  • Heard a class was starting on March 24th. Anyone else confirm? Will this be an abridged class?

    Comment


    • According to the fire department calendar, the first day that the B-side of the 136th Recruit School is on March 17. My understanding is that calls for that class are presently being made.

      Good luck!

      • Not sure what the class # is, but there is one starting March 24. Calls were made over a month ago and letters have been sent out.

        • Calls have been made.

          • Has anyone got a call to pick up their uniforms yet? I was fitted over a month ago and will be out of the country for the next couple of weeks. Haven't heard anything.

              I believe that uniforms are still issued on your first day of the academy. Give your recruitment contact a call and let them know you will be out of pocket for a bit. When you get back, call them again.

              • First I want to start off by saying Congratulations to those of you who were just hired in the most recent class!

                This may be a bit premature but does anyone know when Fairfax will be opening up their next FF/EMT-B process? Thanks and congrats again!

                Comment


                • For those that we accepted for the class beginning at the end of March...have you been told whether this is the much rumored abbreviated class for experienced personnel?

                  Comment


                  • Has anyone heard any anticipated hire dates for the test just given?

                      My impression is that class 132B is "abbreviated" in that those coming in will not have to go through EMT, but they will go through a full fire school.

                      • The rumor I've heard from some good sources is that 136b is all currently certified nfpa 1001 firefighters with experience. That class 136a is on track to graduate late July and that 136b is going to be 16weeks total and graduate at the same time with 8 weeks Ems training and 8 weeks fire school. Obviously not long enough to do the entire academy. But hey you know how rumors go

                          While at the CPAT Miss Dawkins said expect a march of 15 class start date. Medicals are backed up until April from the October test .. So medicals won't be until summer for the test done in February. I'm getting impatient already.
