Become what your Departments needs. Crush the minimum standard! 

I've got FF1, FF2, and HAZMAT Ops as well.

In my opinion, there are FAR better and more useful courses to take before FF2, whether they are ProBoard/Nat'l Certs or not.  EVOC and Pump Ops are absolutely necessary and any decent firefighter should be taking those. Ropes and extrication courses are also highly valuable.

FF2 focuses a lot on more officer-ish tasks and a lot on foam.  I'm not saying it isn't useful, but I'd take other courses before this.

Hope this helps!
