    Degrees at a Distance
    The Degrees at a Distance Program (DDP) is a certificate program of 13 fire-related, upper division courses recognized by the National Fire Academy (NFA). Members of the fire service may choose to take any number of these courses to enhance their professional growth, and the NFA will award certificates for successful completion. The certificates meet the national fire service and training standards established by the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Fire Academy and the Department of Homeland Security.
    For fire service personnel who would like to take one or more of these courses, and at the same time work toward completing a bachelor’s degree at WIU, the degree associated with the DDP is the Bachelor of Arts in General Studies. The NFA has an agreement with WIU’s General Studies degree to provide undergraduate certifications in:
    Fire Administration and Management
    Fire Prevention Technology
    Through completion of one of the certificates, firefighters will be able to focus their General Studies degree in a fire-related academic area and have the certificate posted on their academic transcripts.

    Not sure if you're looking for fire-related online courses or online education in general. One of the best sites to research online degrees and certificates is http://www.geteducated.com. This site lists lists just about every offering from public and private universities and doesn't just return information that a for-profit organization paid to have listed.

    I typed in "fire" and it returned 3 different institutions offering certificates through Masters degrees related to firefighting.

    Another great source of information on online education is http://www.degreeinfo.com. They have active forums with folks that can provide great advice on info on online programs.

    Tigg, I think you were taking offence to Firemedic 61's signature line. I dont think that it was directed at you.

    If you are still looking for online classes check out St Pete College. They have on-line fire classes and you pay in state tuition.

    stay safe,

    LMAO. That's great man. I don't think I've ever seen a signature misinterpreted!
