    Default Can I take exam without being fully qualified?

    A local fire department near me is doing an entry exam in October. the only thing is I don't have my FF1 certification(which they require) I already got my CPAT and the other little things they ask for. Questions is....will they let me take their test? I know it's a long shot for them to even consider me....but I've never taken a fire fighter exam before. I'm barely doing my EMT-B. I just want to start practing test taking for future departments. So is it worth my time taking it or should I pass on it?

    If they will let you take the test take it

    We have that within in so many months of graduation

    The hiring process takes a few months, so by the time it matters the person will either have passed or failed

    Anything on their web site or in the announcement to clarify it??

    You will need to meet the minimum requirements. Do not waste your time if you do not meet the MQ's.
