Program Details

A career as a first responder can provide individuals with the opportunity to help those in need in their daily lives.  Wayne Community College's Associate of Applied Science program in Emergency Preparedness Technology provides students with the foundation of technical and managerial skills needed for success in this field.  Students are taught various aspects of law enforcement, fire protection, emergency medical services, and emergency planning.  The curriculum contains a wide range of range of class styles including lectures, discussions, labs, and cooperative work experiences.  Other topics covered include codes and standards for safety, investigative principles, hazardous materials, emergency agency operations, and financial considerations.

This program consists of 65 credit hours which can be completed in two distinct formats.  Busy individuals can take advantage of the fully online format option, which provides them with the opportunity to complete coursework while still honoring important family, job, and community responsibilities.  For those who prefer face-to-face instruction, a more traditional format is offered which consists of day and evening classes.  Class sizes for this major are relatively small, with the average class being made up of just fifteen to thirty students.  Graduates have the potential to work in a variety of emergency response organizations, such as fire/rescue agencies, fire marshal offices, law enforcement, ambulance service providers, emergency medical services, industrial firms, educational institutions, and other government agencies.  Wayne Community College provides students with a convenient, cost-efficient vehicle to a career in the field of Emergency Preparedness.
