    Default Basic Firefighter Class

    What are the requirements to take a Basic Firefighter Class?
    The words I post here are my own. They do not reflect the opinions of the organizations I am affilliated with.

    I didn't think there was any requirements for it, that's why it's basic.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Most places, a willingness to learn and not goof off are all you need.
    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

    Requirements like how old you have to be(I'm 18), do you need to be out of high school, things like that. Sorry I didn't elaborate more on my first post.

    That is going to differ everywhere. Your best bet is to call the academic institution or department that is holding this class and ask them.

    Im in firefighter 1 right now, with only three classes left, feels like its never gonna end either b/c classes keep being canceled due to weather. Anyways back to the question. Im only 17 and a senior in high school so here in New York you don't have to be 18 or out of high school.

    Thanks for everyones posts. It has helped me alot. Right now, my Chief is at the state acadmey(spelling?) taking a class right now, but when he gets back I will talk to him.

    Also I live in Tennessee, and, if this helps, here are some of the requirements to be a Volunteer Firefighter: have to be 18, have a drivers license, have a high school diploma or G.E.D and have no criminal record. I hope this helps,and Thanks again everyone.
