If that's the case, I can tell you just about every pure-vollie and probably at least 75% of the combination departments in this state are in violation of said rule, law, or regulation.
Then again, lots of departments are hiring and promoting guys to Engineer without their FF2, or Driver/Operator 1A & 1B certs... *shrug*
Personally, if all you're looking for is just to be a volunteer, show you can do all the skills in the Certified Volunteer Firefighter Training Record, and have your volunteer/combination dept send that in (must have The Chief's signature). You might want to "update" your HAZMAT FRO and CSR Operations to "California Standard", too, just to cover all the bases.My opinions might coincide with someone of importance's POV... I wouldn't know, since I never bothered to ask. My policy is: "Don't ask, don't care."

Sorry I upset you. That was not my goal. California is a big state and I forget that things aren't always the same everywhere.
There are other community colleges that are cheaper and supply PPE. There are also colleges that do a part time program for those who must work during the academy.
Funny, I just saw an announcement for an "FF2 Academy" being put on by another local community college... open registration to anyone possessing a current FF1 cert. So I guess you can do it as department training, or if you have a local CC willing to put it on as a full class, there ya go, too. *shrug*Mike
