Joint Recruitment Process & Scholarships

Joint Recruitment Scholarship Opportunity Information

The Joint Recruitment Process is a process done by local fire agencies in and around Deschutes County.  C.O.C.C. does not have any ties to the process other than being a non-bias third party resource for the agencies participating.  The collection of applications and the distribution of test is the only involvement the college has in this process.  Decisions are strictly made by the Departments; C.O.C.C. has no influence on final decisions.  

Selection by an agency does not guarantee admittance into the college.  

Please contact John Failla, via email: or leave a detailed voice message at 541-383-7419 for joint recruitment information and questions.
