"From the time I earned my A.A.S. in fire science from CSU, my career has skyrocketed through my organization. With my nine-year tenure with my organization, I have obtained an A.S. and A.A.S. degree in fire science, a B.S. in fire science and a Master of Public Administration and Emergency Services Management. With these degrees, I have progressed extremely fast through the ranks of firefighter, engineer and lieutenant. I have recently been selected to be skip the rank of captain and promote directly to battalion chief. This degree will also provide me with a future opportunity to apply for the assistant chief or fire chief positions, should they become available over the next few years. "
