TREASURE COAST -- Indian River State College Fire Science program has been ranked as offering "Fire Science Degree Programs That Really Pay Off." According to Fire Science Online College Rankings, IRSC is one of ninety colleges and universities nationally that offer great returns-on-investment. Research shows that students want to enroll in Fire Science programs at schools that make them a high-caliber firefighter, which leads to a career that pays well. An IRSC Fire Science Degree graduate, who becomes a full-time firefighter, will earn $56,330 annually, five times the cost of one year of school.

Indian River State College offers two tracks for students to obtain an Associate in Science Degree in Fire Science Technology. IRSC's two-year Fire Science degree program prepares students for a professional career and enhances training and skills for those already in the field.

IRSC's Fire Science Academy Track provides students an opportunity to obtain a two-year A.S. Degree in Fire Science Technology and complete the Basic Fire Recruit Academy and the Emergency Medical Technology programs. Graduates in this program are highly trained, disciplined and educated recruits and are well prepared for employment opportunities.

In addition, IRSC offers the Fire Basic Recruit Academy that meets the minimum educational requirements to prepare students as a certified combat firefighter in the State of Florida. Upon successful completion, students are eligible to take the State written and practical examination administered by the Bureau of Fire Standards and Training.
