Study Guide for Firefighter (.PDF Format)

The pre-examination materials have been developed by the Office of State Examiner as a helpful guide to individuals who wish to prepare for the entrance competitive Firefighter and Police Officer examinations for the Louisiana Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service. These booklets contain sample questions and other reference materials that are similar to those which you may encounter on the actual tests. We have provided links to the pre-exam booklets below. If you are unable to print from these links, you may request a copy of the pre-examination booklet from the civil service board in the jurisdiction where you wish to take the examination. A listing of jurisdictions under the Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service with contact information may be found at Local Jurisdiction Information.



The Office of State Examiner can neither accept nor process applications. You must submit your application to the civil service board where you wish to take an examination.

Please do not send your completed application to the Office of State Examiner.

The examinations for Firefighter, Police Officer, and Fire and Police Communications Officer (Legislative Session 2006) are the only examinations which can be taken in one jurisdiction for the purpose of having a score reported to another jurisdiction.  The qualification requirements may differ among some jurisdictions, so you may wish to contact the jurisdiction where you want to have your score reported in addition to the jurisdiction where you plan to take the test, in order to make sure you can meet the requirements for the application process in both jurisdictions.

Examination dates will be added to this site as jurisdictions request them.  The contact person for a jurisdiction will have information concerning the application process.

Remember, whenever you're away from your computer, you may obtain entrance Firefighter and Police Officer exam scheduling information anytime by dialing the State Examiner's 24-hour information line at (225) 925-4567 from any touch-tone phone.
