    My advice would be to try to contact those company's you are interested in to see if there is any kind of reciprocity. You could also check the DOD website for a contact, or ProBoard and IFSAC which are accrediting agencies here in the U.S. for any reciprocity info.
    I will say that in my limited exposure to fire services outside the US, that things are done differently across the pond in many areas of the job, so "foriegn" certs ect may not be acceptable./

    Hope this helps a little

    Theres a reason they require DoD certs.

    Most expedtionary Fire Protection Operations and Training is DoD structured.
    This system is a broad Universal System so that everyones on the same page as far as expedtionary training and operations.
    It works out better this way IMO.

    The big wigs up there in charge of these US based contracts as far as Theater Fire Chiefs are all pretty much retired US Military or DoD civilian so with them its pretty much the DoD way or the highway friend!

    We had plenty of highly experienced firefighters from all over the Balkans and they were all retrained the DoD way.
