DFES Firefighter Recruitment Update 2014

Just wanted to give everyone an update about the Western Australian fire service recruitment process.

DFES has added a driving validation component to their selection process, just something to be aware of if you are preparing, not something to worry about.

I have included the details for you below.

WA Fire Service Recruitment, Driving Validation = Driving a Heavy Rigid vehicle, the purpose behind this validation serves to assist DFES in determining a candidate’s general ability in driving a vehicle. Candidates are rated only, no failures unless road rules are broken.

As it says above no failures unless road rules are broken, This would be a great place to start sharpening up your skills to ensure you don’t fail this step.

I will look to ad more information once I have researched further.

Please feel free to leave comments or send me any questions.

After becoming a Firefighter, I developed a massive interest in the Fire Services Recruitment and Selection Processes. I've been in the fire service 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.
