The program is designed to provide you with the training required to be certified as Fire Officer I (certificate/degree) and Fire Officer II (degree program only) or with opportunities to increase your job competence as an employed firefighter. Your associate's degree can give you preference points for entry into the paid sector of the fire service, or qualify you for pay incentives.

Where you’ll go:
Firefighters will always be in need in city and county departments; you may also work for departments in federal and state installations, including airports. Progress to higher-level positions with training in the most advanced firefighting equipment and techniques; building construction; emergency medical technology; management and budgeting procedures; labor relations; and other areas.
