New Fire Officer Certificate Program

Posted on: 17 July 2018

The University of Missouri Fire and Rescue Training Institute (MU FRTI) is happy to announce that changes to the current Fire Officer Certificate Program are in progress. We are currently working to improve the program and update the courses and requirements needed to qualify. This new updated version of the program will continue to provide the knowledge and responsibilities for current or aspiring company officers. It is our goal to modernize and improve the program for today's aspiring fire officers. Stay connected to MU FRTI for details about the new program's requirements coming this Fall.


MU FRTI will no longer be accepting applications for the current Fire Officer Certificate Program after July 31, 2018. Anyone interested in applying for the Fire Officer Certificate Program who does not have the majority of the coursework completed should wait and apply for the updated version coming this Fall. Any applications received for the current program before July 31, 2018, will be reviewed on a case by case basis to determine if the applicant will be enrolled in the current program or the new updated program this Fall.


If you have any questions regarding the application deadline for the current program please contact us at If you are already enrolled in the current Fire Officer Certificate Program you will be contacted on your progress and the procedures required to finish the current program individually in a separate correspondence.
