• 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.

    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.  While Coleman High School hosts courses due to proximity to the training facility, students may remain enrolled at Midland High School or Legacy High School while completing the firefighter program.
