    Wisconsin is an IFSAC state.

    I am having a hard time understanding why people seem to feel the need to point out, however incorectly, that getting training prior to employment is a negative. In the area I am employed in some departments require nothing other than you are breathing to apply, some require FF1 and EMT, some go as far as to require FF2, Paramedic, and 60 hours of college credits...JUST TO APPLY!

    My advice get the training, or at least check and see what is common locally as to prehire requirements.

    Not everyone does it this way, especially out west and down south in smaller communities, who want qualified people with certs in hand that they can put right to work.

    Depends. Here in Michigan, only the largest FDs will pay to send a new hire to the academy. Most require FFII and paramedic at time of application or time of hire. Eligibility/hiring order is based on civil service test scores.

    Michigan does not accept IFSAC though, and no one is hiring here anyway.

    That would be way to difficult.
