Turn your fire training into a degree in emergency services, specializing in Fire Science/Emergency Medical Technician/Criminal Justice.

Students who train with the South Carolina Fire Academy or National Fire Academy can now use that experience toward a degree from OCtech. This is the perfect opportunity for volunteer firefighters and public safety officers to expand their knowledge and advance their career. The college will award exemption credit for training sponsored and conducted by the S.C. Fire Academy.
