Part-Time JIBC Pre-Employment Firefighting Program Launched

 

The JIBC Fire & Safety Division is excited to announce the introduction of a part-time offering of the Fire Fighting Technologies Certificate (FFTC) to complement our regular full-time offerings of this successful pre-employment program.

This part-time offering was developed to meet the needs of prospective students looking to obtain their NFPA 1001 firefighting certification and academic credentials while balancing their work and family commitments at the same time.

Among the strengths of the FFTC program is the extensive hands-on, live-fire training our students receive at JIBC’s world-class training facility in Maple Ridge. Students are taught by experienced firefighters from leading Fire Departments in the Lower Mainland, each of whom mentor our students as they complete their training. Our new part-time offering maintains these essential strengths of the program that helps our graduates be employment-ready for a rewarding career in the Fire Service.

The part-time offering includes up to 12 weeks of online learning, followed by more than 200 hours of practical, hands-on training at the Maple Ridge Campus spread out over three months. It will consist of evening classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, full-day classes on select Saturdays and Sundays, and a final two-weeks of full-time live-fire training.

Please visit the FFTC website at www.jibc.ca/FFTC for details of the part-time delivery schedule.

Applications are now being accepted for students wanting to enroll in the part-time program (Class 19) scheduled to start online in June 2018 with practical training beginning in September 2018.
If you have any questions about the part-time offering, or any aspect of the FFTC program, please send an email to fftc@jibc.ca.
