DON McNEA FIRE SCHOOL COLUMBUS FIREFIGHTER AT-HOME WRITTEN/FOAM EXAM PREPARATION

PLEASE NOTE:  FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO COULD NOT ATTEND OUR THREE RECENT SOLD OUT COLUMBUS WRITTEN/FOAM SEMINARS THAT OVER 600 OF YOUR COMPETITORS ATTENDED, WE ARE OFFERING THE WRITTEN EXAM PREP BOOK AS WELL AS THE FOAM EXAM PREP BOOK USED IN THE SEMINAR FOR IMMEDIATE DIGITAL DOWNLOAD OR SENT BY PRIORITY MAIL

We can make the difference between appointment and disappointment!

Since 1950, Don McNea Fire School has successfully prepared over 60,000 applicants for firefighter examinations across the country.  This will be our ninth consecutive Columbus Firefighter Examination for which we have conducted SOLD OUT preparatory classes. This is not a public relations statement – it's a fact!   

    • Past successful Don McNea Fire School class results have shown that 86% of the Columbus firefighters hired were Don McNea Fire School Columbus Seminar Students!
       
    • Hundreds of current Columbus Firefighters have been hired since 1991 by attending our classes!
       
    • The City of Columbus anticipates hiring over 100 firefighters from this exam!

NEW FOR THE 2017 EXAM:  Only those who pass Phase I (Written Exam) and Phase II (FOAM) will be invited to the Phase III, Firefighter Mile Exam. 

It's more important than ever that you excel in Phases I and II to be sure you put yourself in a position to move on to Phase III!

Written Exam Preparation Includes:

Full-length, in-depth, custom-designed multiple choice practice examinations of over 350 questions covering the following testing subjects for your Written Exam from the City of Columbus Study Guide:

  • Situational Judgment
  • Mathematics, Logic & Reasoning
  • Mechanical Aptitude
  • Map Reading & Following Directions
  • Reading Comprehension
  • THE FAILURE RATE FOR THIS TYPE OF WRITTEN EXAM ACROSS THE COUNTRY IS OVER 60%!  OUR 2014 COLUMBUS CLASS HAD A PASSING RATE OF 98.8!

    Think about it – As with most pass/fail portions of written exams given across the country, your final score will be seen by the firefighter selection committee at some time during the hiring process.  It will be much more impressive to have a written exam score of 98% than a barely passing score of 75%! 

    Almost 4000 applicants registered for the Columbus Firefighter Examination.  Our Written Exam and FOAM Exam Prep will put you in the top percentile to be hired by the Columbus Fire Department!

Firefighter Oral Assessment Mechanism (FOAM) Preparation Includes:

    Remember, as it states in your study guide, the FOAM exam will be weighted as 100% of your  final score! 

    Your ranking on the eligibility list will be determined by how well you do on the FOAM (Firefighter Oral Assessment Mechanism) portion of the testing process. 

    The study guide also states "scores differing by one or two points on the FOAM exam may mean the difference between becoming a firefighter, and not becoming a firefighter.Our material will get you those extra points! 

  • This type of oral interview structure is very unique to the Columbus Firefighter Examination.  99% of applicants have never been through this type of oral interview process.  
     
  • This book will teach you the top scoring strategies and answers to over 40 different scenarios and situations that you may be presented with during the FOAM examination.  
  • IMPORTANT NOTE:  From our last Columbus prep, we have dramatically updated our FOAM exam prep that includes over 40 situational scenarios and strategies to increase your final exam score.  We have included updated suggested responses covering both the problem sensing/resolution and interpersonal components of the exam to put you in the top percentile.

  • Learn critical, positive behaviors and traits that the oral interviewer assessors are looking for in a high-scoring candidate!
     
  • Key insight into the problem sensing and resolution and interpersonal relationships that will be the two dimensions you will be graded on for the oral interview process.
     
  • We will guide you through the oral rater's dimension guidelines and evaluation scales that will be used in the FOAM examination.

Don't go into the FOAM oral interview process unprepared – this is where the ballgame is going to be won! 

Applicants will also receive the following AT NO CHARGE: 

  • Top Scoring Test-taking & Physical Agility Strategies that have proven successful for thousands of applicants!
     
  • Ohio Examination WatchlistA compilation of over 125 fire departments in Ohio, including address, phone number and other pertinent information pertaining to entry-level examinations across the State of Ohio.

We are offering 2 or 4-month no-interest payment plans below. 

When considering the cost of this material, view it as an investment in your future or the future of your family! 

Your investment in this material will actually be returned to you in your first five hours as a Columbus firefighter!  In the job market today, there are not many employment opportunities that offer the same competitive salary, benefits, chance for advancement and job security as the career of a firefighter does. 

Student Comments

  •  Just wanted to send you a quick note regarding your Columbus, OH FOAM test seminar. I attended your seminar on FOAM, and today I took the actual test for it. Your class and study guide book helped me more than I could have ever imagined. I took the time to practice and go over every scenario you have in your packet, like you told us to. And it helped tremendously. If I would have chosen not to take your class, I would have been at a loss. Your seminar and the information you gave us was amazing, so I would like to thank you for all the preparation.
     
  • "I am a firefighter/paramedic in Johnstown, OH.  I just wanted to tell you how great your Columbus seminar was this past weekend.  I found a lot of the information very informative.  I used to think I knew how to pass the FOAM since I had taken it in the past.  It turns out, I scored 3s and 3-1/2s, well below what is needed to be hired.  I wanted to extend my gratitude and let you know that it's because of your FOAM prep seminar that I finished in the top 50 on the final eligibility ranking.  Thank you sincerely!"
     
  • "Don McNea Fire School was extremely helpful in allowing me to score high on all levels of the Columbus Civil Service Examination.  I am the second in my family to have successful results by using your preparatory materials."
     
  • "The class was very informative ~ it was the perfect prep for both the Written and FOAM exams.  The practice examinations were extremely helpful to a person like myself who has been out of school.  I am currently a Columbus Firefighter and I owe it all to Don McNea Fire School."
     
  • "While preparing for the Columbus firefighter exam, I read the study guide 4 times and felt confident that I would do well.  I took your practice examinations just to fine tune what I didn't know.  After taking your tests, I realized that I didn't know the study guide as well as I should.  Your practice exam questions pinpointed areas in the study guide that I thought I knew but didn't.  It really helped with my final preparation before the examination."
     
  • "This class put me in the best position to be successful on the Columbus Firefighter Exam.  Without it, I wouldn't have stood a chance.  I believe it helped me get to the point where I had a chance to compete for a position.  I would do it all over again ~ thank you!"
     
  • "The instructor was very prepared and very professional.  He told his honest opinion about exactly what had to be done and, more importantly, how to do it."

Our best testimonials come from current Columbus Firefighters who have been successful by preparing with our material over the last 25 years.  If you are not sure whether or not to purchase our exam prep, we ask that you talk to a Columbus firefighter who has prepared with our material in the past.
