In conjunction with the Oxnard College Fire Technology Department, the mission of “The Training Ground”  is to build on the concept of a one stop shop.  One program, one website, one place to go for all the information Fire Tech students will need to succeed in their personal and educational goals. It is our commitment to promote student learning by providing an educational website filled with the resources available to gain experience and develop basic skills that will lead directly to job opportunities, related to emergency response.  We inspire students to navigate through our website and challenge them to find their path to success.
