The Fire Technology curriculum is planned to serve both as an in-service program and as a pre-employment two-year program for community college students aspiring to enter the field of firefighting. Fire Technology majors may be required to fulfill a tour of duty at a local fire station. The suggested course sequence has been supplied to the Counseling Division by the Instructional Division. Students are urged to use the recommended course sequence outline along with the Shasta College catalog. Particular attention should be paid to course prerequisites and to whether a class is taught Fall or Spring semester or both. Courses listed may be offered either spring or fall semesters, or at the discretion of the division.  

This degree is approved through the California Community College Chancellor’s Office. Upon satisfactory completion of all degree requirements and filing an application for graduation with Admissions and Records, the student’s transcript will reflect completion of this degree.  

Upon successful completion of this degree, the student should be able to possess the necessary skills, knowledge and abilities to enter the fire service or to increase skills, knowledge and abilities for those already employed as a firefighter.
