This memo is to notify you that an updated version of the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) Fire Course “Blue Sheet,” dated July 1, 2022, is attached and available online via this link:
https://www.nccommunitycolleges.edu/workforce-continuing-education/public-safety (Note: Scroll down to the “College Resources” section of the NCCCS Public Safety Training page)
The NCCCS Blue Sheet is provided to colleges as a handy reference of courses with the following prefixes:
- FIP – Fire and Rescue
- WLF – Wildland Fire
- EPT – Emergency Management
- EME – Emergency Services
The Blue Sheet, which is updated periodically, is provided by the NCCCS Public Safety Training Team for training purposes and general guidance only. The official sources for state certification information are the associated state agencies listed in the Blue Sheet. The official source for NCCCS course information is the Combined Course Library (CCL) found at http://www.nccommunitycolleges.edu/academicprograms/combined-course-library.
If information in the Blue Sheet contradicts information from the
agency, board, or commission that regulates the course, assume that the information from the external agency has jurisdiction and is the authority. If discrepancies are found, please notify me at [email protected].
As always, please direct specific questions about NC Fire and Rescue certifications to your North Carolina Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) regional specialists. Questions about community college policies and procedures that support fire and rescue certification and non-certification training should be addressed to
Kenny Weatherington, Fire and Rescue/Emergency Management Training Specialist, at (919) 291-6341 or [email protected].
We hope you find this reference helpful and will share on your campus, as appropriate. Thank you.
