The Fire & Safety Studies Diploma builds on the learning you have obtained in either the Fire Officer Certificate Program or the Fire Prevention Officer Certificate to assist you in achieving your career goals. If you would like to further your career in the fire service then you recognize the need to obtain higher level academic credentials. This diploma effectively prepares students to assume more senior officer positions.

In addition, students who meet the admission requirements and successfully complete the Fire and Safety Studies Diploma (FSSD) will have earned 60 credits toward the Bachelor of Public Safety Administration and will be eligible to enter into Year 3 of the degree if they choose to continue their studies.
