66 Scholars from NFA North Campus Earn Security Certificates


Sixty-six scholars from Newburgh Free Academy, North Campus received certificates as a result of completion of work with the Criminal Justice and Emergency Management courses offered at their high school. The certificates can be activated once scholars turn 18, if they haven’t already, and will allow them to become security guards.

 

Graduates have worked in places like Target, nearby casinos, or at their local colleges as a result of the certificates earned from this program. The certificate has also enhanced student’s resumes as they applied for work as resident assistances or other opportunities on or near the colleges they attend.

 

Since 2002, 1,100 scholars have completed these programs. The courses are offered to students at no charge. Graduates are required to take refresher courses to renew their certificates on occasion should they wish to stay in a field related to security.


“It is trust, love, and respect between teachers and students that makes this program work so well.” Mr. Matteo Doddo, co-principal of Newburgh Free Academy, North Campus

“Mr. Toomey and I have over 50 years of police experience between the two of us. In our experience and what we always teach is the use of your mind and your words to de-escalate situations, which is a major part of our programs.” Mr. Michael Truncale

 

Throughout the year, Pathway to Criminal Justice and Emergency Management programs have visited Cronomer Valley Fire Department, hosted the FBI for workshops, and hosted a mock car accident demonstration.

Mr. Timothy Toomey and Mr. Michael Truncale teach courses for the Pathway to Criminal Justice and Emergency Management programs.
