Don McNea Fire School is the number one firefighter preparatory school in the country. Since 1950, our seminars and entry-level products have successfully prepared over 40,000 applicants for firefighter examinations across the country.

Over the last 7-10 years while conducting seminars across the country, Don McNea Fire School has noticed a significant landscape change in the examination format. More municipalities are increasingly relying on psychological tests - not only in the hiring phase but also in the entry-level examination format. In recent years, we have had numerous fire candidates with stellar credentials (including degrees in fire science technology, EMT and Paramedic certifications) doing well on all other portions of the exam yet failing the psychological part.

We are again addressing the need that you, the fire applicant, have asked us to address. Don McNea Fire School Psychological Exam Preparation addresses this key component of the testing process that between 40%-60% of applicants are failing.

Did you know that at least 95% of examinations given across the country contain psychological exam testing in the hiring process?  This preparation program gives you the insight into what the psychologists are looking for in successful fire candidates. We identify major personality traits and characteristics of a successful firefighter and we address specific reasons why fire candidates are failing psychological examinations.

In this 40 page workbook, we examine over 80 questions from each of these key personality traits.  With each question, we provide you with suggested answers and explanations to put you in the mindset of what the psychologists are looking for.  Our program also includes a sample nationwide job analysis that identifies key personality traits and behaviors of a successful firefighter.   Candidates who are using our program are going from failure to passing and scoring over 95 percent on the psychological examination and proceeding to the next phase of the hiring process. 

Don't get this far in the hiring process only to fail out by not being adequately prepared! 

Fire Candidates who recently purchased our Psychological Exam Preparation Program had this to say:

"Hello, my name is Steve and I live in Redlands, California. About six months ago I ordered the tapes for the psychological test along with the workbook. I have taken the CWS test before about 5 years ago and got a 73%. After using your preparation program, I was able to score 88.12% on the written exam, which is high enough to put me in the top 60 out of 750 candidates. What I am saying is, thank you for all your help. I would not have had the opportunity to get this far without the insights of your program. I am currently a firefighter/paramedic but I am trying to work for one of my 3 dream departments. Thank you again, Steve."

Thank you for helping me with the psych portion of the written exam. I took a test a year ago without knowing your info and scored in the low 70's. About 3 weeks ago I took that same test and scored a 94% and will be continuing in the process. That following week I took the same exam at my home department and though I do not know my score I have been invited to continue in their process as well. I honestly believe that without knowing the information that I obtained in your Psychological Prep Program that I would not be continuing in the process anywhere. I believe in what you have done for me and therefore I have recommended your material and website to many of the candidates that I have talked to in the past few weeks. I cannot say it enough but THANK YOU! THANK YOU! - Larry From Oregon

It was quite frustrating to continually finish in the top 10% on the written exam but continue to fail the psychological portion of the exam. I didn't know what I was doing wrong, only that I failed it. After purchasing your program, I realized the mistakes that I was making. Just fine-tuning a couple areas of the personality traits that the psychologists are looking for gave me the edge I needed. I have now completed two psychological examinations, have passed both and am a finalist in those departments." Brad from Ohio.

"After hearing all my friends who were taking examinations complain about failing the psychological exam, I decided to go in prepared. Your psychological preparation was the reason I passed my exam. I have no doubt that I might have failed without it. It made me realize the reasons why my friends failed the exam and showed me how not to make the same mistakes. I highly recommend this program for anyone taking a psychological examination." Tom from California.

"When you state in your psychological program that it puts you in the mindset of what the psychologists are looking for - it certainly did! I never realized that different jobs have different psychological characteristics. I now know what the psychologists are expecting from a firefighter applicant. I feel very confident for my future exams."
Mike from Washington.
