Fire Service Management—About the Program

This degree prepares current fire fighters for future leadership positions in the fire service. Completing the core courses for the degree helps firefighters meet eligibility requirements for certification as a Fire Officer 1 and a Fire Officer 2 through the Illinois State Fire Marshal's Office.

Proficiency Credit allows a Moraine Valley student to received credit for vocational, noncredit training for which certificates have been earned.

Process for obtaining credit: 

  1. Schedule a meeting with Academic Outreach located in Building B, Room B260.
  2. You will receive an overview of the proficiency credit process, facilitate preparation of required forms, and assign a Fire Service Management faculty member to review the request.
  3. Students seeking college credit through the Proficiency Credit process must be a registered student at Moraine Valley Community College.
  4. Students pay a fee for each course posted to their transcript. The current fee is $25, subject to change.
  5. Letter grades such as "A," "B," etc. are not assigned. Instead "P" for pass is assigned. Grade point averages are not affected by this grade.

The process is not immediate, but does take some time. Planning ahead is encouraged.

It is recommended that students meet with an Academic Advisor. To set an appointment, call (708) 974-5721.

This degree prepares current firefighters for future leadership positions in the fire service.
