Fire Service Management Education

Our programs provide insight into key issues of today’s fire service, expanding participants’ overall knowledge. They supplement and complement participants’ technical training and encourage leadership among all participants whether you are a new firefighter or a senior officer. Each course helps participants to develop critical thinking and writing skills that help them perform their job more effectively.

The programs are at a distance offering courses online. Students can study while remaining in their regular work environment and apply new skills and theories as they are acquired. Fire departments that might not have staffing levels or budgets to support leaves of absence can still participate in training opportunities.

Many participants relate their assignments to their fire department, choosing to draw on real-life examples. The assignments are evaluated by our instructors who are experts in their fields, which include fire officials, university professors, and other professionals such as lawyers, engineers and emergency physicians.
