  • DOD Fire Academy

    Hello Everyone I leave for Army Basic Training on April 22nd and then I'm off to Goodfellow AFB for the DOD Fire Academy. I was looking to hear from anyone who has been through the Academy Recently, and also I wanted to know Do the Certs you earn through the academy transfer to your state (Florida) or how does that work? Thank you everyone.

      NO.

      DOD Certs translated into civilian language= IFSAC/Pro-Board Certification, which the State of Florida DOES NOT accept; however you CAN challenge their written and practical exam but it is very very hard to do and they really put anyone who does this through the wringer.

          How does one become DOD certified without being in the military and having your branch send you to the DOD academy. All the government agencies that I have seen hire civilians who already are DOD certified. I applied to a federal agency with only state level FF1, FF2, EMT and a whole list of other certifications and never heard anyting back.

              Were the certifications IFSAC or state? DoD recognizes IFSAC certs.
