    Default a couple questions

    i know its a long shot to even be thinking about going overseas but i thought id ask anyway to clear things up

    so im fire 1, 2 certified in florida and i'm a medic as well. i saw that most of the jobs need you to be ifsac certified and hazmat. how can i go about getting these certs? do i just challenege the ifsac since i already have a state fire cert? or whats the cheapest route to get the certs

    also, would they even give me (20 yr old fire/medic) a shot at a job over there? it sounds like an amazing experience and i'd love to do it before settling down for a job in florida.

    http://www.ifsac.org/ is where you can find out information about IFSAC. From what I have seen most places overseas want 3 years or more experience. But I would email IFSAC and see what they tell you your best course of action is.
