibility in scheduling, and proximity to the Harris Field Training Facility. Students are eligible to apply starting in January of their 10th grade year. If accepted, coursework will begin at the start of the following school year.
The Law Enforcement program of study teaches CTE learners about the development of, adherence to, and protection of various branches of law. Students will learn how to appropriately and legally respond to breaches in the law according to statutory rules and regulations as well as investigate how and why the breaches occurred.
