Increasingly in recent years Aptitude Tests are being used as part of the selection
process for many careers. One such career is the Fire Service where the test determines
whether or not applicants are cleared to the interview stage of the selection process.
Performance of candidates in aptitude tests can be improved in a number of ways.
These include exposure to tests (i.e. seeing tests in advance), by practice and by being
taught good test techniques. Throughout the course good test techniques will be taught and
Types of Tests Covered
All tests appropriate to this recruitment will be covered.
Emphasis will be placed on tests similar to those used in previous competitions for the
selection of Fire Fighter Trainees and on tests, which assess skills relevant to the
position of Trainee Fire Fighter along with tests used by Fire Brigades abroad.
If for any reason the Dublin Fire Brigade Aptitude Test changes Test Preparations
will make such amendments as are necessary to our preparation courses to
ensure that we continue to deliver the highest quality programme possible.
