Chief Pete Marshall

The mission of the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District's Training and Education Section is to provide effective and realistic training for fire-rescue service standards, career development needs, and emergency response demands.

We believe in the achievement of professionalism by employing dedication, teamwork, and the application of the best methodologies and techniques in fire-rescue education and safety.

The Training and Education Section is responsible for the training and the continued education of the District's uniformed and non-uniformed personnel. It develops and provides district-wide training for new recruits, probationary, and permanent employees.

The Section is comprised of four main units: Academy Training, Probationary Development, In-Service Training, and Safety.

The main functions of the Section are as follows:

  • Trains new recruits and evaluates them during probation.
  • Evaluates employees in critical performance areas.
  • Develops, provides, and conducts drills and classes for incumbents.
  • Develops, provides, and conducts other training programs for ongoing professional development.
  • Serves as a resource for District training needs.
  • Protects and promotes employee safety.
  • Participates in the "Return to Work" program.

The Training and Education Section is under the direction of Training Chief Pete Marshall. The staff consists of one 40- hour week Training Captain; three shift Training Captains, an Advanced-Level Secretary, Senior Clerk; Audio-Video development personnel, and a Student Worker responsible for facility and training logistical support.
