I have some EMT certifications. Will I still go through an entire academy?

First of all, if your EMT certification is from anywhere other than the state of North Carolina, you must be able to get reciprocity by completing a Reciprocity Application at NCOSFM.  

If the fire portion of the academy is scheduled first, it is likely that you would go into Operations after the fire portion is completed, but this would be need to be discussed and scheduled with the Assistant Chief of Training.
