    What are you talking about?

        Each department is different.

        Some VFD look for warm bodies and have very little training.

        Others require their personnel to certify at the Firefighter1-2 level within a certain time frame.

        Career departments either run their own academies or send their probies to the State or County fire academy.

        The Massachusetts Fire Academy offers field programs to call and volunteer fire departments for training and certification.

            Best way to find out

            Go to your local FD and ask how they train. I don't know if you're a FF or looking to become one, but if you want to know how training is done, you gotta go local and see how they do it. Every FD is different in their approach. You can also contact your training academies in your area, if you know of some.

            Good luck !
