About the Program In order for you to be enrolled in the fire fighting courses, you must be affiliated with fire services that are able to procure fire gear to use in training. This includes complete turnout gear, helmet, and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a mask.
This program is designed to provide an interdisciplinary approach for individuals already working in the field and those interested in pursuing career opportunities in public safety, which includes emergency medical services (EMS), firefighting, emergency management, dispatching/communications, leadership/management, and public safety education. The student will interact with others in the Public Safety discipline as well as those with similar missions to understand how these components function as a whole in an “all-hazards” approach to public safety. Prospective students should be aware that a MN Human Services background study with no restrictions may be required for employment.
