Fire Science - Prior Learning Assessment

What is a Prior Learning Assessment?

Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) is the process of awarding college credit for learning that has taken place away from the college classroom.

Everett Community College's Fire Science Program will allow up to 22 college level credits for successful completion of a Washington state accredited Fire Fighter Training Academy or a Washington state accredited Emergency Medical Technician Course.

These 22 credits will be applied to EvCC's  Associate in Applied Science - Transfer (AAS-T) degree curriculum.
