      He won't even take the test. He will "fast track" and go into LPC and whiskey side.

            so they will put him right to the whisky side? he doesnt have his national.. only state.. he needs to get his national but instead of taking 7 weeks worth of classes of stuff he already knows will they let him just test out of it?

              No, only way to skip is with national I believe. Which was said several posts up.

                    Here is how it works. Just graduated in December. If he is an NREMT-B he will fast track. If he is state cert. already he will get the opportunity to test out so he can fast track. He will want to fast track believe me. I went all 16 weeks and had enough of that place. Many people stay there for much longer than that for several reasons.

                            When he gets there he will be at reception. This is where people can get hosed at Sam. I was lucky to be there for just a day and a half. Some people get stuck there for a whole month. He doesn't need to worry about who to ask really. Just his cadre most likely and there will be a lady when they get there ask who is NREMT Cert and State Certified when they are processing him into his company. He shouldn't have a problem just as long as he can stay awake through the 10 million briefs that are given before you begin training. His fast track can also vary. It could be a 7 week jump or just a 3. It just depends on where the next company is.

                              ok ill make sure i tell him.. that would suck if reception was a whole month cuz that adds on to the time your there doesnt it? as long as he tests out of emt wouldnt they just put him into a company thats going to the whiskey side which would make it a 7 week jump?
