What is the difference between Degree and Certificate?

The Certificate Track has only Fire Science courses; this plan is for the student who only seeks Basic Firefighter Certification (TCFP). The Degree Track has the Fire Science courses but also includes Academic courses, so the student may pursue their Associate of Applied Science Degree in Fire Science Technology.
