Since 1992, 512 out of the 598 firefighters hired by the Cleveland Fire Department were Don McNea Fire School students!

Over 375-Question At-Home Preparatory Package
Immediate Digital Download Available!

This highly intensive preparatory package includes over 375 in-depth practice examination questions specifically developed for the following testing subjects for your Cleveland National Testing Network/FireTeam/Ergometrics Firefighter Exam – this is not generic testing!

  • Mathematics
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Human Relations - Able to Deal with Diverse Situations and to Follow Orders and Reason Through Situations – 99% of applicants have never taken this type of examination. This testing subject is the key to your examination – you will practice with over 120 questions specifically designed for this most important portion of your examination.  This is where the ballgame will be won! 

You will also receive all of the following bonus material :

  • Don McNea Fire School's Psychological Written and Capt Bob's Psychological Oral Interview Exam Prep.  (Valued at $60.00!)  Part of your hiring process will include a psychological written exam and psychological oral interview.  The failure rate of this type of exam is over 30%.  Don't let this portion of the exam stop you from being a Cleveland Firefighter!
  • Top Scoring Test-taking, Mechanical and Physical Agility Strategies that have proven successful for thousands of applicants!
  • Watchlist of Ohio Fire Departments – includes department addresses and phone numbers to keep you current on examination information!

IMPORTANT EXAM NOTE:  Although the City of Cleveland still has a 10 point residency credit, because of the new test format, 32% of the individuals finishing in the top 100 on the 2017 exam did not have residency points, including many individuals who were candidates from out of state!

With Cleveland's new testing format, it gives an individual a good chance of being hired without having Cleveland residency points.

We have prepared thousands of applicants in over 100 cities to take the National Testing Network examination (same examiner as the Cleveland exam) with extremely successful results.  We anticipate those same results for the 2018 Cleveland Firefighter Exam. 

We have dramatically updated our exam prep for this test consultant since the last Cleveland Firefighter Examination in 2017. 

PREPARING FOR THE EXAM… If you want that true competitive edge over your competition, we highly recommend that you schedule an exam date AFTER you prepare with our materials so that you will be fully prepared for this new testing format. 

Testimonials from Past Don McNea Fire School Students…

  • "Don McNea Fire School was extremely helpful in allowing me to score high on all levels of the Cleveland Firefighter Examination.  I am the third in my family to have successful results by using your preparatory materials."
  • "The NTN/FireTeam exam prep for the Human Relations portion alone was well worth the price I paid!  I would have paid 10 times this amount to have this kind of insight into the exam."
  • "I took the National Testing Network fire exam twice and failed miserably.  My dream department was testing and there was no way I was going to score that low again.  I did an internet search and found your exam prep.  My exam score increased dramatically and put me in the top 5 on the eligibility list.  I really can't say thank you enough!"
  • "The exam prep for the Human Relations helped give me that edge that I never would have had without taking the class.  Your class put me in the top percentile and in a position to be hired by the Cleveland Fire Department."

Our best testimonials come from current Cleveland Firefighters who have been successful by preparing with our materials over the last 65 years.  If you are not sure whether or not to purchase our materials, we ask that you talk to a Cleveland firefighter who has prepared with our products in the past.
