    Default rookie training for veterans

    How does your dept handle rookie training for new applicants that are carreer firefighters, or have been members of other fire depts? I need to come up with information to write an SOP concerning this. I am of the opinion that if an applicant can show he/she has the training, and can demonstrate the skills, that a 'fast track' program may be in order. Our dept currently has a 6 month probationary training program in which the basics are presented to the applicants who are then tested before becoming full members. If anyone has any SOPs on this subject, Please email them to me at dpk368@yahoo.com

    we have something simillar for new to us members taht get transplanted here by moving marriage etc., they are assigned an officer who is their FTO, they are shown around and we have a check off book that has to get completed. We dont dwell to much on what they do know vs how we do it here. Kinda hard to explain, but if they came from active service there is no need to reinvent the wheel.

    We don't have a policy, per se. It really just goes on a case by case basis.......
