    Default Getting Civilian FF Job After Military Service

    States like Florida require getting FF I & 2 through one of their state programs. Does that mean we have to retake FF I & II even if we get the FF I & II certificates at the DoD Academy?

    Anybody know it works in different states?

    go to Florida's state page and go to the fire services part...it explains everything...baically...you CAN use your certifications because theyre IFSAC BUT you have to go through a LONG process that they use to make sure your certifications have the same criteria as heir school and then you also have to take a pracical test.....its pretty gay...but doable

    I've been throught the process and its very tricky! You have to challenge the entire process. Youll do a written test and a pratical too.... the examiners are by the book and lookin' to ding you ( at least it feels that way ). If you notice my screen name... I dont live in Florida! If you have any questions shoot me a line....
