Introduction to Fire and Rescue Services~(Online)
Wednesday, July 01, 2009 - Wednesday, June 30, 2010

United States

This class is a general overview of the fire service and will provide a great foundation of information as you continue on with your fire education. Most people take this class for one of two reasons. First, is to learn about the fire service. And second, because it is a requirement for those not affiliated with a fire department but want to acquire Utah State Fire Certifications (usually to pursue full-time employment with a fire department). For those students that continue through our program, we will build upon this material in your future BATC fire classes.

This course will introduce you to the many components of the modern fire department’s responsibilities, including: fire suppression, prevention, public education, emergency medical service, hazardous materials response, and urban search and rescue. Throughout this course, safety and professionalism are stressed. Other concepts emphasized are incident effectiveness, customer service, physical fitness, training, and fire prevention.

Many fire service classes involve "hands-on" experiences during the class to teach the many skills needed. However, this class is not one of those. This course is approximately 90 hours. The entire class will be done online. You will progress at your own pace. Once you have been given access to the course by registering, you will have 135 days to complete this course.

The comprehensive final exam must be taken in the Assessment Center on the main campus of Bridgerland Applied Technology College (Logan, Utah). You may schedule your final exam appointment by contacting the assessment Center at (435)750-3188. The times for testing are: Monday-Thursday at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., and Friday at 9 a.m. You will need to bring your photo ID or you will not be allowed to take the exam. If you live a significant distance (greater than 100 miles) from the Logan campus you may arrange to take your final exam through an approved proctor.
