If I was you what I would do is contact one of your local volunteer fire departments and explain your situation to them. A lot of these departments have old bunker gear that they no longer use and is no longer serviceable (I know we do, but we're in Alberta). Some of them might give it to you or at ...

Yes I agree, a bit more context would help us understand your situation better. Usually a school will give you access to whatever they can right up to the exam in the hopes of helping you pass. It is in their best interest to ensure you pass.

So your company has "one size fits all" PPE and they don't consider this a problem? In my opinion that definitely says a lot about a company. I realize that trying to conform to every NFPA standard out there is so cost prohibitive that even most large career departments can't do it, but there are so...

I'm looking at the NFPA option right now. It looks like a good option for those of us that don't have the time to go to an in-person class and don't want to wait for the once a year intake of the MB program. You mentioned that it is not IFSAC (or ProBoard) certified. Since IFSAC/ProBoard certify to ...

I think using the IFSTA Essentials textbook is a good idea. If you're just looking for a quick knowledge refresher that you can do with a bunch of your fellow firefighters than your idea of flashcards should work fine. I'd go through the chapter quizzes and maybe some of the definitions in the back ...

You're welcome. I have to correct myself on one thing though, the JIBC degree is not entirely online; it's blended format I believe.
