I am interested in beginning the process of training and getting the necessary credentials to be considered, and ultimately hired as a firefighter. I live in South Florida, and have been told different processes from different people in regards to where to begin and what truly needs to be done. One of my good buddies is planning on enrolling at AMA Miami in spring for EMT, and I may do the same. Can anyone breakdown in fairly straightforward terms the process to become qualified (and ultimately employeed) by a fire department? I understand that driving to West Palm, etc. is within the realm of possibility by the way.. THANK YOU!
