The California Fire Mechanics Academy in conjunction with both the Northern & Southern sections of the California Fire Mechanics Associations will be offering students several opportunities to take the Basic Electrical challenge exam.    Currently all students on the Fire Mechanic certification track are required to take the pre-requisite class (Basic Electrical – FM109) before they may enroll in the advanced electrical systems class Electrical Systems 2 – CFM215A.

Recognizing that some technicians may already have a good base knowledge of electricity and electrical systems, the CFMA offers a “prerequisite challenge” test.  Students who successfully pass this “challenge” test with an 80% or higher score become eligible to enroll in the Electrical Systems 2 class directly, bypassing the requirement to take the prerequisite Electrical Systems 1.

The fee for this test is $15 payable at the test site.  Students may only take the challenge test one time.  Please contact the CA Fire Mechanics Academy office 916-333-5044 or fax 916-333-5014 so we may get an estimate of students wanting to test.

The next two opportunities to take this test will be:
