  • The Emergency and Fire Management Services major at ATA allows students to complete the South Carolina Fire Academy Firefighter I and Firefighter II courses.  By passing the IFSAC certification test for these classes, students are eligible to become either volunteer or career firefighters in South Carolina and other states as well.  Depending on the department, students will either be eligible to work directly after graduation, or will shorten their time in recruit school.  Students in this program will also study Emergency Medical Responder skills and become certified in CPR.
