Meet Active Firefighter, Brent C

Victorian Firefighter Recruitment November 2019 CFA MFB 2020 Recruit Courses FRV

G'day. My name is Brent and I am an active Firefighter. After becoming a Firefighter, I developed a massive interest in the Fire Services Recruitment and Selection Processes. I've been working since 2007 to learn everything about how Fire Services Recruitment works. I've tested and refined proven methods to help people get the edge over the competition. Today, over 300 of my former students are living their Firefighter dream.

Before becoming a firefighter I was a Prison Guard for a number of years, and in the military prior to that. All these jobs require a seasoned knowledge of the recruitment and selection processes which I have mastered over the years — being a successful applicant myself in areas where many fail.



Aviation Firefighter

I found Brent’s website very useful and it offered me exactly what I was struggling to find. His products helped improve and develop my skills in spatial, mechanical, and verbal reasoning.These are the skills and traits that helped me get into the fire service. I definitely recommend Brent’s products for anyone wanting to develop the necessary skills required for the Fire Service.

I've been a Bondi Lifeguard for a while and we work in some tricky situations in the community quite often, but I've wanted to get into the fire services for a while now. Brent is really helping me to prepare for this with his Fire Recruitment Australia website, I've gotten a lot of information from it. Check it out guys, it's unreal!  —  Trent was employed recently by Fire and Rescue NSW
