Fire Protection Technology, Certificate
Certificate in Fire Protection Technology (223001C)
Fire continues to be a problem in the United States even though the loss of lives is declining due to new, innovative public education programs, rigorous enforcement of building and fire code enforcement and the application of advanced technology related to fire detection and suppression systems. However, with the loss of civilian lives ranging from 4,050 to 4,440 each year and property loss continuing to escalate, the need for well-educated firefighters becomes more important as community resources are reallocated. The Fire Protection Technology certificate will assist the student in acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to function effectively as a fire protection specialist.
This certificate may be earned independent of earning a degree.
