3 INTRODUCTION Hillsborough Community College engages in a review of academic, academic support, and administrative areas for the following purposes: 1. To complement the institution s strategic planning process requiring the internal development of unit plans with an external perspective in the review of those plans and the quality of programs and services. 2. To respond to intrinsic motivations for continuous improvement with a focus on the enhancement of institutional effectiveness and efficiency; student learning outcomes; and client satisfaction. 3. To respond to state mandates and accreditationn requirements of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools calling for a systematic review of all programs and services. The review is conducted by a Task Force composed primarily of individuals outside the unit under review. The chair is a full time employee of the unit under review. The charge to the Task Force is to identify strengths and weaknessess of the unit as guided by empirical evidence. From the list of strengths and weaknesses, the Task Force is to develop recommendations for improvement to capitalize on strengths and redress weaknesses. The work of the Task Force is to be completed within the spring semester culminating in a final report. For academic areas, a judgment should also be rendered regarding the continued viability of the program in context of service area demand, enrollment, and critical workforce needs. Subsequently, two brief follow-up reports are to be drafted. The first follow-up report is due in the following semester. The second is due one year laterr at the conclusion of the semester in which the original review was conducted. Each consists of a listing of the final recommendations with a few statements indicating the status of theirr achievement. Recommendations not achieved within a year may become unit planning objectives to ensure a continued focus on their attainment. Objectives that stem from review recommendations should be indicated as such in the Strategic Planning System of the College..

4 DESCRIPTION OF UNIT The mission of the Fire Science Technology Accredited Program is to maintain and operate a state certified comprehensive training and educations system for local area fire services. The Fire Science Technology Accredited Program plans, researches, develops and delivers quality basic, advanced, and specialized training programs to enhance the ability of fire service providers to protect life, expeditee incident stabilization, and protection of property and the environment. The program is fully accredited by the Bureau of Standards and Training Division of the Florida State Fire College and offers the most current and up to date curriculum. Under the auspices of the Fire Science Technology Accredited Program, students are able to completee required courses to obtain various state certifications such as the State Certified Pump Operator, State Certified Fire Service Instructor, State Certified Fire Service Inspector, State Certified Fire Officer, and the (state recognized) International Association of Fire Fighter s Hazardous Materials Technician Certification.

20 STRENGTHS OF THE UNIT 1. Program accessibility: Class offerings via online delivery and the flexibility of the program to deliver classes as they are needed meeting the demands of the 1,400 firefighters in the greater Hillsborough County area and their twenty four hour work schedule. Source: Task Force Notes, Fire Science Advisory Committeee Notes, Datatel-Query 2. Facilities: HCC has state-of-the-art set forth by the Florida State Fire College Bureau of Fire Standards and teaching facilities and fire ground simulators meeting current certification requirements Training. With the purchase and construction of the Columbus Drive facility, a new, up-to-date fire training building with modern fire ground simulators advances the resource capabilities greatly over the past five years. Other similar facilities exist in St. Petersburg, Polk County and at the Florida State Fire College in Ocala however, with Hillsborough Community College now owning their own fire engines and an aerial ladder truck to be used at the facility is unprecedented. Aeriall ladder trucks were previously scheduled, borrowed and demonstrated from area fire departments on limited, tight and extremely short time frames which will no longer be necessary. Classes weree previously required travel off-site to a fire station where an aerial ladder truck was housed which will no longer be a factor for students. The training grounds will be able to accommodate more than one class at a time (i.e. firee academy, A.S. Degree classes, contracted agency training, etc.). Area fire departments will be encouraged to contractt with Hillsborough Community College for use of the facility to conduct a portionn of their internal in-service training on-site that requires hands-on applications or fire ground simulation. To operate the site at its fullest potential, a facility manager/coord dinator is needed to overseee the various schedules, facility maintenance, vehiclee maintenance, etc. 3. Program Placement Rates data shows strength in graduate s ability to find employment: a. Program completers 100% employed b. Earnings higher than the National Average Firefighter Average - National Average - Source: Fire Science Technology Report $22.62/ hr. $21.99//hr. 2.8% higher 4. Market Demographics: Growth in the number of jobs through 2022, both in the county and state. Firefighters in Hillsborough County in 213 Projection in ,232 1,385 (12% increase) Source: Fire Science Technology Report 5. Program effectiveness: 90% of the course offerings in the program are used by firefighters to meet criteria for promotion and Florida State Fire College (FSFC) advanced certification requirements. Source: Fire Science Technology Report

21 WEAKNESSES OF THE UNIT 1. Decrease in degree seeking and degree completing students. Thiss statistic is a direct reflection of area fire services required to become a statee certified paramedic or face termination within a three year window. Students completing the paramedic program in the Allied Health program receive (42) credits toward the degree requirements, resulting in a decrease need for the fire science degree. Fire Sciencee had 98 students enrolled with 10 students completing the degree during (Source: Workforce Programss Institutional Research H.C.C.). Fire Science students use the curriculum to meet the requirements for promotional opportunities within their organization or to improve employment opportunities 2. Lack of current technology in the practical portion off course delivery. The equipment used for pumpp operations is not current with that which is used in area departments. (Task Force Notes.)

22 THREATS TO THE UNIT 1. Abundance of certificate only training centers and single source providers delivering Fire Science Classes starting in Students through Industrial Credentialing are able to turn these certificates into College Credit at a reduced rate resultingg in a decreased enrollment of 24% from 2011 to (Source: Datatel query and Fire Science Enrollment Analysis)

23 OPPORTUNITIES/RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE UNIT 1. Develop a creative approach to online course delivery through an open enrollment strategy. All online Fire Science classes would bee open for enrollment during the falll and spring semesters allowing students to take classess as they need them. 2. Purchase a state of the art fire engine to keep current with technologic demands. 3. Link the PSAV Fire Academy to the A.S. Degreee Program with a College Credit Certificate (9) credits.

24 The final report and follow-ups will be distributed by the chair to the President s Cabinet, appropriate deans and/or directors, unit head, unit members, task force members, and all campus libraries. It will be posted to Public Folders and disseminated electronically to the HCC community.
