Fire Protection Degrees: Nevada Career Colleges

Career College: Nevada Fire Protection Programs

Looking for accredited career colleges, technical schools, and universities in Nevada offering Fire Protection degrees. Although firefighters are trained by their employing agencies, a college degree in fire protection, emergency management or public safety may be required or desirable for hiring.

The experience you are likely to have going to college in Nevada is as widely varied as the state itself. The mining towns of Eastern Nevada, such as Battle Mountain, Winnemucca and Elko, offer career experience in the resource extraction industry. Then there are the gambling towns of Reno and Las Vegas, which could not be more different from one another. Despite the widespread casinos and their associated nightlife, Reno is an established city with a real down-home feel. Reno has strong community organizations, and a small but hardy arts scene. Las Vegas is, to some, the Eighth Wonder of the World. This is a 24-hour city with world-class opportunities in the fields of entertainment and hospitality. Or perhaps you will be drawn to the serene desert life in the largely empty parts of Nevada between these cities.
