  • Certifications/EMT

    I am in middle of the background investigation stage of the hiring process and was wondering if some of my other certificates would help with being chosen. My certs are:

    Advanced EMT
    Rope Rescue Certified
    State Certified Rope Rescue Instructor
    State Certified EMS Instructor
    Haz-Mat Technician
    Industrial Firefighter endorsement

    None of them will mean a thing in the background process unless you are applying for a job that includes those exact disciplines.

    Most police jobs do not.
    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      They won't have any impact on your BI and, in all probability, will not mean anything in the hiring process. Use the search function for "EMT." This topic has been discussed a number of times.

        No.

        You are in background now. We want to be sure you do not have scumbag qualities or be an embrassment to LE in the future on 20/20 or 60 Minutes. Be patient ..

              Haha thanks. Just hoping working in emergency services will help. Besides that I know they have pushed to get some officers trained as EMTs, I only know this because I taught the classes.

                The only thing all that fire-rescue training will do is show that you have a predilection for sleeping on duty.

                J/K - good luck!

                    Sad part is my certs are part of a secondary on my primary job. Typically I work work work and as soon as the tone goes out I'm called into action.
