BECOMING A FLORIDA FIREFIGHTER
Deciding to enroll at the Coral Springs Regional Institute of Public Safety to pursue your dream of becoming a Firefighter/EMT/Paramedic in the State of Florida is a huge step. It can be an overwhelming journey if not planned out properly. To help you succeed we will provide information on a career path that may work best for you.
We offer all the required courses that you will need in order to become a successful candidate for a position as a Firefighter in Florida. Most agencies located in the South East (Broward, Dade & Palm Beach) will require candidates to be Firefighter/Paramedic certified as a minimum however other regions will hire Firefighter/EMT’s or just Firefighters.
This means that you will need to complete EMT, Paramedic and Firefighter I & II and become State certified in all three courses. This can be accomplished at CSRIPS. Now you need to decide whether to start with the medical courses, EMT and then Paramedic, or the Fire course, Firefighter I & II. The information we provide can help you determine which will be best for you. Please review each course to assist with making the best decision for you to be successful, remember this process can take up to two (2) years to complete.
