The Firefighter II Certification is one of the fastest growing certificate programs at Hocking College and can be earned in just one semester!

Our students apply direct, hands-on firefighting in our enclosed “burn” building; develop decision-making skills in life-like emergencies and learn to operate our fire trucks, including our 100-foot bucket truck.

With state-of-the-art firefighting equipment, experienced, certified instructors and hands-on practice, our students consistently achieve a 100% passing rate on the state-certified exam. The state mandate of Firefighter II Certification, for all full-time firefighter employees in Ohio, creates full-time, permanent employment for our Firefighter II students.
