Dublin Fire Brigade Emergency Services Controller

Aptitude Test Preparation Course


Increasingly in recent years Aptitude Tests are being used as part of the selection process for many careers. One such career is the 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

All tests appropriate to this recruitment will be covered.

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

If for any reason the Dublin Fire Brigade Aptitude Test changes 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.
