Entry Level Exam Prep
So, you want to be a firefighter. You are applying for positions and want to do your best.
Why do I need this?
Do you know what it takes? Do you know how to land your dream job? We can get you started from scratch, or prepare you for a specific exam.
Did you know most firefighters took dozens of exams for departments near and far before finally getting hired? During the entry level exam process, departments will rank all applicants based on the criteria they are seeking and put them on a list. A list may have 200 people on it, with only 4 open positions. The top 4 people will get hired right away, and everyone else gets to sit on the list waiting for a position to open. These lists don’t last forever though, they are established with expiration dates, 2 years, for example. If your number doesn’t get called by the time the list expires, that’s the end of the line. You’ve “died on the list”.
If you have your heart set on getting a job at that one department, you better score high, or another opportunity may not come along for years.
That is why preparation is so important. You want to know what is going to be on the test. You want to know what will be expected of you physically. You want to know what interview questions they will ask you and how to answer them. You want to know how to be what they are looking for. We will show you.
Set up an appointment with us, wether you are already scheduled for an exam, or you are just starting to entertain the idea of becoming a firefighter. Give yourself a leg up on the competition, because there is a lot of competition.
What should I expect?
We will give you a mock interview, and evaluate you. We will give you personalized instruction on areas you need to improve. We will also give you sample questions from written tests.
Service usually takes place over several sessions.
