    Default orange county FL written test

    Has anybody taken it? Is it a fire/ems test or a civil service exam? Thanks in advance.

    Default Orange County Test

    Are you talking about California or Florida? If it is CA, it is a civil service test. Orange County Fire website has some practice ?'s to help you prepare. I believe last test took 94% or better to the next phase.

    Hope this helps,

    Are you taking it for the certified program they have or their non certified program? I dont know about the certified program but the non certified program test I took years ago was a civil service test. The certified test I took for Orlando was a fire/ems test..good luck!!

    It was a civil service exam a few years ago. I think it's the same test now as it was then. You could probably find out more through the orange county human resources departmant. Good luck!

    I don't know if this tread was started because OCFRD recently posted FF job vacancy. I submitted my job appl immediately. The deadline to submit was 04/14.

    My question is to anyone, how long will I know when I am supposed to test?


    Assuming I wasn't D'Qd for anything else in the screening process.
    I am new at this. I was FF certified for last February.
    I don't know if they will notified by mail if I didn't make the cut.

    Did anybody get notifed to take the written test yet?

    Thanks.

    When I applied for Orlando it took a few months before I was scheduled for a written exam. I learned very fast that this process takes alot of time but it works out in the end. Good luck with Orange County!
