Fire Science program receives national recognition
Columbus State’s Fire Science program has been awarded recognition by the National Fire Academy (NFA) in acknowledgement of their success in meeting the standards of excellence established by professional Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) development committees.
FESHE is a national model curriculum of fire-related courses for colleges and universities to adopt as their own. All of the courses share common titles, catalog descriptions, outlines and content which provide a national core of knowledge and competencies delivered by the FESHE programs. These course outlines share common content through FESHE’s partnership with commercial publishers who write textbooks and faculty supplements that support them.
The FESHE program also allows a seamless transfer of a student’s AAS degree classes into a FESHE Bachelors curriculum program.
The Staff Advisory Council will offer their monthly Brown Bag Lunch on Wednesday, April 30, at noon, in the Center for Workforce Development, room 011. The session will be “Spring Fever: Preparing for Warm Weather,” presented by Nichole Bowman-Glover, Wellness coordinator. She will share some ideas for fun physical activity as the weather gets warmer. Bring your own ideas to share, too.
