Fire Technology and Administration (HF05)


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Certificates

The program in Fire Technology and Administration is designed to provide advanced training and education that develops competent leaders in fire protection, prevention, and administration. It also provides training and education for personnel of insurance companies and of industries involved in fire prevention and protection practices.

Working in career and volunteer fire departments, local, state and federal government agencies, industry, architectural and construction firms, insurance organizations, and related groups, the fire technologist knows the need for fire prevention activities, the necessity to educate both children and adults in fire safety, and the importance of enforcing fire prevention codes. Because of the broad spectrum of problems encountered and the need for extensive familiarity with many subjects, the work of the fire technologist is seldom routine or boring. There is always something new to learn. However, the greatest satisfaction may come from knowing that the effective fire technologist continually improves the world in which we live by making it a safer place.

The program of study which leads to the associate in science degree in Fire Technology and Administration is planned to help students meet the professional standards established by the National Fire Protection Association, the Connecticut Commission on Fire Prevention and Control, and the Connecticut Fire Marshal’s Training Council.

General Education Core course listings and definitions appear on General Education Core . Placement testing will determine the sequencing of courses. Additional courses may be required.
