What if I am not an incumbent employee of either BFP and BJMP?
If you are a private person but with interest in taking the examinations, you are still qualified. The CSC remained clear about the height requirements together with other qualifications listed above.
For the Fire Officer examination, you must be 21 to 35 years of age at the time of filing of applications with no height requirement needed. As for the Penology Officer examination, you must be 21 to 30 years of age with a height of 5'4" for male and 5'2" for female applicants.

Where to Apply?

If you pass the examination, you are granted the Eligibility for either Fire Officer or Penology Officer. Both eligibilities are considered second level by the CSC. This makes you qualified for second level rank positions in the BFP and BJMP offices. Last day of filing of applications for fire and penology officer examinations will be on January 22, 2016.
