Fire Science


The Paradise Valley Community College Fire Science Program offers many fire science courses that not only prepare the "pre-professional" for a career in the fire service, but can also provide the "professional" with the necessary education, training, skills and competencies, which are often recommended to enhance or further careers.

These courses are in the form of "Specialized Training" and/or "Professional Development". The courses are regularly offered in a specialized delivery format in order to promote flexibility. All of the courses are taught to current industry standards and by experienced fire service professionals.
