How to Pass The Firefighter Test

There are quite a number of written tests that are involved in the process of selecting firefighters. Normally the design of these tests is that of multiple choice questions and their main aim is to test whether the candidate has the required aptitude and ability to succeed as a firefighter.

Usually, the tests are administered in a Fire Service establishment or a local test center. They require approximately 3 hours to finish. The good thing about it is that all the firefighter test requirements are sent to you before the day of sitting the test.

The firefighter test is normally divided into the following two categories:

– Ability Tests
This will test your ability to work with numbers, to understand information relayed to you and your level of situational awareness and problem solving skills.

The written firefighter tests are split into two different categories as follows:

– The National Firefighter Questionnaire
The main purpose of this questionnaire is to prompt the candidate to give information on his or her behavior and style. The information that is provided in this questionnaire combined with the results that you get from the other test are used to make a decision as to whether or not you can be a good firefighter.

To be able to pass this test, it is imperative that you adequately prepare yourself. You have to get into that room knowing exactly what you are going to do there and what is required to you. Before you go into that room, ask yourself the following questions:

– Why did the Fire Fighting Department choose to assess my ability in these specific areas?

– What is it exactly that they expect to get from the successful candidates?

Take time to brainstorm the answers to this question. Ensure that the answers that you go with are specific to you and not generic ones. Once you get the answers, go ahead to draw a plan on how you are actually going to achieve the answers. Remember that for you to succeed in getting into the firefighting department you have to give them what they want. Thus it is imperative that you work on finding out how best you can deliver what they are looking for the moment you find out what they are looking for.
