Firefighter Certification Classes
2020 Fall Day Firefighter Academy
Our fall daytime firefighter academy is scheduled to start at 0900 hours, Monday, August 24, 2020. The academy will run until October 30, 2020, with 410 total hours of instruction. This semester, students attending the full academy will receive a scholarship of $500.00. The scholarship will be broken in two allotments, one at the beginning of the academy, and the other at the middle of the academy. This money was made possible by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina through the North Carolina Community College Foundation. Robeson Community College Fire Training program was one of 20 community colleges to receive this money. We encourage students to take advantage of this opportunity. Pre-registration is required.
