Fire Science/Criminal Justice/EMT – Associate Degree
About the Program
Students who train with the South Carolina Fire Academy or National Fire Academy can now use that experience toward a degree from OCtech!
This is the perfect opportunity for volunteer firefighters and public safety officers to expand their knowledge and earn an Associate Degree in Applied Science in General Technology with a primary specialty in Fire Science/Emergency Medical Technician and secondary specialty in Criminal Justice.
The college will award exemption credit for training sponsored and conducted by the S.C. Fire Academy (official Fire Academy transcripts required).
Students must complete the equivalent of 10 semester credit hours of South Carolina Fire Academy (SCFA), or National Fire Academy.
OCtech has approved articulation agreements for this program with USC’s Palmetto College and Columbia College.
