    Firemedic515,
    The study session that takes place the morning of the test is for EVERYBODY. This is MANDATORY to be able to take the written test that afternoon. You study a booklet that has information pertaining to the written test. (Memory Retention)
    The study sessions being given prior to test day are voluntary and go over general test material. It just gives people an idea of what to expect on test day and the material involved. Arrive early on test day because once the doors are closed, no one will be allowed in for any reason.

    The oral(s) are questions that have "anchors" for answers. I will get into that more when the time comes. You do not have to pay to take the CPAT, but I would start preparing now. I don't care how good of shape you are in, or how many times you have done it, people will fail due to lack of preparation. Work your legs like crazy, and shoulders and arms too. If you have a step mill or a weighted vest, use them while training. More to come as the process progresses.

    Default How does IFD feel about LE officers applying?

    I'm going through the process and was curious on how other FF's feel about police officers? I'm currently a deputy sheriff and was wondering how that will go over.

    You are not the only Police Officer to apply or to be hired. We have some who are reserve police officers around the county. We realize you just got in the wrong line the last time you applied for a Public Safety position. Good luck.

    Default IUPUI Test Location

    Does anyone else on here know exactly where the test is at IUPUI? My little 1/4 sheet has part of the wording cut off, so all it gives is the site IUPUI. I know that the 13th is also graduation, so anything information would help. Thanks.

    Call HQ for exam location. Previously it has been held at one of the large lecture halls near University Blvd. and Michigan St. Good Luck.

    Default HQ call ...

    I called HQ the other day and the response I received was 'just show up and look for signs'. I mentioned the fact that I wanted to be there early and that it might be graduation weekend so parking and other factors would affect things. Same response, 'look for signs'. Frustrating ...
    I called IUPUI and someone from their scheduling department is supposed to get back to me about the location.

    Default oral interview

    Do you recommend preparing for the oral interview w/ stuff like Lepores smoke your firefighter interview, or is this kind of stuff only for someone who has never been in the fire service? what can one expect from IFD's oral interview? thanks.

    I am not sure about those programs out there, but in the past, our interviews were 10 questions and 20 minutes to answer them. Most questions are not geared toward fire related stuff, but are meant to allow you to use life experiences in general to apply to each question. Problem solving, community service, independent action/self starter, decision making process, dependability, working with others/diversity. Remember for the orals, if you don't say it, you haven't done it. In other words, don't be afraid to repeat yourself if necessary. And just because you may be a firefighter now, don't assume they know you are an emt, paramedic, rescue tech., etc.

    2500 filled out pre-applications, but of those, only about 1500 actually signed up to take the written test. About 1250 will drag themselves out of bed to make it to the written on Saturday. As far as male/female/black/white etc., I do not know the numbers.

    How did everybody do on the written this morning? Was there more than one test date? It didn't seem like there were nearly 1200 testers. I think I scored pretty well. I guess we'll have to wait and see. Do they rank candidates after the written, or will they wait for the entire process to be completed?

    FM515, There were 3 test sites to accomodate everyone that signed up. I will work on getting a final number of testers and post it here.

    SGTOchoa, You can fill out a pre application which is used to keep your name on file until the next testing process is started. You have to keep your information on file with the department in order to be notified of the next process. I would not anticipate IFD begining another process for about 1.5-2 years since the written test just took place last Saturday. They want one class by the end of this year and another midway through next.

    Pre app. here

    Interviews are coming up in early June. Expect something soon regarding results from the written test. Chief wants 2 classes of 40-50 each by mid 2007. Word is just over 1,000 took the written test. More to come later.
