Established in 2002, the Fire Officer Certificate Program provides a structured delivery of curriculum and academic rigor for individuals who wish to further their professional development without the time and expense of traditional college classes. This program has been developed and evaluated to ensure it provides knowledge and information regarding the responsibilities expected for current or aspiring company officers. Two-thirds of the required courses are approved by the American Council on Education and meet their standards for academic credit hours. These approved courses may be transferable at your local educational institute pending their approval.
Recently MU FRTI has made significant updates and requirements to the Fire Officer Certificate Program to accommodate the needs of today’s company officers. Please find details on what to expect in the updated program listed below.
