STL CO Academy
Did anyone who is currently working for a St. Louis County FD pay their own way through STL CO fire academy before they had a job secured? I am considering paying for academy if I can get accepted and I am just looking for some feedback to make sure it's worth it. I already have a job at a nearby FD and I have my paramedic license but the future looks brighter in STL CO. Do the academy graduates have a good chance of being hired?
Did you see if U. City is hiring? I know they usually will hire medics and send them to the academy. Im sure there are more that do that.
How come nobody replies to Missouri posts?
Because were all lazy:eek:

I do know of a few people that have paid for the class and then found jobs. One took about three months to get a job and the other took around a year.
Just refreshing the post to see if anyone has more info on STL County academy.
I don't have any info on the academy, but if you have your paramedic than you should have no problem getting on full time with someone.
