    hey heavy. yeah i took the challenge. its pretty easy. if you have a basic knowledge of firefighting you should pass with out a problem. they will send you a bookelt to study up on. matt is a cool guyand a couple of the girls are fun to look at. tell matt that your doing this for WSI and he will help you out with what ever you need help with. i still owe him a case of guinness. lol.

    Is the Bucks County you speak of in PA? And how much does it cost to challenge the hazmat test? If you could e-mail me at JTomo@att.blackberry.net I have some questions. I have had all my other certs for awhile. I just need the hazmat one.

    yes its in PA and i dont know about the hazmat class...i know it is costing me 280 for all of it. for some reason the state of MI certs dont count by DOD standards....so i gotta go get a piece of paper sayin i can do the job iv been doin inner city for 5 years. oh well.
    i am actually sittin here filling out my Initial application packet from wackenhut right now. guess that puts me one step closer

    Default Fo 3

    I am challenging the Fire Officer 3 program.
    Up to now I have typed 16,000 words and performed a series of administrative tasks.
    Basically building a Fire Dept from the ground up.
    All of BCC-FTA 3's and 4's can be obtained and any member of WSI can spend their "off time" creating the challenge book, then send it to BCC-FTA, a check of $250 pays for the assessment.

    Do you have to physically go there to challenge a test?
