Berkeley Safety Training & Education Pathway (B-STEP)
What is a pathway?
Students are engaged in a supportive learning environment with enthusiastic, knowledgeable and passionate instructors. They are also matched with mentors from the Berkeley Fire Department who provide support and insight into creating a career in public safety.
Students are placed in fire department work experience programs, hospital clinical rotations and paramedic ambulance internships to gain the necessary hands-on experience to function as integral members of the fire and emergency medical services workforce.
The goal of B-STEP is to prepare students for jobs that exist in local fire and emergency medical providers. B-STEP partners with these providers and offers assistance to its students through the job application and testing process.
