Western Technical College offers a wide variety of courses for the Fire Service to include Entry Level Firefighter through Fire Officer Certified, with numerous specialized courses in areas such as Haz-Mat, Wildland Firefighting, Public Safety SCUBA Diver & Technical Rescue. The College is also in a Cooperative Program to offer an Associate Degree in Fire Protection Technician. Hands-on Fire Training is conducted at our Sparta Campus, and also off campus with two local live fire burn towers/Class "B" Burn Pits. We are presently working with the US Army on a joint agreement which would provide us with an additional Tower/Pit for increased training options, such as airport firefighter.
