Fire and Rescue Training

Sandhills Community College offers training for volunteer and professional fire fighters and rescue personnel at departments in Moore and Hoke Counties. 

Training & Certification

Training consists of in-service training as well as proving state certification through the Office of the State Fire Marshal in North Carolina. Examples of classes are live burn training, arson detection, and hazardous materials classes. We also offer certification programs. All instructors are certified through the state of North Carolina; most hold professional or volunteer status with vast experience in fire and rescue.
