Online Fire Science Program Named Top 10 in the Country

John Wood Community College’s online Fire Science program was recently ranked in the Top 10 in the country by OnlineAssociatesDegrees.net.  The site’s mission is to provide expert guidance and real-world information about online associate’s degrees to anyone wishing to find the best convenient two-year learning solution.

 Rankings were based on tuition cost, class format flexibility, content specializations and accreditation.  The ranking noted that JWCC has been a pioneer in distance education for fire science since 2001 and provides online students access to hands-on training on location.  JWCC’s foundational and specialized courses in Fire Service Management, Incident Management for the First Responder, Fire Prevention Principles and Fire and Emergency Law also factored into the ranking.

 

JWCC’s Fire Science Program helps prepare students for entry-level fire science careers and also caters to individuals currently employed in the fire service field who are seeking additional training. JWCC now offers Fire Officer level courses online. JWCC’s training is closely coordinated with the State of Illinois Fire Marshal’s Office, to ensure up-to-date course content.
