    I'm enrolled in Pikes Peak. It's all been online and I've done general studies classes as well as fire science classes through them. Overall I have liked the program and have learned alot. Important to remember though you get out of it what you put into it just like any other college.

    Default KVCC Fire Science Program

    Like SKcfa1523 pointed out about KVCC's Fire Science Program in Kalamazoo Michigan, it is one of the areas more popular institutions to receive your degree in fire science.

    A few years ago, they revamped the program to make it more marketable for those who wanted to have a career in the fire service or for those already active to seek out their degree.

    The current program is setup so that if you have your Firefighter I & II (State of Michigan) and your EMT Basic then you have 1/2 the total credits for the degree.

    Nice to have 32 credits disappear with those two certifications. The fire academy is held at our Firehouse # 2 which is a partnership with Oshtemo Fire Department and KVCC.

    I am one of the instructors for the academy and I will say that the students have an excellent program ahead of them.

    Hello Sir, I have a few questions about this program. I am in my second week at Keiser and enjoying it. I was wondering do or did you recieve credit for any fire science course you have taken previously? IS IT ACCREDITED? Also about how long did it take you to complete the program? Thanks for your time!

    You are enrolled, taking classes, and are now looking to see if the school is accredited??? The admissions office should have already evaluated any previous college level classes and awarded credit, if any.

    Default The STUDENT is responsible for due diligence

    TD:

    Thanks for posting on firehouse.com. I am glad you are enjoying your experience at Keiser College.

    It is ultimately your responsibility to get the answers for these questions.

    Accreditation status:
    start here: http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/Search.asp

    You will find eight listings for Keiser. Pick your school. The best value is if your school has regional academic accreditation. For Florida schools it is the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges, Commission on Colleges.

    Credit from prior fire science courses:

    You should have recieved a "program of study" or similar document from the college that tells you what you need to complete in order to get your degree. You need to contact the academic affairs or counseling office to obtain more information.

    Univ. of Cincinnati has an excellent AAS and BS program. They even offer some mini-courses throughout the year. You can knock out a one semester course in a week. I got my BS degree from them, I highly recommend them if you are looking to a Bachelor level program.
