Public Safety Training Center

Fox Valley Technical College’s new Public Safety Training Center (PSTC) provides vital hands-on tactical training for students and public safety professionals. As a national leader in public safety training and resources, Fox Valley Technical College can provide you and your staff with the tools and knowledge you need most. 

Located adjacent to Outagamie County Regional Airport in Appleton, Wisconsin, the Center combines classroom training with hands-on practice in a real-world setting. The PSTC will be used to train tactics, investigation, firefighting, technical rescue, pursuit, air disasters, and much more. No other fully integrated training facility exists in the Midwest and only a handful of other facilities meet even a portion of the combined training needs that this facility offers.

Fox Valley Technical College is an official training partner of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
