I am certified as a Firefighter II in another state, can I transfer my certificate to Florida?
A Firefighter Minimum Standards Equivalency Examination is offered to individuals who have received training in another state (or country), that is evaluated as equivalent to that required in Florida's Firefighter Minimum Standards Course. To determine an individual's eligibility for the Equivalency Examination, a two-part application process is required. The Preliminary Equivalency Application (DFS-K4-1309) is submitted to the Challenge Review Board, along with supporting documentation. Such documentation should be a transcript, by subject, of the hours spent in initial training. Upon review and approval of the training documentation by the Challenge Review Board, an application for the Equivalency Examination and Certification will be sent to the applicant. The Equivalency Examination is offered four times a year at the Florida State Fire College in Ocala. Please refer to the Testing Schedule for test dates.  http://www.fldfs.com/sfm/bfst/Standard/StdTstSc.htm
