About career firefighters

Every work day has meaning. Every work day makes a difference.

Career progression

To become a FRV firefighter, successful candidates must complete 20 weeks of intensive training as part of the FRV Recruit Course, at the Victorian Emergency Management Training Centre in Craigieburn.

Upon completion of this course firefighters will continue training on station for three years to become a qualified firefighter.

Once qualified, there are a range of opportunities for career progression, including taking on more responsibilities while responding to incidents, leadership opportunities and specialisation.
