From Our Director, Kenneth Harrison

Our mission is to provide students and emergency services agencies with education and training in all areas of public safety (Fire Science, EMS, and Criminal Justice). We offer opportunities to earn Associate of Applied Science degrees, certificates,  and national professional emergency service certifications. Our website will provide you with important information specific to each program. Our instructors have many years of experience within their discipline, and most work with local public safety agencies (fire departments, EMS, EMA, and law enforcement). We are committed to providing educational excellence to ensure successful learning outcomes.

On September 21, 2015, CVCC and the Alabama Fire College entered into a partnership agreement that affords our fire science and emergency services students opportunities to earn both college credit and national professional fire and emergency service certifications simultaneously. These certifications are at no additional cost to students. This partnership is unprecedented; it gives our students a competitive edge in the job market and currently employed public safety professionals an avenue for promotional advancement.

I hope that you will find this website to be informative and that it helps you select a public safety program best suited to your educational and career goals.

Thank you for taking time to visit our site. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me or any of our public safety instructors.
