Career InformationPeople who do well in the Fire Service typically include those who prefer to work with their hands rather than from behind a desk; those who enjoy solving challenging situations; those who enjoy team projects and camaraderie; adrenaline junkies; and those who feel well rewarded simply by helping others.
What Will I Learn The PCC Fire Science Technology program offers courses for both those who are interested in beginning a career in fire fighting and for those who are already firefighters wanting to further their career. We offer two programs - one in structural fire fighting and one in Wildland fire fighting.

THC (marijuana) is part of the required 10-panel drug screen prior to admittance into any Health Professions or Public Safety program at PCC. The passage of Amendment 64 in the State of Colorado, does not overrule Federal law, which states this is still an illegal substance. Students testing positive for THC (marijuana) will not be allowed entrance or re-entrance into a Health or Public Safety program.
