Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Curriculum Programs of Study A-Z

The Fire Protection Management Certificate is a 15-hour concentration under the curriculum title of Fire Protection Technology that has been specifically designed to prepare firefighters for mid-level management positions within the fire service. It provides professional development and career enhancement opportunities for those currently employed as well as those newly entering into fire service careers.

Completion of the certificate will prepare currently-employed students for promotion to or beyond the supervisory level and will be especially beneficial in those agencies requiring the certificate for promotion to certain levels. Courses taken toward completion of the certificate apply toward both the diploma, as well as to the Fire Protection Technology Associate in Applied Science degree.

Course work includes a writing course (ENG 111 ) and four FIP courses: Local Government Finance, Fire Service Supervision, Fire Service Personnel Administration, Fire Fighting Strategies.

Students entering for the certificate options are required to meet the same criteria for the diploma and the Fire Protection Technology associate’s degree.
