Default Hello Painters I'm New To Your Site!!

Hello everyone, my name is aaron and i live in orange county southern california. I am a young aspiring firefighter candidate who is stuck in a competitive job market with a crummy economy not helping very much so i've decided to keep my options open and painting sounds interesting!

I was wondering what courses/classes/schools,etc. you guys the pros recommended for preparing me for the C-33 test. I'd love to hear from you all if you'd like you can shoot me an email with any valuble info to whats available in Southern California.

Welcome from southern Cali

You need to work for a painting contractor for about 5 years. Or, You could pay me and i will teach you on my job sites, since i am near you and all. I would give you my PT deal at 200 bucks an hr.

Hello Flames, What kind of painting experience do you currently have that makes you lean towards this market?

That's awesome Painting Flames! You're skipping an apprenticeship program, and going straight to contractor/ business man. Usually, you would need some references from a company you,ve worked for, but there's plenty of fast track programs like the following link. http://catradetest.com/c-33-painting-and-decorating.htm. Good luck!

I'm glad they don't make firefighters that way.

Welcome!
Gabe (ewingpaint) isn't kidding about having to work for a contractor first. I believe Cali is the same as Utah in that regard. In addition to passing the test, having insurance/bond and some other items, you have to have W2 wages showing experience. Gabe can tell you for sure.
Check here for more info.
