2020 Montana Firefighter Testing

MRFD is a member of the Montana Firefighter Testing Consortium. Career Firefighter/Paramedic and Firefighter/EMT candidates are drawn from the annual Montana Firefighter Testing Consortium pool.

The testing normally held in May has been delayed until October 12-15, 2020 due to COVID-19.  In light of this, the consortium has elected to re-open the registration for anyone who did not register previously and would like to test in October. Registration is $100 and will be open until 5 pm, July 31, 2020.   Click here to register.

The testing will be on October 12-15th in Great Falls, MT. Each day, the written test will be administered in the morning and afterward, the CPAT will start. The course viewing will take place on Monday between the written and physical tests and at 7:00 pm for the following days.
