FIREFIGHTER ENTRY-LEVEL (FF-EL) TESTS

Know which candidates will be successful on the job before you hire them. Our entry-level fire tests assess the knowledge, skills, abilities and personal characteristics (KSAPs) necessary for success. No prior fire training or experience is assumed of candidates taking any of our entry-level fire tests.
