thanks for the info!
im looking to get my DZ license.
Does anyone else know anything about this course?
any feedback or information?
Hope this helps. Take a look.
as a fire truck training provider by a number of fire departments when I was doing research for my Ontario DZ Licence. They provide training on actual fire trucks with active firefighters as mentors in the jump seat. I have met firefighters that trained at this school a decade ago and they had a worthwhile experience then as well. It seems that there are numerous options for a DZ Licence on this forum. I did my homework, asked tons of questions and went with positive word of mouth feedback from former students of this school to make my final decision......
Good Luck !
I would recommend to anyone that they take his course. 100% worth it
All the time you spend being cheap, and the running around, bugging half the province, and you believe you are better off? I did complete my course through Safelane, and it was more than informative and I didn't have to spend two days in a classroom on air brakes alone. Surely you are not trying to get a job on the fire department? What are you going to submit with your resume? your rental agreement. lol
Congradulations on your new dz licence, I guess we will be competing on the next recruit drive somewhere!
All the best
We didn't bother the province as you put it, rather we had 4 responses from local professional truck drivers and ultimately went with a local recently retired trainer, who I paid 30 or 40 buck an hour for his time and professional advice and opinions. With the amount of seat time we had I was able to have him comfortable and confident on rural roads, highways, congested city streets and even in tight busy parking lots. By the time he tested the circle check was automatic and the test itself was a cake walk, even the MTO guy commented on how well prepared he was considering he didn't already have a D licence. What ever works ...works. The point of these forums is to share ideas and opinions and that's what I was doing, not trying to show a cheap way of doing things, just an alternate way of doing it.
So to answer your question no you wont be seeing me at the next job call, Im already on the job, but you may meet up with him, and just for the record no there wont be a rental agreement in his portfolio, but there will be a DZ, of course the firstaid and CPR, his Pre-Service(with honours) as well as his OFM certificates, so he is well on his way.
One question though, of the ten posts you have on the forum all ten refer back to .. or have links to this particular driving school, please tell me its not a round about way to disguise advertising on what is supposed to be an impartial forum.
