Released Friday, 6th November 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
We’ll wager there isn’t a firefighter in the fire service who isn’t an advocate of training. But when you call that training “higher education” you start to get somewhat mixed reactions. Make higher education a prerequisite for some promotions, and now you’ve probably got some real disagreement.

What’s the correct balance between experience, training, and formal education? How do you measure experience against the other two? Which of them, if any, are indispensable? And if you’ve got formal education, what are you doing with it?

This episode had to be recorded remotely, so forgive some deficiencies with the sound quality. But it did mean that we have video to accompany our recording, so check us out on YouTube as well as all of the podcast listening platforms.
