it seems like very rare people do this course, im applying for the first diploma at the mo but they said the course mite not run (not enough people), so i might have to do a random bect first before i can progres to the national diploma
just wondering what the course like? if u done or doing this course what do u hope to do after it?
no definitely not. i cant say that ive ever tried to, though im sure you would have to undergo medical and fitness tests along with probably a few more. it would give to a foot on the ladder though and show that you have thought about this career path for a while, and through studying the diploma you will have gained lots of useful infomation, skills etc that you could apply to this position.

could passing the National Diploma in Public Services get you a Guaranteed place in a fire service?
There are no guarantees with it. It will give you a good understanding of what is required to join the public services though and help prepare you for applying. For the Record, I did the BTEC in 2003-2005 and I'm currently in my 3rd year at uni, studying Law. I graduate in July and I've applied to the police, got my final interview on Tuesday.
