We Proudly Promote Our Recycling Program

DA - recycle

We have teamed with Great Western Supply Co., City Carton Recycling, and SCA Tissue to become a closed loop location. The term “closed loop” describes the process in which post-consumer waste materials are converted into new products to be re-used by the original source. In this case, shredded office paper, boxes, and old newspapers and magazines are recycled and returned in the form of paper towels and bathroom tissue.

Computer Rooms

The Davenport location has 3 computer labs, each of which can accommodate approximately 25 students. Students are free to use the labs any time the location is open, as long as they are not being used for classes. In addition, the library and the Academic Success Center have computers for student use.

Program-Specific Labs

Firearms Training Room 

The atmosphere of the room offers a great simulation of actual police interaction with the public, including flashing lights, the sound of firearms, verbal interactions with the public, and the verbal commands from the officer during training. The training room has a ceiling-mounted FATS machine with a 16’ x 8’ screen. There are two Glock 17 handgun simulators and two OC spray simulators, as well as a portable speaker system, a police rooftop flashers unit, and CO2 tanks for the guns (to provide life-like recoil). The room is capable of training up to 15 people at a time.

Medical Facilities 

Our medical labs have the tools you need to gain hands-on experience in clinical procedures commonly performed in medical offices. Purdue Global's medical assisting program has clinical laboratories, and our simulated patient examining areas include:

  • Examination tables and equipment
