    OPEN ENROLLMENT FOR CHESTER COUNTY SCHOOLS 
       PM Cadets   
     
    The Octorara Area Career and Technical Education (OA-CTEP) Homeland Security and Protective Services Academy is pleased to announce our partnership with the Chester County Public Safety Training Campus.
     
    The Academy prepares students to apply technical knowledge and skills required to perform entry-level duties in law enforcement, firefighting, emergency medical services, and other safety services. This program stresses the techniques, methods and procedures specific to the areas of criminal justice, fire protection, and emergency medical services, especially in emergency and disaster situations. In addition, students receive training in social and psychological skills, map reading, vehicle and equipment operations, the judicial system, pre-hospital emergency medical care and appropriate emergency assessment, treatment and communication.
     
    The training campus is located at 137 Modena Road in Coatesville.  By moving Octorara Protective Services Academy to this campus, we are now able to provide our students with the state of the art equipment and first responder disciplines to undertake practical training. 

    The Academy offers students two half-day programs at the Chester County Public Safety Training Campus and their academic instruction at their sending district’s high school.  During the 2016-2017 school year, the Academy will run from August 28, 2016 - June 1, 2017. Students may enroll in either a morning session from 8:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. or afternoon session from 11:15 a.m. – 1:45 p.m. During various national and state certification days, students will be required to attend from 8:00 a.m. - 1:45 p.m.  Graduates receive their high school diploma from their sending school district.


     CERTIFICATION OPPORUNITIES
     
    With the declining number of volunteers in the fire service agencies, Octorara Area Homeland Security and Protective Services Program will be training students to be nationally certified fire service personnel.  This program will significantly increase employment opportunities for our Homeland Security and Protective Services Program graduates.
