The Fire Science Technology Program trains students for work as firefighters, fire inspectors, fire investigators, and other fire prevention-related careers. The program has learning opportunities for both students seeking to enter the workforce and for those who are already working in the field. Our instructors will evaluate your current experience level and help you build on your existing knowledge and skills. Foundational courses include Fire Prevention, Fire Hydraulics, Fire Protection Systems and more. Our graduates find employment locally, statewide, nationally and internationally. There are approximately 100 fire departments throughout southwest Missouri, providing our graduates with many opportunities to serve their communities.
The Fire Science Technology Program is accredited by the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC).
