    Question Columbus, GA Entry Requirements

    I was looking the other day on www.governmentjobs.com and came across a posting for firefighter/EMT for Columbus, Georgia. One of the entry requirements for the job was: COLLEGE DEGREE OR TEST SCORES FROM ONE OF THE FOLLOWING: COMPASS/SAT/ACT/CPE/ASSET. I was just wondering why one would need a college degree or need to take any of the college entrance exams for a firefighter position. I'm have never seen any other fire department even come close to these requirements.

    From what I gather. They use the tests as their written exam. So they don't have to hold one. If you have a college degree, that overrides the college placement tests.

    Ok, that makes sense.
