Interested in a Prevention/Investigation/Codes career
I also posted in the prevention forum, so please excuse me if you already read my intentions. I am interested in working in the prevention/investigation/codes field. My original goal was to work as a seasonal firefighter for a few years in hopes of potentially branching off into prevention. Unfortunately my plans haven't worked out exactly like I had hoped.
I have worked as an Intern Firefighter EMT for 5 years(3-24hr shifts a month), and a volunteer for just under two years. I also have my A.S. in Fire Technology and will have my B.S. in Fire Prevention by the end of the year.
Does anyone have any advice as to what courses and training I could take to increase my chances in the field, I keep reading about having code certificates but I am not very informed on how to take themI'mIm interested in state, city, and private (insurance) jobs in relation to the field.
Here's a list of what certificates I have.
A.S. Fire Technology
B.S. Fire Prevention (2013)
Fire Investigation 1A
Fire Investigation 1B
Cal Fire 67 hr
Confined Space Awareness
Low Angle Rescue
