Don McNea Fire School is the number one firefighter preparatory school in the country.  Since 1950, Don McNea Fire School has successfully prepared over 60,000 applicants for firefighter examinations across the country. 

The test consultant who will be giving your 2016 Akron Firefighter Written Examination will be The Siena Consulting Team.  We have conducted numerous exam preps for this consultant with extremely successful results.  This is not generic testing – it is custom-designed to this test consultant.

This is our fifth consecutive Akron Firefighter Exam which we have conducted SOLD OUT preparatory classes!  This is not a public relations statement – it's fact! 

This Highly Intensive Testing And Instructional Seminar Includes:

  • Full-length, multiple choice practice examination with over 400 custom-designed questions covering the testing subjects for your 2016 Akron Firefighter Examination:
  • Reading Comprehension Skills
  • Mathematical/Numerical Skills
  • Mechanical Ability
  • Situational Judgment
  • Biodata/Personality Exam
  • Reasoning Exam
  • 99% of all firefighter applicants have never taken an exam with Biodata/Personality questions as part of the examination. Don McNea Fire School has conducted in-depth preparatory seminars across the country covering this type of examination.  We have the key insight to put you in the top percentile to be hired by the Akron Fire Department! 

Please note:  Remember that the higher your score on the written examination, the higher your ranking on the final eligibility list.  This is where the ballgame will be won!

    Past successful Don McNea Fire School class results have shown that 37 of the first 50 were Don McNea Fire School Akron students! 

    The results from our recent Cleveland Fire Department exam prep seminar showed that 176 of the first 200 on the eligibility list were Don McNea Fire School students!

Custom-designed examinations are what make the difference in our students continually scoring in the top percentile and getting that coveted fire department badge!

All seminar attendees will receive ALL of the following materials:

  • Top Scoring Test-taking and Physical AgilityStrategies that have proven successful for thousands of applicants!
  • Ohio Exam Watchlist - A compilation of over 200 fire departments in Ohio that includes department address and phone number to enable you to keep up-to-date on current exam information.
  • All seminar attendees will receive the At-Home Preparation Package when they attend the class.

Your Opportunity!

The cost of this seminar and listed preparatory materials is only $89.00.  Payment plans are available below! 

When considering the cost of the class, view it as an investment in your future or the future of your family!  Your investment in these classes will actually be returned to you in your first 3 hours as an Akron firefighter! 

In the job market today, there are not many employment opportunities that offer the same competitive salary, benefits, chance for advancement and job security as does the career of an Akron firefighter. 

Class Dates/Location

The seminar will be held on Sunday, July 24th, from 1:00-6:30 pm, at the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn Hotel & Suites, 3180 W. Market Street, Akron, Ohio 44333.  If you need directions, please call them at 330.867.5000.  This seminar will give you that needed competitive edge!

Comments from Successful Candidates

  • "I felt extremely prepared having no prior knowledge of what would be on the Akron Fire Exam.  I was impressed with how prepared I was from just taking one practice exam.  The most important skill that was covered was how to identify different questions and how to approach answering each one.  I know personally that six of my friends and I finished in the top 40 and it was because we took your seminar.  Thank you very much!"
  • "The exam prep for the Biodata/Personality questions alone was well worth the price I paid.  I would have paid 5 times as much to have this kind of insight into the exam."
  • "I took your last Cleveland seminar and wanted to send you a quick note to express my thanks.  The practice examinations I took in your seminar without a doubt helped me to score a 99.4 on the exam.  I'm on my way to becoming a Cleveland firefighter thanks to you.  Again, thank you very much!"
  • "Overall, a great seminar.  It helps when the instructor is a chief officer who has the right experience and insight into Akron's fire exam.  The Chief was very credible and will highly recommend this class to my friends in the future." 
  • "The practice examination material was extremely informative and was perfect prep for the test.  The practice exams were helpful to a person like me who has been out of school and testing for six years.  Thank you to all who were involved in Don McNea Fire School."
  • Great preparation!  I would never have become a New York firefighter without your material.  The exam prep was just amazing.  Thank you so much!"
  • "Don McNea Fire School was extremely helpful in allowing me to score high on all levels of the Columbus Civil Service Examination.  I am the second in my family to have successful results by using your preparatory materials."
  • "Amazing similarity between the test materials and the actual Los Angeles County Firefighter Examination!"
  • "Your preparatory materials were worth every penny.  It was my lifetime goal to become an Austin firefighter – your exam prep was just what I needed when test day came around.  Thanks again for all of your help and a great study guide!"

Our Final Thoughts…

You have to ask yourself the following question ~ Will I be adequately prepared for the Biodata/Personality exam to put me in the top percentile to be hired as an Akron firefighter?  Don McNea Fire School will be focusing the seminar on this most important testing subject. 

For those of you who have never attended a Don McNea Fire School seminar before, we don't blame you for being skeptical.  What we can tell you is that by attending our seminar, you will dramatically increase your chances of being one of the firefighters hired by the City of Akron.  Our successful results from past Akron seminars prove that!

We have been conducting preparatory classes since 1950; this is what our business specializes in.  If you feel at this time that you are adequately prepared for this examination, we wish you the best of luckIf you want that extra edge over your competition that our testing materials and seminar will provide, this class is for you!  Remember that luck goes to the prepared!

Now it's up to you - you can fall into two categories.  One is the 90% of fire applicants who never prepare for an examination and are extremely disappointed in their results.  Or, are you going to be in that 10% that starts preparing for the examination early and are confident, relaxed and ready to meet this very important testing challenge?  That 10% represents most fire applicants that get the job - those that really want it!
