    Well Fl has their own cert. so if you dont have that one you can challenge the test. Also most Central Florida depts are feeling the numbers crunch. If they are hiring from what ive seen they want EMT as well but try em if you can find em.

    I don't know of any depts here in the Orlando/central FL area that take people with out having at least there EMT. Everything has become so ALS that most places are only looking for medics. If you don't have your FL state fire standards and FL state EMT it's gonna be a rough time getting a job in the area.

    Just what they said. Your certifications must be Florida certs. As far as not having your EMT as well,simply put, no. I had to be a EMT when I got hired in 1990 for a small city department so in 2009 it's not gonna happen. In the Central Florida area, there are no less than 6 Fire Acadamy's pumping out firefighters year round. There are 2 different schools in Brevard county alone.
