    From what I was told, interviews should have wrapped up on April 7th. I'm curious if they've contacted anyone since that was completed.

    Yes. I got invited down to interview with the Chief last week.

                          • Just curious if anyone has any info into how ACFD works? I'm having trouble finding anything on their academy (other than it's 26 weeks). Is it Monday-Friday 9-5 type deal, or something else?

                            Also, I saw on the site that you need to be doing ALS a year after being hired. Do they put you through that or do you have to do that on your days off or what?

                              The academy is M-F, time I believe is 0730 til 1600. There is approx an hour of PT either first thing or last thing. The academy will be split between EMT and Fire. Which one is done first depends on the State EMT testing cycle.

                              If given a final offer, you will be given a contract to sign stating that you will obtain an ALS cert and maintain it for the rest of your career. In the past, before I left, you were not able to go to ALS school until you are off probation. Again depending on department needs, they use to take volunteers first and if not enough people went they would send you based on recruit school. So the people who have been on prior to you, would be sent if they haven't gone already.

                              Now things may have changed since I left so maybe someone else, Dennis, could have more recent info.

                              • So after your probation period, they eventually send you back to an ALS academy type of thing? So you're out of the firehouse for that time (a year or more?) until you get your ALS cert?

                                Also, after you get your ALS, how is it determined what rig you'll be on? Truck/Engine/Medic unit? Is it a shift by shift thing, 6 months on Medic, 6 months on Truck/Engine, a couple hours each shift on Medic, etc?
