Fire Fighter Technology AAS Degree

Recognizing the need for more highly skilled fire fighters, many municipalities now require additional education for their employees. The curriculum developed for the associate in applied science degree program combines lecture with hands-on activities to prepare the student to respond to a variety of emergencies. Specialists in the field provide valuable input on both content and methodology.

The Fire Fighter 1 and 2 courses cover content that is identical to the Fire Academy course, but in a part-time format.  Therefore two sample schedules are offered below.

Students who satisfactorily complete all college and program requirements qualify for an associate in applied science degree.
