The skills testing for FF 1 and 2 is a random sampling of all possible skills in each certification level. There are multiple skill possibilities at each station, however the candidate will only be required to perform 1 skill at each station.
2013 policy changes in the Kentucky process require ten (10) skill stations to be completed by the candidate for FF1 with 100% competency. FF2 testing will consist of six (6) skill stations with a required 100% competency. Hazardous Materials Operations  PPE and Product Control (NFPA 1072:2017 Chapters 5, 6.2 and 6.6) are required pre-requisites for firefighter certification. Four (4) Haz Mat skill stations will be offered on the same test day as FF2 for the benefit of those needing the required certification. A POLICY CHANGE ON MARCH 1, 2014 PROHIBITS STAND-ALONE HAZ-MAT OPS SKILLS TESTING DURING FF2 TESTING. Candidates must test FF2 skills with Haz Mat. Candidates needing ONLY Haz Mat Operations must test following an organized course of the subject matter OR a scheduled skills test session that consists of ALL Haz Mat Operations (NFPA 1072:2017 Chap 5) Ops Product Control (NFPA 1072:2017 Chap 6.6)and Haz Mat PPE (NFPA 1072:2017 Chap 6.2).
Testing requires the use of PPE, therefore candidates for testing are required to bring full PPE and SCBA which shall be NFPA 1971 compliant. Each test day will expose the candidate to potential IDLH atmospheres with live-fire scenarios, therefore all candidates MUST be clean shaven to the point that facial hair does NOT come between the facepiece seal and the face.
Candidates are NOT permitted to have copies of skill sheets and/or reference material at the tesing site.
Candidates for testing must bring completed FF1, FF2, and Haz Mat Operations Product Control certification applications to the testing site. These applications are to be signed by the candidate and the department chief or designee attesting the candidates competency in the required NFPA objectives.
Also, due to current NFPA requirements for certification, candidates shall show competency in medical training.  Candidates shall bring a copy of a current CPR Pro or Health Care Provider card AND current First Aid, First Responder, EMT or Paramedic certification.
