    Default Do I have enough certs to get a contract FF job?

    I am a former Air Force fire fighter for 4 years. I heard contract jobs especially Iraq and Afgan pay well. I was also looking at Kwajelein. I have the following certs.

    Basic Certs:
    Fire Fighter I & II
    Hazmat Awareness/Ops
    ARFF

    Advanced Certs:
    HazMat Technician
    Rescue Technician I
    Driver/Operator ARFF
    Driver/Operator Pumper
    Driver/Operator Mobile Water Supply
    Telecommunicator I
    Swift Water Rescue Awareness
    Space Shuttle Rescue Awareness Course

    National Register EMT-B (Expired)

    Do I have a shot at a contract job?

    I would say the only thing that might srew you is not having a current EMT cert.

    Your list looks great. I would talk to a recruiter; I believe all of them want some type of medical, such as first responder.
