The Fire Protection Technology Program (FPT) is designed for individuals who wish to enter the fire service or for experienced firefighters who wish to study and improve their job performance. It also enables experienced firefighters to prepare for higher level positions in the fire science field.

Firefighting is one of the worlds most honored, but hazardous occupations. It is the duty of every fire department to save lives and reduce injuries and property loss. By becoming a firefighter, people join an organization rich in a heritage of dedication, unselfish sacrifice and inspired human action.
