    Default education requirements

    I am looking at taking a two year Fire Science program, but i see that i need grade 11 or 12 chemistry which i dont have. I have all the other education requirements. I was wondering what ways i can get around this (a school program or something). Or is taking grade 11 chemistry online the only option. Thanks.

    Usually the college will offer a course that will meet that prerequisite.

    Yes, you'd want to take it first semester, would be my guess.

    Get an appointment with your advisor.

    Most programs have electives. But I would check with the schools advisor as they would know more about it.
