QFES OFAT 2021 – Fire Recruitment Australia
I thought I would give you guys a summary of the OFAT (One factor at a time) that a lot of you can easily refer to while preparing or waiting for your turn during the actual physical exam.
It has been a busy scene in the fire service industry as of late with almost simultaneous recruitments happening from different states. One of the most anticipated intakes perhaps is the one with Queensland Fire and Emergency Services or QFES especially with their revamped Aptitude and Physical exams!
QFES has done a great job of updating their website and providing all the information there is on the 2-fold Aptitude Exam and the OFAT.
A lot of aspiring applicants ask what the best preparation is for OFAT. The answer is simple – an early start. Fitness is not something you achieve overnight. If you plan to apply with any fire service, you should be at least physically fit already so you’ll have less to worry about when the time for the physical exam comes.
The next big secret to success for the physical exam is to PAY ATTENTION. Being physically fit means nothing if you don’t know how to follow instructions.
Good luck to all QFES aspirants who are scheduled to take their OFAT soon. For more information on the lineup of activities, QFES has this intake, be sure to visit their website or click here.
