Cadet hiring generally occurs in odd-numbered years. Our Fire Cadets attend a seven-month, paid training academy where they must pass both the state-administered Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and the Firefighter certified exam before graduating. After graduation, an individual becomes a probationary firefighter for six months prior to reaching full-status as an Austin Firefighter.
