    Default Testing in Texas

    How does one from out of state go about testing in Texas? I heard you have to go to a state academy, is that true? What else does one need to do?

    there are tons and TONS of academies to go to here.... . Most places want you certified before you get hired... the ones that will put you though school, you better be in the top 1% to get hired there.

    Just test test test.... doesnt matter where you live at.

    I believe the city of Irving has guys who FLY in from Oklahoma to work. Yeah... you read that right. They fly in.

    You can also get reciprocity in TX if you have IFSAC fire certs. The TCFP website outlines that also. I believe FF I, FF II, and HAZMAT Ops will get you a TCFP Basic Firefighter Cert if they are IFSAC accredited. Also check into EMS reciprocity. Almost all of the smaller departments require you to have both a fire and an EMS cert before applying. Even some big city depts (houston comes to mind) will put you through a "fast track" program if you are certified (provided you pass all of the tests and get hired of course). Best of luck. PM me if you want more info.
