Fire Science Program
Beyond any other profession, firefighting exemplifies responsibility and courage. The desire to work in this profession is fueled by a value of life and an instinct to protect it. The Fire Science offerings at Columbia Basin College (CBC) assist students in beginning or propelling a career in fire service. By building new skills and strengthening those that already exist, an education at CBC better prepares students to protect their community while giving them an edge in the well-respected, well-compensated career fields.
CBC offers an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in Fire Science. Students enrolled in the Fire Science program complete general education courses in the field of fire science. In addition, students are exposed to courses in:
- Fire administration
- Hazardous materials
- And more!
Please contact one of the Health Sciences advisors for more program information and academic planning for the Fire Science program. The advisors are Leida Arciniega and Zachary Hawks. Their contact information is on the Faculty & Advisors tab.
Please take the time to attend one of the Fire Science or Paramedic information sessions. Questions will be answered by an Advisor/Counselor or a program representative. Anyone interested in a CBC Health Sciences program should attend. These sessions are free and open to the public. Students, friends and family members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
