Im currently a Crew Leader (pull up LT) on my paid on call department. We are doing a lt test comming up in a few weeks and kinda worried about it to be honest ive tested three times and people with less time on the job have gotten it over me. its kinda frustrating but I try to keep a level head about it. My crew that I took over at the beginning of the month after some personel changes are pushing me to take the test because they like my leadership style and outlook, but to be honest I want to take the test but dont know if I can mentaly handle another let down or another person just out of the recruit academy getting the promotion. what are your thoughts?
The training is the only thing that im struggling with. the times dont really work with people that have a full time job, as well as having to make training 4 times a month once each week. I understand its a "volunteer" department but that still seems a bit excessive but im at least trying to make 2 a month out of the 4 due to finances
Yea we are a paid on call department and actually have assigned shifts so im there every shift as the officer (Crew Leader) which is once every 9 days and I do training with my guys according to the quarterly training outline, so training is being done just not on their actual training nights due to not getting off work in time for the during the week trainings.
nervously waiting on scores from officers test this past weekend... was kinda a cluster they sent out the list of what was included in the test a week before the test with no one having most of the books, still kinda nervous for the outcome
