    I have my fire Cert and Emt Cert and have volunteered. I have had my certs since 2006 and have been trying to get on any department. Just couldn't get over that last hump, but finally did.

    I'm also in the first class starting in nov. Been on a dept since 08, medic since 10. Hoping for a fast track for us certified ones but believe you will need to have work with a dept in the past to be eligible. Can't wait for the 6th! Looking forward to meeting some of y'all! Congrats guys we are now part of one of the greatest dept in the world!

    Most fast track guys are laterals but it isn't a requirement. At least it hasn't been in previous fast track classes. I know some guys that went through when I got on and others that have gone through since that were just fire and EMT/Medic certified with no prior experience. Good luck to those of you that got offers and stay outta trouble!

    I didn't make the cut for the 2nd yr in a row. I really thought I had it this yr and was totally bummed to find out I hadn't. Now I'm debating whether I want to this again next yr... Mainly because I'll be 34 soon. I'd be 35 yr old recruit. I'm currently w/ a smaller dept and also dreamed about working for a big department. I have a kid so I'm not leaving the DFW metroplex..should I just cut my losses??

    Hey guys, I noticed a few pages back on here some of the top 40 guys were saying they were doing finger prints along with the physical. Does this mean they haven't already done the background checks? As well as driving records?

    State requires fingerprints so they can check on initial certification



    *IMPORTANT*** YOU ARE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT FINGERPRINT DATA FOR A CRIMINAL HISTORY CHECK IF EITHER OF THE FOLLOWING SITUATIONS APPLY TO YOU:
    • YOU HAVE NOT BEEN APPOINTED TO FIRE PROTECTION DUTIES WITH A COMMISSION-REGULATED ENTITY, AND DO NOT HOLD AN ACTIVE CERTIFICATION WITH THE TEXAS COMMISSION ON FIRE PROTECTION.
    • YOU WERE APPOINTED TO FIRE PROTECTION DUTIES WITH A COMMISSION-REGULATED ENTITY PRIOR TO JANUARY 1, 2010, BUT YOU DO NOT YET HOLD AN ACTIVE CERTIFICATION.

    Does anyone know the expected graduation date for class 316? My daughters boyfriend is in that class, we are the other side of the country and would like to do a little long range planning. If I do the math right it is around the first week of June? Is that right? Thanks in advance.

    Congrats and best wishes to all 316 class members.
