Fire Engineer Test Project

IPMA-HR is developing a test for Fire Engineer (Driver/Operator). This includes personnel whose primary duties may involve driving and positioning emergency vehicles, maintaining emergency vehicles and related equipment, performing aerial ladder platform operations, and performing pumping operations.

The remaining phase of development is outlined below.

Subject Matter Expert (SME) Question Review

SMEs who agree to participate in the question review will be asked to read the questions and rate their appropriateness for the test  They will also be asked if the wording of the question is clear and whether or not they think the answer given is correct.  For this study, SMEs should be first- and second-line supervisors who have direct responsibility for the supervision of fire engineers within their Department. When choosing the staff whom you will ask to participate, please keep in mind the complexity of the task and the confidential nature of the questions to be reviewed.
