I've been taking classes out of town on the weekends lately and I found out that half of the classes departments don't pay them for training. They do pay for there gas though. I guess I thought more departments paid for their members training. My department does pay for our class and the hours we've got into the class, guess I'm lucky compared to a lot of others in my area. Anybody else in the same shoes here?

Yes our dept. pays us to be in class but with comp time. They pay for our classes, room, board, rental car if needed and plane tickets if needed.
We "might" get the class paid for but that's about it...unless it is something special like the Chief's show or the National Fire Academy and there are special training classes involved.....Paul
