So are you saying that those of us with Emergency Medical Responder CPR/AED-HCP from the Canadian Red Cross now have to go out and do a weekend course for standard first aid as well?! That sounds ridiculous considering the amount of time spent doing first aid in the EMR course...

What you have is exactly what they're asking for. You're good to go!

just to clarify for all, when I said I had heard that there were "thousands of applicants last year", i had been given that phrase, not a number, by a member of the HR team at Toronto Fire, but AXEONTHEROOF is right when he says that I wasn't given any indication as to weather they were considered qualified or not.

my bad.

I've contacted HR regarding the EMR certification, and they didn't really appear to have any definition in regards to what an "EMR" certification fell under. All I was really told was to contact Red Cross, and ask them, to which they didn't know either. I'm not sure if anyone else is in the same situation as me, but I have an EMR certificate, and am licensing within another Canadian province, that wasn't completed through the red cross. is this void, and is there some unknown expiry date attached to the Certificate?

i don't think anyone has mentioned this but it looks like they are changing to hiring process as well:

"An application process will open for each hiring period. You must apply to each hiring period separately. You will not be able to transfer your application between hiring periods. If you were unsuccessful or not selected for a hiring process you must reapply; your application will not migrate from one hiring period to another. Successful submission of an application does not guarantee employment.

Our on-going application process for the Operations Firefighter job call will generally occur through three (3) hiring periods annually: January/February (Winter), May/June (Spring) and September/October (Fall). "


So I guess this is good that we can apply up to 3 times per year, but a dramatic change in that they seem like they won't be keeping a list for a year+

Yeah, by the sounds of that, there won't be any lists at all. Some pro's and cons really
