Seneca’s Fire Protection programs are a North American benchmark in providing a comprehensive fire protection education combining the best aspects of both prevention and fire suppression.





The School of Fire Protection has many exciting pathways to further your education. Graduates of the two-year or three-year programs are guaranteed acceptance to our Pre-Service program if students would like to continue their education. Graduates of any Pre-Service program can also enrol in our two-year or three-year programs and receive credits for professional option courses.

If graduates are interested in obtaining a degree, we have educational partnership agreements that allow students to transfer credits for most of their three years with Seneca, towards a four-year degree.

We always consider transferring individual course credits or previous education and work experience that meets the same learning outcomes for particular programs. Contact us if you think this applies to you!

Work Experience

All of our programs provide hands-on experience performing tasks that will be required in the careers you can pursue after graduation. You will gain practical experience in our industry-standard lab spaces, during practical exercises and during optional co-op opportunities, for successful applicants.

Our graduates obtain many industry standard certifications. For students that require work experience, they complete necessary academic requirements so that they can be certified sooner once they join the fire protection industry.  For some certifications, some of the work experience is granted for lab work since it replicates industry-required tasks.
