Ask any employed firefighter and he or she might tell you that the training never stops! On-the-job firefighter training varies by department and city and state. Most fire departments train their own recruits in 10-week to 5-month programs. Training may take place at the station, at a fire academy, or on-site-in classes or in simulation exercises. The training must start somewhere too, before you become hired. Taking fire department entrance exams could be the most important training you receive. Let our fire fighting questions and study guide, that is written by a staff of nationally certified Firefighters with over 20 years of experience, assist your with your career firefighter endeavors. Our questions are similar to those on real firefighter exams. Check out our firefighter sample questions for proof. Participate, be aggressive, and be proactive on your way to the top of the firefighter hiring list.
