Training Guidelines

Posted in Canadian Wildland Firefighter Fitness Testing

Listed are a collection of current and past training manuals, guidelines, and reference materials published from several different fire agencies. Some are brief whereas others are very detailed and comprehensive. We suggest you review these materials when developing your plans to prepare for the WFX-FIT Test. If you are unfamiliar or unaccustomed to the physical demands required, we strongly suggest you discuss your plans to increase your physical activity with your physician before you start training.
