I am so glad I undertook the Career Services Dublin Firefighter Preparation Course. It was a great investment in myself, and my future. I don’t feel I would have been as prepared if I didn’t have this preparation course to guide me through the stages of the Firefighter competition. Career Services offer a wide and varied course of materials and thorough tuition throughout. I found the instructors incredibly helpful- answering any questions I had throughout the stages and also the personalised videos of explanation. They went above and beyond. I am delighted I made the panel, and feel Career Services prepared me in the best way possible. I would highly recommend anyone going through the next competition to also invest in themselves, and do this course.
