Welcome to the Shepherdstown Fire Department Training Center Site
Education impacts learning and the development of individuals by improving verbal skills, quantitative skills, and the ability to use higher-level thinking, decision-making skills, intellectual flexibility, reflective judgment, and communications. Education also impacts attitudes and values by developing a more positive self-image, encouraging autonomy and independence, increasing the ability to deal with change and ambiguity, developing a structure for principled reasoning and moral judgment, and improving career mobility.
The goal of the Shepherdstown Fire Department training programs are to prepare competent emergency medical technicians in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains through the delivery of safe and effective training.
The Shepherdstown Fire Department Instructional Program is approved as an EMT training agency in the State of West Virginia as identified by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Services Division of the Office of Emergency Medical Services.
