Employment With PFA


Recorded Video - PFA Hiring Information Session

Poudre Fire Authority is preparing to start our next hiring process. The written test will open September 16, 2013, and will close December 31, 2013. Applicants will be notified mid-January if they are being invited to continue on through the process.

We will be using the National Testing Network. If you have tested with NTN within the last 6 months you will be able to submit your test results to Poudre Fire Authority after our test opens.

Please allow 3 hours to complete the Personal History Questionnaire as it is very detailed. The PHQ does not need to be completed at the time of registration but will need to be completed before Dec 31st.

The National Testing Network communicates through email so please be sure to add them to your contacts list and/or check your spam folder if you have signed up for your test and not received any emails from them.

Aims Community College and other colleges that are NTN testing locations will not be holding testing times during their winter break. Please plan accordingly.

AIMS Community College will be closed for Christmas break Dec. 23-27. Tests will not be available during this time so please plan accordingly.

Poudre Fire Authority will be hiring a number of people from this testing process sometime in 2014.
