To succeed in the demanding fire-rescue environment, firefighters must have specific skills. The aptitude test content areas are:
- Understanding oral information
- Reading and understanding written information
- Numerical skills
- Maps, diagrams and mechanical reasoning
- Teamwork and public relations
Applicants (by invitation only) will be advised of the location and time of the aptitude test. This test must be written on location in Edmonton, and is typically scheduled in April or May. No out-of-town or supervised exams will be allowed, and there will be no rewrites.
A non-refundable $50 payment to the City of Edmonton will be required prior to writing the exam.
