CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Fire Science/Basic EMT

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 1057  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

This degree curriculum is for students who wish to combine fire service and emergency medical service education and training into a single degree program. This degree choice will expedite the career path of those students interested in a career within public or private agencies that require credentials in both the fire and emergency medical services fields. Students will complete certifications for Fire Fighter I & II, Basic Emergency Medical Technician, Hazardous Materials Awareness, and Hazardous Materials Operations. The fire science segment meets the state standards of the Michigan Fire Fighter Training Council's Fire Fighter I and II certification process and consists of selective admissions to the Regional Fire Training Center at Lansing Community College. Basic EMT courses are approved by the Michigan Department of Consumer and Industry Services. An EMT Academy option is available to students. State licensing for EMTs is required. 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.
