    Anyone have suggestions as to the best place to look at as far as fireschool in houston goes? Opinions on whether an online course, or at an actual school is better? How hard would it be to go from being a certified volunteer to full time?
    Sorry for all the questions, I have been looking into this because this is what I ultimately want to do with my life and would like some insight from those of you who have already gone through all this.

    Thanks
    Mike

    I too, would like to know how difficult it would be going from volunteer to paid. I'm assuming there is a HUGE amount of competition but the experience might give you an upper hand.

    As far as a good school, I'd say Wharton County Junior College. A lot of their instructors are from Sugar Land Fire Department.
