Here's What They Said...

Aspiring Firefighters Have Used Our eBooks, Training Courses, Membership Resources, and Coaching Services on Their Way to Becoming Australian Firefighters.

.

I've been a Bondi Lifeguard for a while and we work in some tricky situations in the community quite often, but I've been wanting to get into the fire services for a while now. Brent has really helped 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

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 to get into the fire service. I definitely recommend Brent’s products for anyone wanting to develop the necessary skills required for the fire service

Thanks again Brent!


Sage Argento

Hey Brent!

Just wanted to say thank you for all your help and guides!!

And I’ve completed all the books and as of today, have started the requirements and physical tasks that was on the books to help progress on becoming a fire fighter.

I’m gonna stick to this 2, 3 months, also with seeing at least 2 fire stations every week and getting all the help I can.

But I just wanted to thank you. Because of you I have a path I can now follow.

And when this is all said and done. I would very much like to meet you!

Thanks again Brent. I won't let you down.

Dream Career


ROB QLD

Hi Brent

Thanks your information in the past, it helped me through my testing and interview stage.

I got confirmation last week on a position in the ADF as a fire fighter, great way to start the new year.

Thank you for taking the time to help out others in trying to get through the selection process of Firefighter.

Your book was the key for me!


Sam

Passed the aptitude mate, your book was the key for me.

Can’t thank you enough for all your help.

Next step is the screening interview.

Very helpful!


Robbie Solah

Just letting you know that my son was accepted into the Fire Brigade thanks to your very helpful book.

He has had his uniform fit, he’s just waiting for his medical next week but hopefully that should be all good. I bought your book for him a while ago because he had always talked about trying for the Fire Brigade but doubted himself a little.

He is only 20 years old and this was the first time he applied. He has finished his apprenticeship as an electrician and now he might be able to do a bit of that on the side.

Thanks again for all your advice in the book. He read all the sections and prepared himself for the tests and the interview which really paid off for him.

He is so excited and keen to learn. Fingers crossed the medical goes well.

Absolutely Wrapped!


Matthew Pendergast

I got into the CFA on my first application, so absolutely wrapped!

Process To Success was the most helpful I reckon, especially for the interview prep.

Good work!


William Kolbrink

First of all I'd like to thank you for your good work .

Your book hit the nail on the head and eliminated a lot of confusion in the process of preparation.

I've read and enjoyed the books!


Oliver

I've read and enjoyed the books I bought from you. A lot of the stuff is common sense or things I have done previously as I did ten years’ whole time service in the London fire brigade, UK.

That said I will take on board all of your help and advice, and have since nipped to my local station twice for a chat, and been swatting up on the NSW web site.

The behavioural type questions section was very helpful in thinking of the types of questions likely to be asked.

Thanks again for the books and if I think of any questions I will be in touch.

So much useful and very insightful information!


Daniel Kiripatea

I received the eBook and immediately dove into it. So much useful and very insightful information.

I’m going to go through it more thoroughly over the next few days, possibly the next couple of weeks as I stumbled across a few common questions that had never come to mind and truth be told, actually had me thinking.

Had I gone into the interview otherwise, things would not have gone in my favour at all. At this point, things are pretty straightforward and I will let you know if I find difficulty with any progress.

Cheers again.

Thank you!


Scott Telha

All is going well, thank you.

Your book is excellent and is full of so many great tips and advice.

I feel I was a little naïve about everything before reading your book. So, thank you.

Really helpful!


Scott Ford

Finding your steps to success really helpful so far.

I am currently going through each topic and obtaining the information I require for each section.

Absolutely brilliant piece of literature!


Jace Kelly

I had my interview yesterday so I only needed your guide for the interview section.

Absolutely brilliant piece of literature that you’ve put together there, it helped immensely!

Have already recommended it to a few friends going through the process already.

Thanks for the line, appreciate it.


Alex Turnbull

Just wanted to share with you:

Your guide is really good mate, well done! You've given me quite a lot to think about that I hadn't done last time. Looking forward to doing the work now and being ready for the SAMFS intake. I'll be in touch in the future to get some further support... Cheers!

Update:
Mate, I start September 14th. Hard work has paid off and I’m stoked!

Thanks so much


Chris

Thanks so much for your amazing resources.

I’m currently in the middle of the recruitment process of the South Australian MFS and have progressed to the aptitude testing stage.

Going over your tips and example questions, has been of great help and I’ve just purchased the Australian Fire Brigade Exams book to help me with my preparation.

Thanks again and all the best.

“Thanks Again”


Dean Wilmot

I most appreciate your help and going the extra mile for me!

I must say another BIG Thanks as in:

The Recruitment info you sent me is the BEST bit of advise I’ve had throughout the various Companies I’ve got aptitude advise from.

Brilliant !!

Thanks again

I recommend your books!


Damien Rankin

I’ve just found out that I was successful in getting past the aptitude testing for
CFA Recruitment.

The books I purchased from you:

  • Australian Fire Brigade Exams,
  • Fire Service Aptitude Guide and
  • The Process To Success

These were a huge benefit to getting me through this exam.

I would recommend them to anyone. So, thank you for them and the support.


Bob Innes

I thought I would let you know:

That after 2 and a half years of hard work and persistence, with help from My Emergency Career.

I just got offered a position in school 76 with DFES Western Australia. I'm bloody wrapped.

Thank you for all your help and information. Really paid off.

Thanks again mate!

I’m very impressed mate!


James

I’m just on my last day off before I start shift again so I’ve had a great opportunity to read through the bundle.

I’m very impressed mate and really happy with the content. I’ve even been revising my aptitude (even though I’m told I don’t need to re-do it because I’ve passed it on my last application) because I found the book useful and rewarding.

Once again, I’m very happy with my purchase and grateful for all your help.

Thank you again for the bonus material.

I am extremely pleased!


Lance Morgan

Thanks Brent!

I just wanted you to know I am extremely pleased with your guide.

It has already helped me in more ways than I can imagine.

Without it, I would be very unprepared going into the recruitment process.

“I wish I had found your book and website earlier”


Mat Brisbane QLD

Hi Brent

Thanks so much for all your continuing positive advice.

It’s so refreshing to have your insight on the process.

I wish I had found your book and website earlier as it has been really helpful, with a smile.


Michael

I couldn't pass up the chance to purchase such and great insight into exactly what I want to do.

I received your email and video this morning and have realised that I have to get my A** into gear if I want to have a crack at it this/next year.

I appreciate your follow-up Brent, it's a great gesture and shows you care a lot about your products and the people who purchase it.

Thanks again Brent.

Offered a position


Steve Eardley

Just a quick e-mail to let you know that I have been offered a position with the NT Fire and Rescue Service.

This was my first time applying and the tips I received from the guidebook were spot on.

Thanks for your help.

Useful information!


Shon Gatti

Firstly, thank you for the emails and all the useful information within your books.

Sorry it’s taken me so long to respond – I’ve been acting platoon sergeant for the vast majority of the year, as you can imagine, managing 30 people doesn’t leave much personal time.

I have been reading over the information on the QFES website and your books and have found it to be very helpful.

I have completed my first aid qualification with the QAS and my next step is to obtain a Medium Ridged license and to continue studying.

Thank you.

I was accepted!


Greg Henderson

I’m happy to say I was accepted into QFES on my first attempt (after being on my to-do list for 8 years).

I start the recruit course in June – very excited!

Thanks for the content in your eBook. I found some parts of it quite helpful in my preparation.

Cheers.

Fantastic information!


Nathan Jones

That is some fantastic information there, I really appreciate it.

I think I could go out on a limb and say on behalf of all aspiring fire and emergency potentials, this package is just what is needed to boost our confidence when applying.

Brent’s products beneficial!


Matt

I found Brent’s products beneficial.

Not being used to being under the pump, doing practice tests, it took me a while on some questions.

At times Ben had to help me along the way, but I think with more sessions it will really help me towards the aptitude testing with DFES, which is in about 3 weeks.

Definitely helping.


Ryan Pym

I’m going well, I have passed the aptitude testing for one application.

Your book is definitely helping me prepare for the interviews which is the only part I am still worried about.

Most helpful!


Meg Krahn

I have been working my way through the documents that you have sent and have found them most helpful.

I cannot wait to finish up my responsibilities at my current job so I can focus more of my attention on obtaining a job in the firefighting industry!

I look forward to conversing with you more in the future and for now I am excited to have the prospect of one day becoming a firefighter.

Thank you for your help.

Your book has been excellent!


Tys Zorzo

I’m just completing and fine-tuning my resume and cover letter for my application.

Your book has been excellent at answering a lot of my questions and has helped me greatly.

Thanks!

Lifelong dream!


Leigh McGrath

I’ve finally passed the ACER aptitude test for the Tasmania Fire Service.

This is my fifth attempt and the first time I have passed the aptitude test. This is a lifelong dream which has taken nearly ten years of study to crack the code.

My father is a firefighter so hopefully I can follow in his footsteps.

The next stage is the physical abilities test and if I pass that then I’m onto the psych test. I feel confident about the physical abilities test, I feel like this is where I can do my best work.

Also, I want to thank you for the material you sent to me, I think this has been a big help and also your emails are really good at keeping my motivation levels up.

Again, thanks heaps and I hope to hear from you soon!


Mark Watson

Hope all is well mate!

Haven’t touched base for a while – I bet you are flat out during this phase of the recruitment process for NSW.

Just want to say thanks for the tips and advice so far. The book and various other positive reinforcements have had a big impact on me so far.

I completed the first online test and I was pretty bloody happy with my results – I am just holding my
breath now for the invitation to the second online test.

First time in three years I feel confident about the recruit campaign!

Rob

Hi Brent, first of all, pleasure to make your acquaintance.

The package has already proved invaluable and I can't thank you enough in helping me in the right direction.

I have passed


Ellie Meuwissen

I have passed my characteristics and aptitude, have my fitness and physical in a month, training hard! I have found the interview possible questions very helpful and I am looking forward to hopefully getting to that stage!

I applied a few years ago and failed mechanical and characteristics, I had no idea what to expect and couldn’t find useful, reliable information. So good to see, I hope you are very successful with this!

Thanks again!

It's a big help!


Joe Harding

It's going well.

I applied last year and made it to the interview stage and found myself unprepared for it and didn't know what to expect so reading through your guide is definitely going to help.

I'll be sure to ask any questions I have and just wanted to say thanks for putting this together.

It's a big help.

Thanks for your help!


Jared Ford

Thanks for your help.

I got into the MFB, waiting on my course!

I made it!


Sherie

Just wanted to advise you that I got a call back regarding my interview with FMSW and I made it!

Very Professional!


Daniel Zecchel

I’d just like to thank you for your help with the resume and cover letter.

I was very impressed with the work and professionalism that was provided to me.

I would definitely recommend this service to other people looking to get into the fire service.

Very satisfied and looking forward to working with Brent and your team over the due course.


Anthony Best

Been meaning to email and let you know:

After 2 years and 7 rejections and just turning 43 I made the recruit course 2/2015 with Northern Territory Fire and Rescue.

With only 6 weeks to go out of 17 of the recruit course I couldn’t be happier, your program was a huge help with me sticking at it and not giving up so thanks again mate.

Appreciate all the advice!


Michael Goodwin

Just wanted to let you know that I finally got into the MFB and I’ve recently started working on shift.

Appreciate all the advice and emails you have sent my way because I found the advice and info really helpful and have told friends about it.

Thank you again.

Thanks Heaps!


Dave Alp

At the moment, I’ve just gone through the physical assessment and passed!

So, now I am just waiting to hear if I get an interview. I’ve been reading the interview section of your book and it all is very helpful information, thanks heaps.

I will be studying up on everything this week to make sure I have a good chance in the interview.

Thanks again!

I am very grateful!


Daniel Mattiazzo

Thank you, Brent!

This is all incredibly helpful and I am very grateful that you've sought fit to supply me with this information.

I've read and enjoyed the books!


Oliver

I've read and enjoyed the books I bought from you. A lot of the stuff is common sense or things I have done previously as I did ten years’ whole time service in the London fire brigade, UK.

Thanks again for the books and if I think of any questions I will be in touch.

Very beneficial!


Kyle Mayes

I'm finding this package very beneficial, the physical training tips, study techniques and insight on creating a more appealing resume have really helped me so far.

I am at the start of what is really a 6 month plan so I am confident in not just meeting the benchmarks required but going past them before I submit an application, hopefully early next year (depending on the CFA/MFB recruitment schedule).

I will definitely have some questions for you over the coming weeks.

Thanks for your help so far!

I Passed it!


Sarah Payne

I PASSED IT! Wow!

Bring on the Aptitude Testing!

Very informative!


Neal Horton

Thanks for checking in, and thanks for putting the package together.

So far, I have found it very informative and full of good ideas. I have read through everything, and I will definitely read through it again.

It's a very useful resource that I can keep referring to.

Thanks again.

Successful!


Garth Bigg

I was successful in getting into the SAMFS starting on the 14th of this month.

Look forward to the journey ahead.

I passed the first cognitive!


Ryan Yanz

I just got the email saying I passed the first cognitive,

I now have the beep test and the supervised cognitive on the 21st.

Really useful!


Olivia Bartlett-Marques

I've been training really hard for this, both physically and mentally - reading up and researching the job, as well as getting my head into the types of aptitude testing that they do.

Your website as well as the book are both really useful! A lot of the advice you give is similar (if not the same) as what I’ve been given from existing ACT F&R fire fighters that I've spoken to along the way.

It's great to have it all on paper as a check list and constant resource.

Thanks for all the support!


Dan Eggleston

Thanks for all the support.

I really think I would have taken a lot longer to get through the selection process without it (and the process has only just started).

Lifelong dream!


Leigh McGrath

I made it to the physical.


Hayley Fraser

Found out Friday afternoon. I made it to the physical. Can’t believe it. So excited

Chris

Thanks so much for your amazing resources.

Jake

Thanks for the follow up email.

I have read through your pack over the weekend and it will really help me.

I decided I wanted to be a firefighter a few years ago and from that point I have joined the volunteer side of the CFA.

Applied for the NT fire service with success but disappointingly declined due to family circumstances at that time which I now regret declining and as I recently applied for the NSW fire and rescue but didn’t get past the application stage.

I am currently in the application process of the CFA and I am set on doing everything possible to get in.

Thanks for your package and the time you have put into it.

“Thanks for a great product”


John NSW

Hi Brent

Thanks for a great product, and thanks for your interest.

I think you’ve pretty much nailed it with the documentation.

I found the interview process particularly helpful.
