Butler Tech Public Safety Training

Communities and agencies across Ohio are looking for team players with the training, judgment and skills to meet the unique challenges of a career in public safety. Butler Tech’s Basic Police Academy, Fire Academy and Paramedic Academy are among the best in Ohio.

Our part-time safety courses cover a range of issues for those interested in first aid and professional security. The first aid training, including first aid skill check and refresher classes, prepare students to respond to health emergencies. Because our public safety career programs are recognized as among the best in Ohio, our short-term classes offer the same high level of instruction. Gun owners work with experienced, certified instructors in our concealed carry course, refresher class and firearms shoot.
