The fire/rescue training program offers classes at no cost to Kentucky volunteer fire departments, volunteer rescue squads, volunteer ambulance services, and members of paid departments who have written mutual aid agreements with volunteer departments across the Commonwealth. If a student wishes to pursue a diploma from the Fire/Rescue Curriculum, he/she will be given credit for training taken as a volunteer firefighter from technical college instructors. The specific course requirements for the associate degree, diplomas, and certificates are available from the Fire/Rescue Training Coordinators. Students who seek an associate degree or diploma must enroll in a technical college and pay the required fees for registration and core classes. See program checklists for more information.
