I need some advice about attaining a couple of certs.
I'm looking for some advice on where I can efficiently and economically acquire a couple of certs. I've analyzed where I'm at and I want to further my training so that I'm more marketable to potential employers and have more knowledge in general. My goal is to try to get a job in the future with a DOD dept. or as an overseas contractor. This is what I already have from my limited time in the military before I got out due to a drawback in force. FF I & II, Hazmat AWS, OPS and Tech, ARFF, first responder/CPR. What I want to get are all of my driver/operator certs for pumper, MWS & ARFF, telecommunicator I & II and EMT-B. I don't know what the best way to do this quickly and cheaply is? I've seen people mentioning TEEX and Alabama Fire College but I live in Missouri and was wondering if there are any places that train thoroughly and less expensively with DOD reciprocity closer to my neck of the woods? I've contemplated reenlisting in the reserves/guard cause I know I could get those certs there as well as more hands on training and experience but I'm not sure if that would be better for me as I strive toward my goal or if it would end up being a hindrance? I'm hoping someone can give me some advice or guidance please. Thanks.
