  • Apply physical principles to solve a variety of simple problems.
  • Demonstrate the proper use of physical apparatus for testing and observing physical theories.
  • Write scientific reports on a given experiment indicating the significance of the experiment and the degree to which the results verify a principle or law.

"Enrolling in the Fire Academy at Hancock was the best decision of my life. I am receiving an amazing education from instructors who have hundreds of years of experience combined. We are able to apply what we learn inside the classroom to real world applications by using the complex's state-of-the-art facilities. There is no doubt in my mind, I will be as prepared as possible to hit the ground running with a fire department after I graduate."
