I know this came up before, IBSC is looking for beta testers for the CCP-C exam. Good way to save $200 if you're willing to test in the next month and don't need instant results. Can't remember who was interested the last time...@StCEMT maybe?
I should have waited for this. Oh well.

I got a random facebook message from a lawyer asking if I'm the same so and so that works/worked at (insert ems agency).*


Seems sketchy.

I kind of want to do it just cause there's like 7,000 people with FP-C, there are only like 800 people worldwide with both.
Yes, this was also an indirect motivating factor for me. Though I didn’t know the numbers, I knew there were significantly less CCP’s than FP’s.

Plus, being the first at my agency and company to be dual-certified I thought would be neat. I just got my updated flight patch that reflects both. Lol, it’s a bit of a tight fit, but it’s kinda cool to see, IMO.

What’s the benefit of CCP over FP? Seems like the curriculum is quite similar but FP gets the edge because it has the flight physiology?

Basically that's it. There is no reason to hold both beyond just wanting too.
I just did a redline in Word for the handbooks - looks like the FP-C outline is more detailed, but they do appear substantially the same. Kinda interesting. I wonder why they don't just have a single CCP exam and have an F or G tag.

Ugh. We just had a bath yesterday, at least it's not muddy water this time.

That's his "cool off" pool which apparently also substitutes as a bathtub and a water bowl.
Did the same thing for my rott/lab and dobe/husky. Unfortunately they thought it was a big chew toy

Yea, we had talked about it a while back. I may take it fluff the resume. I don't really have any good options to regularly utilize that right now, but it would force me to study again.

Not at all. That deserves a solid few days away.

At least the extrication went smooth considering the roof was resting on top of the door panels.

So we’re getting a company wide raise starting next week or so. From $15 an hour to $18 an hour. It’s an obvious attempt to keep the few people here from leaving.

$3 is $3. Enjoy the increase til you find greener pastures. Perspective, man.

I had to “LOL” at your post because for such an educated guy such as yourself, the answer seems almost too easy: money.

Finally I'm back to a 3-car, 3 driver family. Briefly we became a 4-car, 3 driver family... While it's not exactly nice to be back to paying for a 2nd car, at least it's not horrible!

Hahaha, I was thinking the same as you guys. I just got my FP-C in March. I was thinking since I studied so hard for it and just finished orientation with my current company, I could take CCP for fun since the test is a lot cheaper. I wonder how many of us are going to take it and not be under that 1,000 dual cert group? They won't tell you how you did until October.

I’m not complaining. I’m just aware that they aren’t giving everyone a raise out of the kindness of their hearts.
