To succeed in the demanding fire-rescue environment, firefighters must have specific skills. The aptitude test assesses these skills, which include:
- Understanding oral information
- Reading and understanding written information
- Numerical skills
- Maps, diagrams and mechanical reasoning
- Teamwork and public speaking
Applicants, by invitation only, will be advised of the day and time of the virtual aptitude test. The test is typically scheduled in March or April. There will be no rewrites.
A non-refundable $50 payment to the City of Edmonton will be required prior to writing the aptitude test.
