When you are ready to test, be sure to have:

  • Your TCFP Online Exam Eligibility Form (must match your ID)
  • $20 for the testing fee

Currently enrolled cadets with San Jac's Firefighter Training Academy are exempt from paying the $20 testing fee owed to San Jac. Note: this does not include any fees owed directly to TCFP and assessed through FIDO accounts.

If you're a current cadet, please speak with your instructor about appropriate testing for you.

San Jac Testing Centers have a responsibility to faculty, students and the community to maintain testing integrity and appropriately respond to any infractions that may occur. We administer TCFP in accordance with policy, rules and guidelines set forth by the Texas Commission on Fire Protection.
