CFCC’s Public Safety Training Expo Connects Job Seekers with Employers
Castle Hayne, NC — Cape Fear Community College hosted a Public Safety Training Expo on Thursday, December 2, 2021, from 6 until 8 p.m. at its North Campus in Castle Hayne, NC to offer the public the opportunity to learn about fire, EMS, and law enforcement training programs at CFCC and connect with local employers. The expo was held in the BB&T Auditorium in the McKeithan Center.
“CFCC’s Public Safety Programs train individuals for high-paying, rewarding careers. We train law enforcement officers, first responders, medical technicians, and firefighters from the Cape Fear region and beyond,” said CFCC Vice President of Economic and Workforce Development John Downing.
“We were excited to host this first-ever Public Safety Expo to connect prospective employees with employers. We strive to bridge the gap between short-term training and employer staffing shortages and the success of this event is due, in large part, to the collaborations and partnerships with public safety agencies, NC Works, and Two Hawk Employment Services,” said CFCC Director of Law Enforcement Programs Tim Fuss. “We plan to make this an annual event.”
