OFAI Candidate Mentoring Day

Ontario Fire Administration Inc. (OFAI) is hosting our third annual Candidate Mentoring Day on Saturday, October 13, 2018

The Candidate Mentoring Day provides opportunities for candidates to interact with fire service professionals, who are directly responsible for hiring firefighters in their respective municipalities. Hosted at Fire and Emergency Services Training Institute (FESTI), the Candidate Mentoring Day offers you the chance to participate in four interactive, 60-minute sessions, to assist you as you work towards a career in the fire service. Members of OFAI’s partner municipalities will share insight on how to achieve success when pursuing a career in the fire service.

Last year’s event was an exceptionally beneficial day to both candidates and our municipal fire service partners. This year’s event promises to be the same!  Fire service and human resources professionals from Markham, Toronto, Brampton, Oshawa, Chatham-Kent, Central York, Barrie, East Gwillimbury, Mississauga and GTAA will be in attendance, ready to provide valuable advice and tips to candidates in all areas of municipal fire service recruitment.

Topics for our 2018 event include:

  • Resume and cover letter writing
  • Application process
  • Interviewing skills
  • *New*-- Municipal Roundtables

The mentoring day is offered FREE of charge to candidates who hold valid OFAI Candidate Testing certificates.  Preference will be given to those who have all three stages completed.  Candidates are required to register to attend.
