Note:

The Department of Education Statewide Course Numbering System uses the FFP prefix to indicate these courses within the Fire Science Curriculum. The first number indicates the level, either freshmen (1) or sophomore (2), and the last three numbers indicate the course topic. Due to the variety of courses offered throughout the state, it should be noted that courses with the same last three numbers are the same course, contain the same course content and contact hours regardless of the first leveling number.
