Montana Firefighter Testing Consortium
MFTC was officially formed in 1997 when the fire departments of 5 Montana municipalities agreed to conduct joint testing in order to create a pool of qualified applicants for the position of entry-level firefighter in those departments. Since 2001, MFTC has conducted an annual testing process toward that end.
As of 2021, the Consortium consists of the following members: Big Sky Fire Department, Billings Fire Department, Bozeman Fire Department, Butte Fire Department, Central Valley Fire District (Belgrade area), Frenchtown Rural Fire District, Great Falls Fire/Rescue, Havre Fire Department, Helena Fire Department, Lockwood Rural Fire District, Kalispell Fire Department, Miles City Fire Department, Missoula Fire Department, and Missoula Rural Fire District.
We appreciate your interest in a career in the fire service and hope you will consider participating in the Consortium’s upcoming testing process.
We are proud to be serving the citizens of the great State of Montana to the best of our abilities.

Registration is open for the May 18-21, 2020 testing. Registration is $85 until January 15th, then $100 until March 13th, 5 pm MST.
Testing will again be in Great Falls, MT.
This year we are trying something different with scheduling. Each day, the written test will be administered in the morning and afterwards, the CPAT will start. The course “Viewing” will take place Monday between written and physical and in the evening (around 7) for the following days.
The registration will require you to chose a 1st and 2nd choice for testing days, as there will be a limit for each day. To start with only Monday – Wednesday will be available. If those get close to filling up, then a Thursday option will open.
If this is your first time testing, PLEASE read the information on the other tabs prior to registering. If you have questions that were not answered on this web page, click the “Contact Us” link for options.
