More Fire Protection Technology WelcomeFire protection may be taken for granted, but SCC knows the importance of training individuals for exciting careers in the fire protection industry.OverviewWelcome to SCC’s Fire Protection Technology program. We provide training and skills professionals need to face the constantly changing world of the fire protection industry. Fire service and related industries provide education about, prevention of, and suppression of fire for their communities. These industries also are involved in providing emergency medical care, specialized and technical rescue, response to terrorist attacks, and mitigation of hazardous materials releases. They also provide investigative services to determine the cause of fires and the costs to restore property after a fire has occurred. Trained professionals are needed to meet higher entry-level qualifications. They also need opportunities to increase their knowledge to prepare to accept greater responsibility and to meet the expectation of the general public. Students are on campus participating in lecture/lab courses throughout the 18-24-month program. All tuition, fees, books, firefighting gloves, hood, safety glasses, and uniform are the responsibility of the student. Firefighting protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus are provided for student use while in the program. The program is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.MissionThe mission of the Fire Protection Technology program is to prepare students for entry into the fire service industry and to provide professional development for those already serving within the industry.Starting TermsAll Quarters.Fire Protection Technology-AASCurriculumPROGRAM CLASSESTake the followingFIRE-1100 Prin of Emergency ServicesFIRE-1211 Structural Firefighter IAFIRE-1212 Structural Firefighter IBFIRE-1220 Structural Firefighter IIFIRE-1230 Structural Firefighting OprtnsFIRE-1311 Hazard Materials Ops IFIRE-1312 Hazardous Materials Ops IIFIRE-2110 Fire Behavior & CombustionFIRE-2120 Bldg Constrct/Fire ProtectionFIRE-2140 Fire Protection SystemsFIRE-2510 Fire Inspector IFIRE-2150 Fire/Emer Srvc Safety & SurvivFIRE-2520 Fire & Life Safety EducatorEMTL-1301 EMT Part IEMTL-1302 EMT IIELECTIVESTake a minimum of 4.5 credits from the followning.FIRE-1240 Fireground Survival/Rapid InteFIRE-1410 Wildland Firefighter Type IIFIRE-2220 Fire Protect Hydral/Wtr SupplyFIRE-2310 Hazardous Materials TechnicianFIRE-2900 Fire Protection InternshipFIRE-2230 Fire Investigation IFIRE-2410 Fire Apparatus Dvr Op - PumperFIRE-2999 Individual Special ProjectsGENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTSTake 1 Course From SPCH-1090 OR SPCH-1110 OR SPCH-2810;SPCH-1090 Fund of Human CommunicationsSPCH-1110 Public SpeakingSPCH-2810 Business & Professional CommunTAKE 1 COURSE FROM ENGL-1010 OR ENGL-1015;ENGL-1010 Composition IENGL-1015 Composition & LiteratureComplete 1 Math class and 1 Social Science class.
