Penn Foster Fire Science degree
I noticed IAFF is promoting Penn Foster who offers an online fire science degree. I currently am a full-time firefighter with ff2 and emt-b. It's been a goal of mine to obtain a AS degree in fire science. I went to a community college about 5 years ago and got through a little over 2 semesters into fire science until i stopped pursuing. Does anyone has any experience with Penn Foster? I've been looking at reviews but i figured this would be the best place for my research. I figure if IAFF is backing PF that it can't be too bad of a school.
Penn Foster Fire Science IAFF
The IAFF/Penn Foster program has a direct articulation agreement with the National Labor College in Silver Spring MD to enter their BA in Emergency Management / Response upon completion of the Fire Science Degree. The National Labor College is an accredited degree granting institution through Middle States. The NLC degree is 100% legit and accepted as a "Regionally Accredited" degree program. The AS in Fire Science was developed as a partnership between the NLC, IAFF, and Penn Foster as a bridge from AS to Bachelor level education for the IAFF's union members. If you have any questions let me know, I was a student at the NLC during the development of both programs.
