AD Military Firefighter to Civilian
I am currently serving in the USAF as a firefighter; date of voluntary separation is March 8 2015, currently deployed till Oct.
I wanted to get some guidance as to what would help set me apart from the rest when I apply, I know my military experience, IFSAC certs, NIMS, and etc. will help. What else can I accomplish while I'm deployed or maybe when I return? Any help will be appreciated.
Also, does anyone have any information on the acceptance of IFSAC certs? I phoned a dept. in California and Arizona and was told that it was up to the Chief on whether or not the certs would be accepted.
Upon my return to the states I will be enrolled in an EMT-B course that I WILL pass along with the national registry. Then I will apply everywhere possible for the most part. Should I work towards my EMT-P while applying everywhere or wait till hired?
I have to admit its pretty nerve racking for me to be looking for a job again.
