Ignite Your Fire
The Fire Science Program at Mount Wachusett Community College is based on a model curriculum established by the National Fire Academy. This model establishes a Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) network of emergency services related education and training providers. Fire service members and those aspiring to become members will be able to learn and advocate critical leadership and fire safety principles. These leaders will reduce loss of life and property from fire and other hazards. The National Fire Academy will issue certificates to those students completing core courses of the Associates Degree curriculum. Students will also be offered opportunities for live-in shifts.
