  • Visualization

  • Verbal Expression
  • Verbal Comprehension
  • Information Ordering
  • Problem Sensitivity

(This testing subject will set you apart from your competition!  We have practice examinations and strategies that will provide you with that ultimate edge over your competition!)


Remember that your ranking on the eligibility list is from the highest written scores to the lowest – this is where the ballgame will be won!   Our seminar will dramatically increase your chances of becoming a San Antonio firefighter!



During our seminar, we will provide you with key insight and our top-scoring suggested answers and strategies for the B-Pad Oral Interview that you will take during the hiring process. 

Additional Bonus!

You will also receive our 25-page top-scoring physical agility strategies that have been developed by our experts to help put you in the best physical condition over your competition.

Final Bonus!

You will receive the Texas Fire Department Watchlist – A compilation of almost 300 fire departments that includes department address and phone number to enable you to keep up-to-date examination information for departments across the state of Texas. 

Student Comments


  • "I took your San Antonio seminar in 2006 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 in the high 90s on the exam.  I'm on my way to becoming a San Antonio firefighter thanks to you.  Again, thank you very much!"


  • "The instructor did a fantastic job of presenting the class.  I felt much more comfortable and confident taking the exam – and it showed!  I finished #5 on the test and am looking forward to continuing on in the hiring process.  Thank you!"  Jim, San Antonio.


  • "I purchased your workbook for the Las Vegas Fire Department.  Although the time left was very short and although I work two jobs, I was able to score 99% on the recent Las Vegas exam!  I have 13 years experience as a firefighter and engineer and in no way does my experience and education give me an advantage in the area of entrance exams because the days of the standard civil service exam seem to be over.  I find that the use of specialized study guides such as those you offer are imperative for one to be a viable candidate in today's highly competitive market.  Once again, thank you very much for a fine product and service." 


  • "The instructor and class material were professional, well-prepared and to the point.  I feel the class was extremely helpful and contributed a great deal to my scoring well on the exam." Julie, Austin, Texas
