I thought this question may be relevant to other members on here seeing as it seems a career as a Fire Fighter, be it CFA or MFB is such a sort after career and so many people go for either or both successfully and unsuccessfully all year round... I have tried my luck with MFB and twice over failed the opening exam each by such a small margin, and each time a different section has screwed me over by a question or 2 so I am now trying my luck with the CFA! My initial application has been accepted and I've been invited to do a beep test in 2 weeks time. Being a triathlete, sprint distance through to half ironman and have practiced the beep test I can comfortably and very easily reach the required level 9.6. Have any other members on here applied for the CFA and gone through any process? Successful / Unsuccessful? What processes generally do CFA go through as so far the whole thing has been completely different and in my opinion alot better than the MFB process.
