    Question Transferring from NJ to MD?

    There is a strong possibility that I will be moving to Maryland from New Jersey in the coming months. I was wondering if my NJ FF-1 certification would be valid in MD. If there is no reciprocity between the two states, is there a way to challenge the MD test without going through an academy again?

    Thanks!

    Which county? If it does not transfer then you can go to MFRI and challenege it where you take the written and then do all the skills. Contact the station you're joining. They'll be able to give you more information.

    thats like moving from a huge turd to a smaller turd...

    no matter how you look at it, your still living in....

    but, all jokes aside, you are moving on up in the world. I have heard that getting a paid gig, be it day crew, part time or full time is a lot easier in MD than NJ.

    Arent you going to miss the "Jersey Shore?"

    Of course I'll miss the Jersey Shore, just not the people who tend to migrate there in the summertime and trash it.

    And you're right. It is difficult to get hired anywhere in NJ unless you live in the city that you want to work for.

    You might want to contact Harve Woods direct. Who knows, you might get real lucky and end up working for him. You'll have to feed and harness the horses tho

    I thought Kentland had to approve all transfers to MD...
