I currently live in miami,fl and doing all the paper work to get my mmc, but at the mean time i would like to get organized and informed while waiting instead of running around once i do get my mmc. how are the employment in s.florida like? i am going in as an entry level os, and i would not mind going out for a long periods of time. i see in other posts 28/28 14/14 also 120 days max so far. im not married or family so it wont bother me as much.
also what advice would anyone give out before entering like should i get qualified for first aid / cpr , any other certification that i should get that would help me alot. also should i go to the union in port everglades or get into a private company. i used to be in the u.s coast guard auxiliary 2 years ago, due to economic hard ship had to leave but thinking of going back since it might help and also the cg give out free training and certifications. any ideas, advice for entry level?
