  • Am I on the right track?

    Hello everyone. I am just looking from some input from professionals in the field to see if I am on the right track towards a career in Fire, arson and explosive investigation.

    I am 22 years old, I have my associates degree in Fire Protection Technology and was just recently accepted and working on getting my Bachelor's degree in Fire, Arson and explosive investigation at Eastern Kentucky University.

    I have about 108 hours of training done on CFI-Trainer.net, ics 100, 200, 300 is scheduled to be done in the month of may, 700, and 800 along with a few in between such as 701, 804 etc. I am also going to the State Fire Academy to take the fire behavior, arson awareness and Principles of fire investigation course. I am also a member with the NFPA, NAFI, and the IAAI. I have been a volunteer firefighter since I was 18 and 2 years prior for explorers and junior firefighter and am an emt and was a lieutenant for a year.

    Is there anything else I should be doing or consider taking to improve my resume in anyway shape or form to be an ideal candidate as a Fire, arson and explosive Investigator. I was doing an internship with one of the local cities Fire Marshals and I just fell for the critical thinking and the whole aspect of the job and wanted to pursue it as a career and want to be the best candidate possible.

    Thank you for any help,

    I was shooting for the public side but at the end of the day either one I guess.
