Actually Ringer might have a point Robert.
You should see your Traning Officer with your brigade and get a nomination form in as soon as possible
(not to sure when the next one is being done but if they have a few people nominating they might run one soon)
And from memory isn't your training officer actualy a Plantation Trainer anyway so he would probably even take the course
Or am I mixing brigades up again?? Can't quite remember but I would certainly get your nomination form in as quick as possible and thn you might get that one done quickly

I'll be looking into that Katrina but the course has to be held in Late Sept or the first weekend in October as our next brigade meeting is on the 08/10/2008 and i'd love to have my certificate presented to me then rather than later

Well there ya go no Plantation, of course the timber companies aren't going to give ya a job. In fact if you been applying all these years and haven't had it they probably more likely to consider you to be a nusiance and a pain in the neck rather than determined to get a job.

And to be quite honest Robert as someone who has done a lot of hiring in the past I used to sit down with all the applications and do a quick run through the qualifications and the one s who all met the minimum requirements went into a pile, another sift through to see if anyone had working experience in a similar area and they joined that pile and the ones who met all the job criteria went in there of course, anyone who couldn't do that missed out. Sounds like what Bill said it is a course you really need to do, better go and have a chat to your Brigade Training Officer because I am sure he will be able to set you straight on that one (I'm sure he has the experience in that sort of area as well Robert so would be the perfect person for you to talk to)

Since when did all these places requior prior firefighting knowlage? i thought they all did in house training?

otherwise their possible recruitment pool would be quite small?

As with any job,  "2 years Minimum Experience"....Where do you get on the job experience when this is your first job you may apply for.  :/

Its about Training so why hassel ya Captain about it, isn't the training officer supposed to handle training issues.  Sounds like you don't like your training officer. I'm sure he's not as bad as you think.

it's called starting at the bottom of the food chain

but I guess to do that you'd have to swallow your pride...something I don't think megalomaniacs are accustomed to! :roll:

Nah im pointing out, theres lot of jobs asking for previous experience, while there is hardly any jobs that are ground level for a career in certain sectors.

UPDATE: I have got a nomination form off of my brigade captain and filled out the personal details/course name and will be handing it to the Group Training Officer so he can look for a plantation fire fighting course for me to undertake
