Sean Baldwin – Career Firefighter
As a TRP consultant I have been able to re-create exact sample questions that you will encounter during your fire fighter recruitments. I have successfully passed a number of entrance exams of varying styles and formats. Each department that you will be applying to is unique, however there are similar aptitudes that are required and expected with every fire department. During my endeavour to earn a position as a full time professional fire fighter I started out as many do graduating from a pre-service fire training program. This program gave me the basics of fire fighting but not the skill sets to pass the entrance exams. TRP gives you what the colleges and fire certifications leave out. I have successfully earned a full time position with local IAFF 1253 and consult TRP with what the industry expects of new recruits. I have incorporated into the TRP preparation program the material you will need to give you the confidence and abilities to dominate any fire fighting recruitment entrance exam.
