              Does anyone have any information about the TABE and PERT tests? I have called numerous times regarding them, and each time, I am transferred over to someone that does not know. What exempts you from taking these tests, and if not exempt, how can you schedule them?

                realistically? no.
                it's an open competitive, but they're most likely gonna pull in locals with both FL fire & medic certs, not to mention the veterans with all certs.
                they'll run a class or two with people without any certifications because of the grant, but those classes are very few and far between.

                either way good luck

                  you're not exempt from ANY testing. TABE/PERT i believe is what's used as entry into the local fire college programs, not sure how that applies with MDFR considering they have their own fire academy.

                    Interesting. They finally emailed me back and said it wasn't required as part of the application. Not sure when I'd need it, though. Trying to get everything sorted out. I live quite far away (southern PA, to be exact), even though my legal address is now in Miami, so trying to limit the number of flights I'll need to take down.

                      What's the reasoning that most Florida departments require Florida certifications? Just to cut out out-of-state applicants?

                        Pretty much FL doesn?t play well with others.
                        If you have proboard you?ll still have to test out in the middle of FL to get your fire cert. it?s ridiculous

                          Anyone know how many they plan to take to cpat? And if they still give lottery numbers? Pretty sure I scored very highly. Just worried about background. Have been fired from two jobs in the past 5 years.
