In the second semester, our students continue to enhance their practical learning taught by Humber College Fire instructors at a Greater Toronto Area Fire Department Training Centre. Students will utilize propane props, auto extrication pads, and access a burn building to develop their skills.
The Pre-Service Firefighter Education and Training program at Humber is designed, developed and delivered extensively through hands-on experiences. Curriculum is delivered by professional and passionate instructors, who one day, might be standing next to you as a firefighter team member. Their goal is to teach you thoroughly and reinforce the learning through drills.
