    My quwestion would be how many departents woul hire an ARFF firefighter with a certification but no experience when there are more than likely a glut of experienced ex-USAF ARFF personnel coming out of the Aire Force or other branches?

    In my experience, most departments train members to ARFF after they have spent some time on the floor as an engine or truck-level firefighter as compared to hiring them as such. And yes, obviously many ARFF only airport departments may be exception.
    Alot of Private company's are looking for FF's with the ARFF cert. WHackenhutt, Sallyport, Raytheon to name the few I know of. Less training time spent once they are wheels down on location.

      Mississippi State Fire Academy offers a great ARFF class.
