Middle Bucks Institute of Technology partners with BCCC to Certify Public Safety Students with new Certifications!

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).
