Hillsborough Community College provides courses to prepare firefighters to take various certification exams.  Based on the certification you are interested in obtaining, Hillsborough Community College may offer all or at least most of the courses you will need.  In the left column, you will find additional information on the various types of certifications.


In years past, the Florida State Fire College would provide exam schedules and send examiners around the state to administer certification exams.  Through modern technology, this process has changed.  Students apply to the Florida State Fire College to take exams through the FCDICE website.  Computer based testing is conducted through the contracted services of Pearson VUE who has several locations in Central Florida where applicants can go during operational hours and take the exam.  Click on this link to go to Pearson VUE's website.
