Calgary Fire Fighter Training Program "C"?
So, I found an ad in the Career section of the Calgary Sun on the weekend advertising for a Fire Fighter Training Program "C". It is a partnership between the Calgary Fire Dept. and fire etc. Basically the ad says:
This program consists of a six week self-study followed by seven weeks practical training and provides certification in:
NFPA 1001 Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications Levels I & II
NFPA 472 Hazardous Materials Response - Awareness and Operations
NAPD Driving and First Aid/CPR Level "C".
Application deadline is May 13, 2005.
I fugured I would post this and find out if anyone else has heard about this or knows anything about it. I am hoping to get a chance to call the number provided in the add to find out more information, which I can post when I find out more.
ah ha, the truth comes out
Well I just phoned the number on the ad, and yup, it is a course specifically designed for the Calgary Fire Dept. for next year, and to help out with this year's applicants too I guess. I also found out that on top of the course fees, there is another application fee for the physcial fitness and aptitude test done by Calgary. So in total, the full amount is $8,400.00 roughly, not including taxes, meals, or accomodations if needed (and if I heard correctly). Yikes! Thanks Dave, your right as usual! :p
small diversion off topic..oh well
Thanks Dave! It makes a little more sense seeing it listed, as its not set out very well in my text. We'll see how saturday goes with the instructor, hopefully we can put a few more pieces to the puzzle, like where the BP cuff comes into the whole scheme of things. One question though, If your going through the rapid body assessment, and you come across something, do you treat it right away, or come back to it after your assessment is done?? Thanks again! :D
