    Default Where should I list my fire exploring experience in a resume?

    I've been an explorer for about two years now. Now that I'm old enough to look for a job in the field I love, I was wondering if I should put my exploring experience under "work experience", "education", or "skills"?
    I have also completed an explorer academy, wild land academy (have all my wild land certs) and I have my NREMT cert.

    The job I am making this resume for is for an EMT position at an ambulance company or hospital.

    Absolutely put it on your resume. Put it in the work section just as if the fire department were the employer and put down "volunteer" in the wage area. Be sure to include references of not only your training, but of how you are dependable (on time for duty shifts, etc.), work well with others (being a part of a duty crew, etc.) and can lead (coordinated explorer training, etc.).

    Best of luck.
