    Default Which departments in Colorado use the FIRE TEAM test?

    I took the FIRE TEAM test for the first time for the department that I ultimately want to work for, but only made it into B Band. My math, verbal, and mechanical scores were very good but I only got an 82 on the Human Relations. I want to take this test as much as possible in order to improve my scores when I eventually retest with my desired department.

    Does anyone know which departments in Colorado use the FIRE TEAM test?

    Aurora, Colo Springs, South Metro... There maybe more, but those are the ones that I know for sure.

    I understand your thought process, but keep in mind that each dept can tailor the results to their liking, so where you scored in B band at one dept you might do better with another answering the questions exactly the same way.

    Also banding maybe done differently per dept. I don't know if CSFD still does it this way but they used to band by clusters, not a set percentage. So if they had a cluster of guys that were around 89% they were band A, and the next cluster of scores were at 86% they would be Band B and so on. Whereas another dept might say anyone that scored 100-85% is band A.

    Lots of variables, but I know a guy (I know everyone says that, but it's true) that I've been testing around the state with that got C band with Springs and A band with Aurora and he said he didn't change a thing with his answers.

    I won't offer any advice on the test 1) because we signed that non-disclosure agreement and 2) because I suck at taking the FireTEAM test.

    Best of luck getting on with Springs and keep plugging!
