Training for those with previous experience?
Howdy! I am a prior service US navy submariner who has gone through advanced fire fighting school and in my civilian life serve as a coast guard certified MedPIC on board a ship. I have an EMT-B cert with both my state (Washington) and NREMT. Now that I am settling down a bit with my family, I am considering volunteering for my local fire department. In all humility, I realize that my navy fire training is all geared toward ships and that Iíll be needing additional training to suit an urban environment but how much of the basic first aid training will I have to go through again and is there any way I can get some of my training ďsigned offĒ???
