taking the test
i was just looking for some direction and information on testing to become a firefighter. i have talked to a lot of people and they all tell me, just test, test whereever i can, just to get the experience. i live in southern california, and i want to do that, but im having trouble finding testing in my area. i signed up for figheremployment.com and the general amount of posts for hiring departments say emt or paramedic testing.i am in school right now for my emt, and for my as in firescience, so as of right now i dont have a lot of the requirements that seem to be neccessarry. can anyone tell me how i can find testing in my area, and how i can just go and take some tests, i just want the experience.
What you have heard from others is pretty much right. take as many tests as possible, you will get better the more you take. Some other sites to hit are, firecareerassist.com, firejobs.com. Those two should give you ample amount of oppourtunities. It should not be that hard to find them, I know that there are a ton of fulltime depts in Cali., you just have to look in the right places.
