    well it was about time someone put this thread back on topic ....no you still have to go through their recruitment process, it doesn't guarantee you will get hired.

    Can anyone tell me if the " c " program in calgary is IFSTA certified as well as NFPA? I was told that the IFSTA certification is important for applying Canada wide as departments are looking for that certification as well.

    I believe it is IFSAC certified but not sure about the ProBoard.
