The Fire Service Technology program is designed to develop and upgrade the firefighting skills and knowledge of volunteer and paid firefighters through high-quality training and educational programs.
The FST courses meet most fire agencies’ minimum qualifications for employment in the region and are offered on and off campus through collaborative agreements with local fire departments. Instructors from local fire departments also help instruct in the program. The program will provide the students with exceptional classroom instruction and hands-on training assuring students master the skills necessary for the fire service.
The curriculum is based on the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards, the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) requirements, and the National Fire Academy’s (FESHE) Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education Model.
