    Default Application question for Navy GS fire job

    I applied for a fire job with the Navy. I noticed the other day that it said I applied for the GS 0081-05 position. I'm pretty sure that I selected the 04 grade, becasue I know I am not eligible for the 5. The only thing I don't have is my Airport.
    Is it possible that they automatically bumped me up to a higher grade due to having most of my certs?
    Thanks!!!!

    No, it is not. The only possibility of being qualified is if you put that you recently took the ARFF class and are just waiting for the cert.

    Stay safe,

    Which department did you apply to? You may not need the ARFF if you are applying to a region that has only 1 base with a flying mission. NRNW only requires ARFF if you applied to the Whidbey Island position. The other 6 facilities require FFII/HM Tech/EMT for a GS-6 position, anything less would drop you to a GS-4 slot.

    Thanks
    I applied to Brunswick. I know they will be closing in the near future, but I figure it's a good way to get into the GS system.
