Fire Service Technology Certificate Training Offered by Greenville Technical College

Posted by Margaret Lamb - On November 05, 2009 (EST)

Greenville Technical College now offers a certificate in Fire Service Technology, providing students with the skills and knowledge needed to become a basic firefighter. This program takes students through National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1001 Firefighter II level. It provides all the elements of NFPA Firefighter I and II including basic first aid, CPR, incident command, fire behavior and rescue. Upon successful completion, students may apply to sit for the IFSAC Firefighter I and II certification exam. The Advanced Certificate serves as a bridge between the Fire Service Technology certificate and the Associate’s degree program in Fire Science, the first such degree offered in the area. The college is working with other schools in the state interested in replicating the program. An Associate degree program transferable throughout the college is currently under development.
