Application packages are reviewed for completeness and to ensure candidates meet the minimum qualifications.
Candidates who meet the minimum qualifications are invited to Prince George to participate in written aptitude testing.
Candidates will be required to travel to the Lower Mainland to complete the Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT).
Candidate qualifications and test scores will be used to establish a shortlist. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to Prince George for an interview.
Candidates must provide three references.
Candidates will be required to visit an approved physician to complete a Firefighter Medical Examination.
An Eligibility List will be created to fill anticipated vacancies. The number of candidates placed on the list and the retention period of the list are at the City's discretion. Start dates will vary depending on staffing needs.
If placed on the eligibility list, candidates will be required to ensure all certificates and licenses are kept current. If more than twelve (12) months have elapsed since passing the CPAT or Firefighter Medical Examination, candidates will be required to complete another examination - at their own expense - before being hired.
