Emergency Services Training & Academies
Serving our communities is our shared passion. We study, we train, we rehearse, and we learn to save lives.
For more than 50 years, Oakland Community College has trained police officers, firefighters, EMTs, paramedics and emergency dispatchers. They come to OCC to start their careers, to improve skills and to improve their ability to work together as a team.
CREST: The Only Emergency Services Sim Lab in Michigan
Agencies come to OCC’s Combined Regional Emergency Services Training Center (CREST) to train as a team and to rehearse interagency collaboration. We can customize training to your needs and also deliver them at your location.
Train your police, fire or EMS teams with controlled, live scenarios at CREST — one of the only emergency services simulation labs in the state. This innovative training “city” includes furnished houses, a bank, convenience store, motel and a five-story fire training tower.
