Hear about our students' experiences with online learning, the skills they gained from the FESA program, and the opportunities for career advancement that came from earning a degree.
See how earning a degree allowed Ralph to follow in his father's footsteps, climbing the ranks in one of the busiest fire departments in the country.
"I gained a focused, structured view inside the fire service, with all its moving pieces including policy, legal, HR, budget, project management, communications, etc. Because of that, I now approach my job with a more holistic understanding of the necessary web of support offered by Fire Administration. I learned the value and importance of the other players throughout the organization. FESA is a great blend of solid instruction, interesting and beneficial coursework, amazing advisors, a school with an established pedigree, and one that wouldn’t break the bank as I worked toward my degree."
"I have a better understanding of how emergency services organizations function in a "big picture" sense. The FESA program provided me with a well-rounded education pertaining to emergency services management. I feel better prepared to take on new challenges and positions within my current job. The instructors are top-notch, the program is well organized, and the online degree route is flexible for full-time workers in emergency services."
