What do you think of taking fire control classes at a community college?

Um, you should be taking classes in fire engineering or fire science if they are offered. To become a fireman you must have a high school diploma and it is recommended that you have some sort of higher level of learning education. If you can get an associate degree in fire science then you may have a greater chance of landing the job. Anyways, to become a fireman, you will have to pass a written and physical test and then you will be trained at a center or academy. So taking fire controlling classes doesn't really help you unless you can get a degree out of it unless you count it as an elective.

The big bucks come in when you are a certified to be paramedic. I heard those firemen/paramedics make close to 6 figures. I also know that competition is fierce.

I have a nephew thats a fireman. He went to college for some courses, after that it took him about 3 years to get hired. No one was looking. He told me the tests are no joke.
