    The hiring this year will be off of the list that was made last year? Or will there be another application process later on?

    They made it sound like as long as you score high enough in the interview you will get hired. One of the HR ppl said how many they hire depends on how many score high enough

    I hope so, it seems very difficult to get hired when you don't have prior experience as a firefighter and when cities only hire a handful of people. Hopefully this will be good news for many of us.

    I believe academy is 8 weeks. There have been a few classes have been called for those that had 2+ years experience. One class is already on shift. Another is in academy now and graduates on 2/28. There is another class scheduled to start in mid March.

    The class scheduled to start in late April/May will be off of the 2nd group of interviews for those that had less than 2 years experience.

    Word is that they may start a new application process sometime in late spring/early summer. No idea how many that they plan to hire but I heard that they have 100+ vacancies that needed to be filled.

    I was told this class starts April 28th. That could always change. I'm Just thankful to be moving forward. PBCFR has always been my top choice and it will be a dream come true if I get on. Good luck to everyone else still in the process.

    2 or more yrs on a paid dept
    Valid Acls card
    Valid paramedic cert
    EVOC
    She also stated recruitment will be VERY soon! Stay up!

    nationaltestingnetwork.com I used this as well as my friend that got hired with palm beach county last year and they accepted it. We drove to Ocala and did the test, only took a few minutes.. you can go back onto the website and print out your pass/fail paper. It expires after one year, I took mine last may so it is almost up for me. I hope this helps you.
