    Congrats Capt. I got mine back in 1990 and still look through my old college books from time to time. Any advancement in your education will make you a better officer/firefighter
    A "Good" fire is not measured by how big it is, but by the fact that everyone is going home safe, and that we possibly learned something new about firefighting. Member:IACOJ

    Station2Capt.... Thanks...I tend to agree that any education may make you a step better...but a degree does not make you "qualified" for a position...which is the case here. I had to finish it(not that I did not want to)to be "qualified" for a position.

    By having my degree and taking one more class from Florida (Building Plans and Blue Prints Review) I will then become "qualified" to be a Lieutenant and be in line for the Next Captain spot that will hopefully come open this year.
