Fire Science: AAS

Fire Science StudentUmpqua Community College offers you two alternatives in the associate degree program in Fire Science.

  • First, the degree prepares you to qualify for the specialized demands of a highly diversified and technological society, and thereby gain employment as a firefighter as a result of the training.
  • Second, it provides the first two years of a four-year degree in Fire Science Administration at Western Oregon State or Eastern Oregon State.

For current program requirements, you are strongly urged to consult with the department or an adviser.

To obtain an AAS degree in Fire Science, 93 credits are required: 71 credits in Fire Science and 22 credits in General Education. Due to continually changing laws and regulations mandated by Oregon’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OR-OSHA), DPSST, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), students may be required to add, modify, or delete courses and/or hours to the curriculum to meet current standards. See your advisor for current requirements. All courses require a grade of C or better.

Careers

Upon completion of the program, you will be ready to test or complete the requirements of the National Fire Protection Association Firefighter 1 standards and the requirements of Oregon’s Department of Public Safety Standards and Training, National Fire Protection Association 1001-5.1.1 - 6.5.4, NFPA 10 Annex “D”, NFPA 1021 2-1.
