I’m Going to
CAN YOU HELP ME!!!!!
I have been testing for 10 years and have taken approximately 73 tests.
I want to figure out what the heck I'm doing wrong, so I can get the
badge! Firefighting is my passion and my dream career. I've come to far
to let this go. I've read your web sight and I believe this system can
work for me.
I have exactly two weeks till my next oral board....
Reply: This was certainly a challenge. Eric had credentials and was not
a dummy. Like many candidates, he was just stuck in the process. Since
money was tight for Eric, Rob and I discussed this situation and felt if
we offered our Gold Package Program and a private coaching session at no
cost to Eric it would put our program to the full test. We had two
weeks until his next oral.
The Gold Package was sent next day FEDEX. Rob did the coaching session
the following week. Eric had his oral board the following week. After
several weeks this department hired 8 candidates. Eric was one of the
8! After taking 73 tests for ten years, he was able to turn it around
in two weeks to gain a badge.
This from Eric:
Captain Bob and Captain Rob,
First off I would like to say THANK YOU!!!!!!
The two of you have really helped me find the tools that I needed to ACE
the Oral board and get the best career in the world and TO GET THAT
I have been testing sense 1993 and in that time I took a total of 73
tests. While I was testing I got really close a couple times however, I
would fall short from receiving the badge.
Something was holding me back from getting the badge and I had no idea
what I was doing wrong. I was striking out in the oral boards, and I
felt demoralized hearing about someone who just got their badge after
taking only two or three tests. “What on earth were they doing to get
the badge“??????? As you would say Captain Bob and Captain Rob,
“Presentation, preparation, patients and practice“.
After reading the material, listening to the CD’s and watching the DVD,
I started to understand I needed to change my ways of thinking. I grew
extremely excited to learn your material and I could see where I messed
up on past oral boards. I studied your material, practiced and tapped
into the coaching session. NOW I CAN SEE HOW TO DO IT THE RIGHT WAY! The
coaching was extremely helpful and gave me the confidences for my up
coming oral boards. I thought I was seeing the process in 180 degrees.
The program and coaching enabled me to view the oral in all 360
degrees. What an advantage.
The next oral board I had went incredibly well and, a few weeks after
the board I received the best phone call. “We would like to hire you on
to our Fire Department”, (MY ANSWER- YES, YES, YES, AND YES)
(STATED WITH THE UP MOST EXICITMENT). I get emotional every time
I think about that phone call. I won‘t ever forget that moment! This is
the moment in my life that I have been waiting for. It’s finally here
(THANK YOU GOD)!!! My recruit class starts in early March and I’m
looking forward to starting what I love doing, FIRE FIGHTING!
Captain Bob and Captain Rob Thank you for helping me make my dreams come
Sincerely, Eric S.
Reply: After taking 73 tests over ten years, Eric was able to turn it
around in two weeks to gain a badge. Eric said his dad is more excited
than he is (if that’s possible) and wants to drive him to his first day
at the academy like taking him to his first day at kindergarten. Ha.
counts 'til you have the badge . . . Nothing!"
