Hey I have a couple questions about currency of qualifications and how they relate to applying for Fed fire positions. I was a wildland firefighter for a number of seasons before switching over to another job for about 6 years ago. I am considering a move back to wildland but have no idea if all of the quals I had before are still valid for employment purposes (ie meeting the minimum quals in the vacancy announcement) since I have not been refreshed/pack tested in a while. For example, if a vacancy announcement said that the minimum qual was a FFT1 does it matter this qualification has expired or does it only matter that I had the qualification at one time in the past? Do the USFS and BLM have different rules for this?
