Hi crew I’m new to this site and hoping someone has had experience with Lateral Entry into US fire departments?

Currently I am a 12 year career fire and rescue firefighter in Australia and my wife wants to move back to the USA.

I hold national Certificates I, II, III and IV Public Sector Fire and Safety.

I would greatly appreciate any information regarding converting/ RPL (recognise prior learning) my current skills to NFPA standards.

If this is possible, does anyone know of a state fire department that offers Lateral Entry employment?


Thank you!
