Attention Firefighter Trainees and EMT/Paramedic Candidates - Test Results & Next Steps

3 Comments

ENROLLMENT PERIOD

During January 2010, Portland Fire & Rescue opened recruitment for the positions of Firefighter Trainee and Firefighter EMT/Paramedic.  PF&R accepted 2,500 applications for the position of Firefighter Trainee and 1,500 for the position of Firefighter EMT/Paramedic in little under one week’s time!

WRITTEN, MULTIPLE-CHOICE, VIDEO-BASED TEST

The Firefighter Trainee and EMT/Paramedic candidates whose applications where successfully accepted where invited to take the written, multiple-choice, video-based test on Thursday, February 18, 2010.  Over 3,000 candidates arrived ready to take the 2 ½ hour test at the Convention Center.  The test consisted of four components including human interaction, mechanical aptitude, math, and reading.

 

 

NEXT STEP FOR FIREFIGHTER TRAINEE & FIREFIGHTER EMT/PARAMEDIC CANDIDATES

By March 12, 2010, letters will be sent out in the mail to eligible Firefighter Trainee and Firefighter EMT/Paramedic candidates who previously took the written, multiple-choice, video-based test.

Can you please explain how the firefighter trainee tests were scored? The morning session was not allowed to finish one section of the test and I would like to know how that impacted scores. Thank you.

I was just wondering if it is possible to review the score of the test that I took on feburary 18th, and how I did on each section? If so how?
Thanks.

Thanks
