Greetings Captain Bob!
It was my second crack at the Captains promotional and I didn't want to leave any rocks unturned. I called Captain Bob and got started by getting his "Promotional Program".
Almost immediately I felt his enthusiasm and support, I felt my motivation increasing as we spoke on the phone. We got started by cleaning up my resume and making it more readable, what a difference when we were done! The oral board complimented me on submitting just a one page resume.
After receiving my package in the mail I got to work with my recorder. I especially liked the CD and would listen to it every time I drove in the car. I found that the CD information would put me in a frame of mind that would have "my nuggets" popping in to my head.
I couldn't believe how well my interview went, I was answering the questions and adding my own signature stories when appropriate. The interview panel was looking at me like I had invented electricity, I could tell that no one else had answered this way. I had the number one score in that portion of the exam.
After the final Chiefs interview was given the Chief called me and informed me that I had finished #1 and that he wanted me to be one of his new Captains, I couldn't believe my ears, I was going to be a Captain. What was most interesting was the number #2 candidate was the "Oral Board Guru" who teaches interview skills at the community college.
I love my new job. I have been placed in the training division and am planning an in-house academy in April. I am also on several committee's and task forces that meet on a regular basis. The thing I like the most is that now I am in a position to get things accomplished, no more complaining about the bosses now I am one.
Captain Bob was there for me from the beginning. I did the work and he gave me the support I needed. Thanks Captain Bob!!!!! Your friend, Chris

The Promotional Assessment Center Interview
You have fallen off the end of the earth for up to a year or more. Youve been immersed in preparing for the written portion of a promotional test. You have gone through all the policy and procedure manuals in the job announcement, purchased books, IFSTA manuals, and anything remotely related to the test. Your family cant remember who you are.
While taking the written test, you cant believe your agency, or the testing firm they hired for big bucks, could know so little about the fire service and put together such an irrelevant test. The major areas that were listed as material to study on the announcement didnt have one question on the test. Talk about a dog and pony show.
Several candidates, including you, protest test questions. One you protest, you already had right. Weeks pass. Even though the personnel department knows the test scores within days of test they finally release the results three weeks later. Youre not number one. But, youre not at the bottom either. Youre in the upper end of the pack in the middle. Youre in the Olympic camp. All you have to do is make the cut.
After investing all this time and money for the written test that can be weighted as only forty percent of the total score, most candidates do little or nothing preparing for the remaining sixty percent in the interview process.
Many candidates think they have it figured out in their head and write it down that its going to come out of their mouth the same way. It doesnt! They do mock orals with their buddies who either have never been on an oral board (everyone is an expert) or it has been so long, they are out of touch with the process. These buddies cant bring themselves to tell you how bad you really are.
From Matt: On my first promotional test I was at the bottom after the written. After going through your program and coaching I ended up number #2. I was number #1 in the assessment center. The number one position only beat me out with seniority points.
Captain Bob was right when he told me they wouldnít see me coming. They didnít. This sure snapped a lot of heads around and there are a lot of angry folks. Matt
Over the last 39 years I have been helping promotional candidates most of which had great credentials. They had degrees, certificates, training, and experience. Yet, they couldnt present the package. And, if you can present the package . . . you dont get the badge. Period! These people are shocked that candidates with less credentials, seniority, the village idiot, or guys they refer to as the "Car Salesman" type get the badge that had their name on it.
Most Don't have the Necessary Presentation Interview Skills:
The Problem is Poor Oral Board Presentation Skills! Most candidates dont do enough testing to get good at it. The problem is most of them don't know how poorly they are doing. I've seen it too often after being on over 175 oral boards. It's the most misunderstood and least prepared for portion of the testing. Have you been beat up enough in the past, are you tired of being the brides maid when lists expire, and identify with what you have read so far? If you dont think so, you might be in denial. Denial is a river in Egypt. Let your wife or friends read this far let you know if you qualify.
If so, I want to share some of the "Nuggets" Ive acquired from 39 years of fire service test experience that have helped shortened the learning curve to enhance and strengthen your position to get promoted. Are you ready to take the plunge? If so, here we go. Keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times.
This is a great time for promotional opportunities. Up to forty percent of the positions in the fire service are promotable. It is the quickest way for you to improve the economic situation for you and your family for the rest of your career and far into the retirement years. We are at the natural 20 year cycle, positions are being filled, and administrations are changing. And, you can never know what will take place in a promotional examination.
Candidates who dont prepare, wont show up at the written test to fail and be embarrassed. I know a test where 25 people signed up for a captains test. Only 9 showed up for the written. The 6 who made the list were promoted within a year. You never know.
The interview portion of the promotional is the most important. It can be as simple as an oral interview including a fire problem or a full-blown assessment center. The assessment center can be made up, but not limited to a combination of an in-and-out basket, fire problem, oral board, a presentation to a panel or group, peer counseling, conflict resolution, leaderless group discussion, or writing an essay.
The following are Tools and Resources to help you gain your next promotional badge!
The oral interview is like fantasy land. It is not like the real world. Your answers in
the oral board might not be what you would do in real life. Dont fall into the trap.
The board understands the rules, you cant fool them. If you try, the board will
crank up the music and let you dance your fool head off. Dont try to intellectualize
and bring heavy logic to this process. If you do, someone, who understands the rules in
fantasyland better will get the badge. So, please follow the yellow brick road rules in
fantasyland and dont look behind the curtain.

You may already be doing OK on your oral boards. Do you know the advanced strategies to make it over the top to gain that badge? How much time and great opportunities have you wasted so far?
Many believe it takes quite a while to get firmly entrenched in the promotional testing process and get a solid presentation going. Thatís only if you donít have the skills to know what youíre doing. The longer you wait, the further behind youíll be and you may never catch your competition. The time to start learning is now. Each day you delay is costing you valuable time and money. Pretty soon you could lose interest, be considered a part time hobbyist and NOT a serious candidate.
Do you realize that it would take you at least two years of full time work to figure out what is in our Promotional Program? Do you realize that you would have to buy all the Internet junk out there to figure out what is real and what is garbage? I doubt if you want to invest the time and money to make the mistakes of others.
Thatís the reason for this program and thatís the reason people who have used it to convince those making the decisions they are the candidates they have been looking for their promotions . . . while too many others continue to make the mistakes that will keep them badge less. Can you afford to make major blunders in your efforts to gain a badge when they could be avoided with a low $75.00 investment in this one-of-a-kind time tested reference tool? Especially when it comes with a no questions asked full refund it your not satisfied?
Ask yourself this question: If you could gain just one "Nugget" idea that can make a difference between where you're at now and a real shot at a badge, would you get it?
The candidates who do get our program could end up with your badge.
