Exam Highlights:

Situational-Based Styles Assessment for Firefighters – SBSA-FF
The SBSA-FF was developed to measure aspects of the job performance that are not usually assessed in other exams. The focus of the SBSA-FF is to measure those skills typically evaluated later in the selection processes (by structured oral interviews and assessment centers). This easy-to-administer paper-and-pencil test utilizes a situational judgment test (SJT) format. The SBSA would be a good complement to the NFSI or FST, or could be used in place of an oral interview if the traditional oral interview was not a viable solution for an agency.
