    Would you have preferred to have taken the course before arriving? and paid for it out of your own pocket?

    Having said that, I have worked with some outstanding prior service firefighters, most of them have not attempted to gain every certification they could while on active duty. I'm all for taking as much training as possible, but does a 2-3 yr veteran of the fire service need all Officer, Instructor and Inspector 2? NO, they should be focusing on being a good firefighter.
    I know very well that many installations still have firefighters who work in dispatch so a understanding of how the operations of a dispatch works, but isn't that covered in your FFI curriculum?
    I am a veteran and proud of time spent on active duty and reserve time. I'm also thankful for the those who continue to step up and serve!
    Johnny, I agree with you philosophically however, usually the contract companies ask for this cert(s) because it is a requirement of the contract. Nothing more.

    To the OP, check out TEEX -- they usually have this course available.
