The Career Firefighting Recruitment Application system was re-opened at 12 noon today to take on additional candidates for courses in the second half of 2017.

Prior to applications opening, CFA advised that the system would close after the first 250 applications were received.

Due to an unprecedented number of applications received, the quota was reached within an hour, which greatly exceeds previous campaigns.

Some people may have also experienced difficulties on getting through and this was due to the large quantity of people being on line at the same time.

CFA apologises for this inconvenience and candidates will have another opportunity to apply late March 2017, when we once again commence our main recruitment campaign.
