West Mids Success 1


Recommended Posts

So after 12 years of trying, 6 applications ( and a 7 month wait since i was told i was sucessfull at interview ) today i had my induction as a trainee firefighter for West Mids. Im truly made up, especially as its my home service

Training starts end of July and its mostly down to this site ( and the old one of course ) that im here. That and the members here, Carl, Steve, TandA, Firestorm, Noddy ( not to mention the endless PMs ) JamieJet, StevieA, Lizzy,  TrainHardFightEasy ( once again endless PMs ) and a whole host of other members that arent here anymore ( or yet ) so thank you to all
I joined this forum in 2009 and have spent every spare minute reading up on topics, not just recruitment but everything in order to understand the job. Ive applied for services, failed various steps, brushed myself down and immediatley returned here to see what i couldve done better ( and passed on the knowledge ) So those that are still trying to get in, apart from going to live on a fire statio, you will not find a better source of information ANYWHERE. Just keep at it, by being here youre already one up on the competition
And i will be sticking around Carl ?

Well done mate I know you have worked very hard to achieve your dream.

Like I've said to JonnyArgue, please don't be shy when our paths inevitably cross and be sure to come over and say hello.

Thanks everyone, i genuinely dont think i'd be posting this if it wasnt for this site and the members on here

Noddy i was at Solihull last night trying to log on to the ecademy site. Had no luck but the duty watch got some cakes regardless, looks like i picked the wrong night to pop in ?
