    Default Which states will Florida fire cert transfer?

    Hello I'm a paid FF/EMT in FL for the past 10 years. My wife may have a job offer out of state. Where can I find which states will accept Florida firefighter state certification?

    *FL is not IFSAC

    thank you

    nope and some states do not accpet other states

    or you have to go through a cities academy anyway even if you have thirty years as a firefighter

    if you are a paramedic look for a bridge program to RN, as you see they make good money and a little easier to move around

    plus they have so many fields you do not have to work in a hosptial

    you might do a search wit transfer, reciprocity, and maybe even certifiaction, and read through the results

    question has come up

    Here is a link to the proboard website

    http://www.theproboard.org/agencies.htm

    Looks like Florida is on the list...perhpas you could use a proboard cert to make the move. Also, the list will give you an idea of what states will be a better chance for you.
