The North Central Texas College Dual Credit Fire Science program was presented with a 2021 Program of Excellence award at the recent Texas Association of College Technical Educators (TACTE) virtual conference.

Fire Science Instructor and Program Chair Strider Floyd accepted the award on behalf of the department. Floyd credits the success of the program to the support they have received from not only NCTC administration, but also from the local school districts and fire departments.  

“Our biggest asset, though, would be our instructors,” said Floyd. “They are all currently working in the field across North Texas and bring hands-on experience to the classroom.”

The Fire Science program is currently accepting applicants for Fall 2021. For more information, email Claudia Leuschner at
