Airport Fire Service Recruitment


Increasingly in recent years Aptitude Tests are being used as part of the selection process for many careers. One such career is the Airport Fire Service where the test determines whether or not applicants are cleared to the interview stage of the selection process. Performance of candidates in aptitude tests can be improved in a number of ways.

These include exposure to tests (i.e. seeing tests in advance), by practice and by being taught good test technique. Throughout the course good test technique will be taught and developed.

Types of Tests Covered

Due to the Airport Fire Service not having recruited for a number of years the exact nature of the tests has not yet been made available. However TestPreparations will cover on the course a broad range of tests usually associated with such competitions. If the exact type of tests are made available before the course then the course content will be changed to better reflect this.

Emphasis will be placed on tests similar to those used in previous competitions for the selection of Airport Fire Fighter Trainees and on tests, which assess skills relevant to the position of Trainee Airport Fire Fighter along with tests used by Fire Brigades abroad.

If for any reason the Airport Fire Brigade Aptitude Test changes then Test Preparations will make such amendments as are necessary to our preparation courses to ensure that we continue to deliver the highest quality programme possible.
