This program and other similar programs statewide are intended to provide an educated recruit base for fire departments in the state of California. This program is designed to meet the dynamic challenges of fire department needs for pre-service recruits in the 21st century and enabling students to successfully become employed by fire departments throughout the state of California and within the Ventura County Community College Districts service area. Oxnard College Academy graduates are employed in every Fire Department in Ventura County and many departments in California.

Support the Fire Academy

The financial burden on students to complete the OC Dental Hygiene program is significant. The greatest expense is the equipment they use as part of their education. Our goal is to raise funds to offset the overall expenses incurred by Oxnard College to purchase the kits. By doing so, we’ll help alleviate the financial stress placed upon students, so they can focus on their career pathways. Please consider making a contribution to the OC Dental Hygiene program.
