Minimum Fire Standards Program - Firefighter I and II
Minimum Fire Standards
With lectures and practical applications that exceed the state of Florida's course-hour requirements, Seminole State's Minimum Fire Standards Program readies students to enter careers as state-certified firefighters. Students receive in-depth, hands-on instruction about the varying duties firefighters perform, including fire department communications, basic building construction and live fire training.

Their jobs encompass a broad spectrum of tasks, ranging from extinguishing fires, to administering emergency medical care and educating the public. Our graduates are consistently able to perform these duties in a prompt, dependable and safe manner, which has earned Seminole State a reputation for housing one of the best Minimum Fire Standards programs in the state.
