These classes were developed to prepare students academically for these roles, and to help them succeed when required to take written certification examinations. Each course is eight weeks long, and involves weekly written assignments, quizzes, and tests. Class Discussions dealing with real-world personnel issues offer students the opportunity to present their ideas on how to properly handle these incidents, based on applicable laws and regulations.
The courses were developed by fire service leaders, along with Colorado State University, and have been very successful preparing students for the written certification process with a 90% + pass rate reported back to the program. These classes are presented entirely online and are asynchronous. You can complete the work on your schedule from anywhere that has access to the internet.
Fire Officer II courses (FESA 441 & FESA 442) run in the spring term and Fire Officer I courses (FESA 341 & 342) run in the fall term.
