What Students Say About Sandhills Quotes from our most recent Current Student Survey The instructors are very professional, hardworking and more than willing to help. My teachers never fail to impress. Your guidance and encouragement has helped my transition from workplace-to student much easier! The advisors really take the time to get to know you and make sure you are on the right track! Loved all the help they gave! Whenever I need help I always get directed to the person that can help me the most. Summer Course Credits Can Transfer to Home College Generally, students away at college return home for the summer. When they do, they either find work, travel, volunteer, or take internships. Sandhills Community College often sees many college students home for the summer take college-credit courses and transfer the credits back to their college or university. The cost of a class is usually substantially less at Sandhills when compared to the home college. A few of the subject areas that transfer are: science, English, mathematics, history, humanities, psychology, religion, and sociology. Typically, only the credits transfer, not the grade. Students are advised to verify beforehand with their home college that the credits for the courses they plan to take will transfer. I love that the advisors and teachers are very helpful and available (either through or in person). Even though I don t get face-to-face time with my online instructors I have to say that I am relieved and impressed that they get back to me through so quickly.

The cadets who begin the program n July will be Class Five for the ire Academy, says Director had Thomason, who also serves s Captain of the Cary Fire epartment. We are proud of the raduates of our program who are ow contributing to fire services in oore County and beyond. diverse class of cadets is xpected. The students from past cademies have ranged in age from 7 to 35, and include people right ut of high school, former military ersonnel, and people who want to change careers, Thomason says. But they all have one thing in common: the desire to learn how to expertly serve their communities with excellent firefighting skills. Our Fire Academy trains students to become competent, confident and fully prepared, adds Instructor Forrest Cox, Captain of the Aberdeen Fire and Rescue Department. We have high expectations of our students and, in turn, we make sure their training is complete and top notch. Justin Taylor, a fulltime firefighter with the Southern Pines Fire Department, graduated from Sandhills Fire Academy in The instructors are very knowledgeable because they have real experiences to share, Taylor says. They know what we need to not only get certified but also be ready to step into the job. I would recommend Sandhills Fire Academy to anyone interested in a career in fire services, says Austin Moss, also a 2012 graduate of the program and now a fulltime firefighter in the Aberdeen Fire and Rescue Department. The instructors are tough it builds structure. But the instructors are right there to help you if you re struggling. They give one-on-one help where needed. Top Notch Training Center Fire services have changed from the days when primarily a volunteer force. Today, highly trained, competent individuals staff fire and rescue departments. A considerable advantage to cadets in training is Sandhills facility, the Larry R. Caddell Public Safety Training Center. Located on almost 40 acres on Niagara-Carthage Road, this permanent training center is state-of-the art in fire training. A residential burn building, four-story drill tower, and an auto extrication/burn pit help instructors teach fire and rescue techniques in a wide range of situations and circumstances. We create conditions that develop skills you can t learn from books or in a classroom, says Thomason. The feedback we re getting from fire chiefs who have hired our graduates tells us we re on the right track in preparing the cadets. 14
17 SUMMER 2015 CONTINUING EDUCATION The North Carolina Office of the State Fire Marshal approves Sandhills Fire Academy program. Job Opportunities Helping graduates secure jobs is an additional advantage of the Sandhills Fire Academy, Cox points out. We have chiefs and deputy chiefs visiting our classes, getting to know our cadets, he says. We have recruiters coming from across the state to discuss job opportunities in their fire departments. Also, we let students know of job openings statewide. Often cadets start the interview and hiring process with departments before graduation. Sandhills cadets get significant assistance with the interview process. We set up a mock interview with each cadet, says Thomason. A panel of fire chiefs evaluate the cadet s interviewing skills and give pointers. Class Five Begins in July Current volunteer firefighters may be eligible for a fee waiver based on their membership with a local, city, county, or state fire department. Firefighter Moss, who graduated from Pinecrest High School in 2008, had been a volunteer at Aberdeen s fire department and had his class fees waived for all his classes at Sandhills Fire Academy. Fire Academy Class Five is a fulltime program with classes held Mondays through Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. This July academy is a great opportunity for graduating high school seniors who are finishing up in June, says Capt.
