    Sounds like Aurora is beginning their Background Process. Their e-mail notice calls for March 4, 2013 being slated for their next Academy.

    Sorry for being off DFD topic, but I saw you guys posting about Aurora and I have an app in for the lateral. Has anyone heard anything about this? Is anyone on here in the lateral process? I turned in my app in May, got an email back stating that it was forwarded to the fire dept. and have heard nothing back. I know it does not close until the end of the year, but was curious if anyone had any info?? Thanks in advance.

    You wont hear anything until it closes, if you don't have your medic the lateral may not work for you. AFD is an all medic Dept. The entry level people are currently do polygraphs and backgrounds. I hope that is the answer you are looking for.

    Hey guys, I was looking over the requirements for DFD and was curious if one would be trained as in EMT while in the fire academy or if you would have to do that in addition to the academy on your own? The information booklet isn't 100% clear on this issue.

    "While employed with the Denver Fire Department, Firefighters are required to obtain and maintain certification as an E.M.T. Renewal training and testing is required to ensure compliance."


    I did find this in the 2011 recruit manual:

    "The EMT-B National Registry is required by the end of your first year of employment. Failure to attain a National Registry EMT-B level certificate or higher, will result in dismissal. Maintaining State
    EMT-B Certification is mandatory as a condition of continued employment with the Denver Fire Department."

    It seems you can be hired without it, so I guess my question remains, is it your responsibility to obtain the cert on your own time and dime?

    The academy is approx 20+ weeks, from what I'm told If you currently hold an EMT cert you will be released from the academy to the line. The folks that don't hold a cert will "Finish" the rest of the academy which is when the EMT training starts. That is to the best of my knowledge.

    So if you have EMT then the academy is less than 20 weeks?

    I qualified for language points..it was pretty tough.

    Is our two year list 2 years from the test date or eligible register date?

    From what I'm being told, the academy will be slightly shorter for the folks that have E.M.T. The two years start from the date the list was certified by the comission.
