I have personally taken classes from IFSI instructors. This is quality training from quality firefighters. As for info for new firefighters or aspiring firefighters, there isn't much. Because so many fire departments have different hiring practices you should contact your local FD or a FD that you are planning to test for. With Fire Fighter Exam we have done everything we can to cater to all possible tests. Be prepared for civil service exams with math, spelling, vocabulary, and mechanical aptitude tests or exams. Other tests will likely include basic firefighting questions with EMT questions. Good Luck!
