KOC Conducts Tests for Firefighter Applicants

As part of a collaborative effort between the Fire Group and the Training & Career Development Group, fitness and ability tests were recently conducted for individuals who applied for firefighter job openings at KOC. The tests were conducted in the presence of Manager Fire Group Faisal Mirza and a number of Team Leaders and instructors.


During the event, Mirza welcomed the applicants and explained the important role firefighters play in the Company’s emergency response system, in addition to the prominent humanitarian role they hold by protecting the local community. Mirza then encouraged those in attendance to put forth their best efforts in order to pass the tests, which were designed in accordance with the strictest international standards. Applicants who pass the initial tests and examinations will then be assigned to KOC’s foundational firefighter course before assuming positions within the Company. 


Chief Fire Officer Fahad Al-Foudari from the Training Department of the Organization Resilience Team then discussed the various stages associated with the tests, in addition to presenting information which touched on the safety procedures which are closely followed at the test site. He concluded that the tests adhere to the most current standards within the field, and that those who pass will qualify for the KOC firefighter course.
