    Default DOD Fire Academy

    Hello Everyone I leave for Army Basic Training on April 22nd and then I'm off to Goodfellow AFB for the DOD Fire Academy. I was looking to hear from anyone who has been through the Academy Recently, and also I wanted to know Do the Certs you earn through the academy transfer to your state (Florida) or how does that work? Thank you everyone.

    NO.

    DOD Certs translated into civilian language= IFSAC/Pro-Board Certification, which the State of Florida DOES NOT accept; however you CAN challenge their written and practical exam but it is very very hard to do and they really put anyone who does this through the wringer.
