Welcome to Fire Science Technology!

Pikes Peak Community College has an Associate of Applied Sciences in Fire Science Technology. I have attached the degree plan. We also award credit for prior learning for your training and certifications that meet FEMA, EMI, local, state and NFPA standards, as well as EMT-B and Paramedic certifications. This will give you a snapshot of where you might be in our program. We can also transfer in any previous college credit that is appropriate for our degree. Your college transfer classes can be brought in immediately. You will need to take 2 classes from PPCC before we do the formal credit for prior learning evaluation on your training and certifications to PPCC credit classes. By doing the quick checklist on your own you will know what classes you can take. We can also have a phone or email conversation and confirm where you should be. If you do not have any classes or certifications to transfer please give me a call and we can talk about our online and on-campus classes to get you graduated. PPCC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, North Central Association of Schools and Colleges, The Colorado Department of Higher Education, the Colorado Community College System, and Fire Science Technology is recognized by the National Fire Academy. Confirm any degree you are looking at is regionally accredited through the Higher Learning Commission.
