I'm just wondering, what's everyones guidelines to getting SCBA certified in their station ? when I joined my first company all we needed to do was put the pack on, show them what each thing did and breath air... now when I came to my other department we have to go through a whole pack test/course. which i think i shouldn't have to do since i'm already pack qualified...

Our company is all volli but our officership, thankfully, is really big on training. FF II is the standard minimum qual for us. That being said, I say take the course. You have nothing to loose. Only something to learn which may come in real handy for you or a brother some day.
Sorry to bust your chops, but if your new chief does not want to recognize the old chief's certification, then the old cert. isn't worth a hill of beans. the AHJ, authority having jurisdiction, has the sole responsibility in making sure you are qualified. Suck it up and look at this as a chance to shine in your new department and show them that you do know what you are talking about.
