Non-Credit Program for First-Responders

New Jersey City University (NJCU) now offers a non-credit Public Safety Program through its Professional Education and Lifelong Learning (PELL) Division.

First responders including paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers, firefighters, rescuers, and other trained members of organizations tasked with public safety-related work will receive training on a variety of public safety issues.

Registration is now open. Classes will be held throughout the Fall 2018 semester on the main campus of NJCU at 2039 Kennedy Boulevard in Jersey City.

Dr. Michael Edmondson, Dean of PELL, announced the Public Safety Program stating, “Our local and national partnerships make this important training program possible for first responders. We have partnered with NJCU alum Paulo Henriques, who coordinated efforts; Joe Vasil, a document fraud expert; and the National Emergency Communications Institute (NECI), which will offer a three-day train-the-trainer series of workshops in November.”

The non-credit Public Safety program offered by NJCU will serve first responders in Jersey City, Hudson County, and the surrounding area, who seek additional training in the following subjects: 

Registration discounts are available for those police, fire, or other related departments that register participants as a group. The first class is scheduled for Friday, September 14, 2018.
