The program consists of approximately one-third general education and two-thirds technical coursework, including classroom as well as technical hands-on training to enable the student to become familiar with all aspects of fire fighting from entry-level to advanced levels. Also included is an instructional area entitled-job skills. This instruction will be offered through students' local fire departments.
