    yes i do know that. I took both tests this year, both were the same test. and as i stated i was just curious if any one else took it cus i never heard anything after they told us we passed. Still havent heard anything on my end, ive only been checking in here for my info though. havent talked to a recruiter since my interview.

Congrats to all that are in and you never know if you haven't got a call that some people might fall out do to the drug/physical/background check
    Where you able to get all your uniforms, etc?

    We got our pants, long and short sleeve blue button up shirts, ball caps, station shirts, belts and jacket. Since we haven't officially been hired we couldn't take it with us but it is bagged up so we can pick it up when the letters come in. They are doing this it speed up the process, because later we will have to be fitted for bunker gear and it takes a little more time.

    Just went out to lunch and saw one of the recruit classes that is about to graduate here in the next week or two.
    You guys that are about to go in have some awesome instructors out there.
    Congratulations, again, to all those getting calls.
    If you haven't gotten one yet....hold tight. Hopefully it's coming!

    paramedic

    some depts. in dfw will hire you if you have paramedic, and send you for ff cert

    also, a faster way to get ff cert is:: online work and two weeks at school::

    Fire and medic are both great certs to have but not a guarantee by any means. Community service and volunteering for things in the community go a long way. Also continue your college hours if possible. Departments like Dallas are looking for motivated people that also well rounded. You want to be able to paint the best picture of yourself on your application, then it makes it that much easier to sell yourself to the oral board. I hope this helps, good luck!

    As far as my understanding for dallas, the presenters don't know anything about you before you sit down. The interview is your audition. Things that helped me were mock oral boards and having a tape recorder so I could listen to my voice and any ummms. Obviously your certs help but there are an array of individuals recieving calls some with experience and certs and some without!
