The Firefighter Multimedia Assessment involves candidates reviewing a video-based training lesson that simulates initial learning and training assignments for entry-level firefighters (e.g., during academy training). The videos are about a piece of equipment that is not real, but was created specifically for this assessment. Total testing time for the FMA is estimated to be approximately 120 – 160 minutes.
