Waldorf College's fire science administration program receives recognition

Waldorf College

Waldorf College’s bachelor of science in fire science administration has been named a Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE)-recognized program.

“By meeting the standards of excellence established by the U.S. Fire Administration, Waldorf’s fire science administration program was awarded FESHE-recognition,” explained Waldorf’s Director of Online Learning Laura Friesenborg.

Formed by the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Fire Academy, FESHE is a network of emergency services-related education and training providers. According to its website, the group seeks to create unified and national curriculum for firefighting and EMS professionals “from which current and future leaders can learn and advocate critical leadership.”

“Providing quality education in order to better prepare fire fighters for safety in the line of duty is central to FESHE,” added Friesenborg.

To be recognized, schools must be regionally accredited, teach the FESHE core curricula, and submit student course completion documentation.

Waldorf College’s fire science administration bachelor degree is one of two FESHE-recognized programs in Iowa and is offered both on campus in Forest City and online.
