One piece of advice (hopefully not too late): keep ALL course completion certificates for all incident training, for the rest of your career (should you get hired and stay with it). That may not guarantee you won't have to retake courses when employed (agencies have discretion to accept (or not) training received as a private citizen), but I will guarantee federal agencies will not accept your word you completed a course in community college. You should at least receive a National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) certificate of completion, or equivalent, as proof of completing the prescribed training. Federal training or qualifications record keepers will require you to provide proof of all wildland fire training, and will keep a hard-copy file of same to back up data entered into IQCS.
Good luck; hope you find a job and make a career of it!
