Thanks for the reply.

I will have to play it by ear, but I don't think they meet NFPA 1403 before the first burn, because they say that they do that within 4 weeks of enrolment.

I just looked through they're website and noticed that all of the members are listed as to FFII, so either we were told incorrectly, or one of the officers is an instructor... I know that some departments do the courses... hmm

Things seem a bit strange looking in from the outside... all of the members that are listed are Engineers (Sr or Jr), or officers... Also they're membership is completely nonselective only pending a CORI check... I guess we will have to play it by ear, T minus 2 months until I join..
