I have successfully completed the UF CCP program, passed it, took the IBSC test and have joined the ranks of CCP-C.

... only to find that we really aren't sure how our CCT program is even going to go. Good ol' political red tape again. No matter what happens, I learned a lot from the experience.

Well I feel like a ping pong ball. Getting off at my normal station 20, had a shift exchange for a guy at St 10, but because they're full crew and 20 was short, was expecting to be able to stay. Nope, got sent to St 8, and meanwhile a guy from St30 got sent (driving past 8) to go to 20 instead...

Do you get mileage?

There is mileage, but the form is like super complicated and has to be done only at some weird specific time .

And they'd only cover the miles from 10 to 8, not starting point of 20, because they only cover miles for changes to your assignment, if you pick up a shift, even if you're getting off another, it's considered part if your choice to pick up said shift

It was a hard course but I enjoyed it a lot. Definitely would recommend. They were also able to help me navigate the peculiar requirements that (surprise surprise) only the state of California has regarding clinical hours and that was very much appreciated. The hospital (UF Shands) was accommodating and I ended up doing things like shadowing the medical students & residents when they were doing their rounds. Learned a lot of stuff that way. :)

Glad to hear it.

Who let Mr Brown back in here? I thought his past behavior would have been more by than enough to earn him a permanent ban.

Going to back to being a boot firefighter after several years as an engineer. I know it'll be worth it, but not looking forward to playing the game at 40.

I’ve officially accepted a job offer outside of Hall. A little bittersweet after 13 years, but definitely the right move. May post more deets later…
