Do I get any extra points for a college degree or college credits?

A college degree is not required to apply for the position of Firefighter/EMT for the City of Marietta; however, college course work in fire science, fire technology or public administration can improve your performance on the written test and in the oral interview, and may serve you well in future promotional assessments.
