CLEVELAND PROMOTIONAL EXAM PREPARATION

At-Home Written Test/Assessment Center Package

Purchase Information available at the end of this webpage!

Important Note. The questions for the Tactics and Company officer book will be given out at the Subordinate counseling sessions on January 14th 15th or 16th.

Captain Exam update January 10th :   Practice exam questions for Norman's Tactics, Company Officer by Smoke and updated questions for SOP, GO, Protocols and Rule Book will be given out at the Subordinate Counseling seminar.

This at-home package eliminates all of the time traveling back and forth to attend classes and will allow you to concentrate more of your time studying when and where it is convenient for you.

We will be scheduling some study dates at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, 1355 West 70th Street, Cleveland OH  44102 (just north of Detroit) for those of you who want to get out of the house and have some quiet study time.  When we send the exam package, we will give you those study dates and times.

The complete updated At-Home 2300-Question Written Exam Preparatory Prep package will be available during the entire study period until the January 11, 2014, exam date.

Puerer and Associates, a local book distributor, 1-800-253-8183, has agreed to give our students an additional discount on your promotional book purchase.  Books are shipped the same day!  When calling, state that you are attending Don McNea Fire School promotional school to receive the discount!

Assessment Center Exam Prep

Don McNea Fire School is more confident in the Assessment Center exam prep for this year's format than for any other entry or promotional school I have done in the past 22 years.  That statement says it all on how well you will be prepared for your Assessment Center examination.

We recently prepared applicants for a major city in which EB Jacobs used an alternative format for their Subordinate Counseling and Tactical Exercises.  In your last exam, 15 minutes was the timeframe to present for Subordinate Counseling and Tactical; the new alternative format allows you just 7 minutes each to present your information.  Don McNea Fire School has key insight and new exam prep and strategies if this alternative format is used for the upcoming Cleveland Fire Department promotional exam. If this format is not used, we have dramatically updated our promotional exam prep for the 15 minute presentation.

The Assessment Center is where the ballgame will be won – it will be worth 60% of your score! 

As in the past, our Assessment Center exam prep and practice sessions will be in a seminar format and held over multiple days and will give you plenty of time for you to begin to practice for this important part of your exam process that is worth 60% of your score!

Important Note:  We will only be conducting our Subordinate Counseling/Tactical Assessment Center exam prep for those individuals who purchase our Written/Assessment Center Exam Prep prior to January 11thAfter January 11th, we will NOT be offering the Assessment Center as a sole class to anyone other than those registered. The actual Assessment Center exam given by the test consultants will be 6-7 weeks after the written examination.

Class Results

The results from the 2011 Cleveland promotional classes include:

    « Lieutenant 64 out of the first 70 on the eligibility list were Don McNea Fire School students, including 28 of the first 30!

    « Captain  36 of the first 40 were Don McNea Fire School students!

For the last 4 promotional exams, we continue to place 80-90% of our students in the top 40 on the Lieutenant and Captain eligibility list!  These results say it all about our promotional preparation!

Additional Exam Prep Information

    « These examinations will give you an indication of which material you must concentrate your studies for your remaining preparation period.

    « These examinations will help build your confidence and help you overcome any test anxiety you may have.

    « Below are some sample grading on the last promotional exam to give an idea of how close the scores were: 

o 99.91465%

o 99.91292%

o 99.89714%

o 99.89454%

o 99.88899%

o 99.87771%

o 99.62905%

o 99.58294% 

    Think about it – look how close those scores areThis is just an example of intense the competition is and how ONE question on the written examination, one key insight into the Subordinate Counseling and Tactical will make the difference between getting promoted and not!

    « Competition will be very intense for this examination and you will need every edge you can get!  

Important Final Thoughts to Consider…

    « How have Don McNea Fire School's promotional students continued to be so successful over the last 20 years?  Because our exam prep is custom-designed specifically to the test consultant EB Jacobs and NOT just generic assessment center exam prep! 

    « As we have previously stated…Some of you were successful on the last promotional examination and some of you were not and some of you decided not to take the last exam.  With the number of job openings available from this examination this is NOT the time to sit on the sidelines

    « This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with 20-30 Captain openings and 65-70 Lieutenant openings.  This exam will lock up many of those positions for at least 10-15 years.

    « Finally, remember that this is not our first time conducting promotional classes for the Cleveland Fire Department! Our results speak for themselves – over the last 20 years, 80-90% of individuals promoted to Lieutenant or Captain were Don McNea Fire School students!  It's your decision who you will place your trust in to adequately prepare you for your upcoming promotional examination.

    « The higher you are on the final eligibility list will affect your chances of being on a 24-hour shift vs. a 40-hour shift, better vacation, barry, and cycle day choices as well as future transfers.

    « Your investment in this course will be recovered in the first six weeks of your promotion and you will reap the benefits for both your retirement and DROP for the rest of your life!  When considering the cost of the class, view it as an investment in your future and the future of your family.

    « We will include an added incentive – anyone finishing in the top 5 after all scores are finalized will receive a 25% tuition refund!   

Listed below is the extra pay raise equivalent for 5, 10, 15 and 20 years and the extra increase to your DROP account…
