Fire Service Recruitment Fitness Tests

Good day guys! Brent Clayton here from firecruitmentaustralia.com and today’s subject will be about fitness testing for fire service recruitment around Australia, in particular the beep test. I wanted to cover the beep test today because I’ve been receiving a lot of questions about it. In particular in relation to the New South Wales fire and rescue service and the fact that they’ve removed it from their testing process.

The beep test is used in almost every fire service around Australia apart from the New South Wales fire and rescue service. However it is still important for New South Wales as you’ll be required to perform at a similar cardiovascular level to what you would in the beep test in here. Although New South Wales doesn’t do it or say in Australia, Victoria, DFES and all the rest of the guys, it is still important to be crossing half that level of fitness and it’s a good measurable way of improving your fitness. So you know where you’re at in a cardiovascular level.

So my tip is to still try it first, get a minimum of nine seats. Try for ten seats if you can. That way if you fall ill or you get a small injury or something, you can still chop on the day and pass the test, and you don’t fall short because the services acquired ruthless and the fact that if you can’t come on that day, so see you next year then.  I hope these tips has been helpful for you, if it has or if you have any questions please leave a comment below and be sure to give us a like on the Facebook button. Thanks for watching I’m Brent Clayton and this is firerecruitmentaustralia.com.
