At FCTC, we're not just about running you through your test. We are interested in ensuring you have the best opportunity to get hired and succeed while on the job.

Through our connection with the California Firefighter Joint Apprenticeship Committee, FCTC provides candidates with opportunities to receive personal mentoring and outreach services before, during and after the testing process.
