What apprentice training is required of a firefighter?
All firefighters must successfully complete a State of Minnesota approved three-year apprenticeship program, including classroom and practical training examinations. Employees must satisfactorily complete all apprenticeship training, pass an annual physical fitness examination, and satisfactorily perform required duties during the entire three-year apprenticeship period for a journey-level status. The physical fitness and medical screening program is designed to meet the Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations pertaining to firefighters. This includes various screenings for health and physical problems that potentially place firefighters at risk. All standards of the apprenticeship program must be met to retain employment with the City of Saint Paul.
