Suncrest launches revamped firefighter training program


Suncrest College has launched a revamped National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) training program. The firefighting program — which was one of the former Parkland College’s flagship courses — was closed after the 2021 academic year, but relaunched after the Parkland-Cumberland College merger that created Suncrest. “We have a grand history here, but this was an opportunity for us to expand, to modernize some of our equipment and continue to attract students here locally, with the hope that they stay local,” said Suncrest President Alison Dubreuil. The program will focus on training and retaining local firefighting talent and supporting the agencies who depend on Suncrest to produce talent.
