LANSING COMMUNITY COLLEGE

 

CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Fire Science Technology

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0123  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

This degree program provides students with three options to pursue a fire service career area. The first option, or subchoice, provides an individual with the flexibility to continue their educational process to a four-year fire science program. The National Fire Academy's intent is to align all two-year degree granting fire science programs with institutions that provide a four-year fire science degree. The second option follows a general fire service career path and meets the state standards of the Michigan Fire Fighter Training Council's Fire Fighter I and II certification process. This option consists of selective admissions to the Regional Fire Training Center at Lansing Community College. The third option enhances the promotional opportunities for the veteran fire service employee. Courses provide a versatile approach to fire service management. Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

 

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
