Is the PSTC closed?

The PSTC is operating in a similar fashion to the Santa Maria campus. The PSTC facility is currently being utilized by our public safety partners and our Law Enforcement, Fire and EMS Academy students. Online course offerings are not impacted by this current situation and are proceeding this spring as usual.  If you have any questions, please call 805-735-3366, ext. 5800 for the Director, Dave Whitham; or ext. 5346 for the Coordinator, Denise Baldwin.
