MBIT and Bucks County Community College are collaborating to give Public Safety high school students the opportunity to become professionally certified Fire Inspectors. This certification will help Public Safety students have an edge over competition when applying for employment. Upon completion of a written exam and skill station assessments, the students will have earned a Fire Inspector I Professional Certification in accordance with the ProBoard Accreditation. If students choose to continue on with their certification to Fire Inspection II, they can earn college credits for the courses.
Students who enroll in the Public Safety Program at MBIT have four careers in broad public safety areas, which include law enforcement, fires science, emergency medical services, and security. Some of the industry recognized certifications that many students receive include Emergency Medical Technician, Management of Aggressive Behavior, First Aid in the Workplace, Practical and Tactical Handcuffing, Oleoresin Capsicum Aerosol Training, Personal Protection Baton Tactics, Hazardous Materials Awareness, Hazardous Materials Operations, CPR/AED for Healthcare Providers, and Emergency Management Institute NIMS IS (100, 200, 700, & 800).
