PRESQUE ISLE – Northern Maine Technical College may offer a fire science technology degree program in the fall. The program will be sponsored jointly by NMTC and Southern Maine Technical College.
To determine whether there is enough interest in the community for such a program, the college will hold an informational meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, in the Reed Commons Function Room. Aroostook County firefighters and others who may be interested in the program are encouraged to attend.
During the meeting, SMTC fire science personnel will be introduced, program costs and scholarship opportunities will be discussed, and the fall schedule of courses will be presented. This associate degree program is composed of both fire technology and general education courses.
