Are you seeking a promotion to the next level?


Chief, I wanted to thank you, Chief Johns, and Fire Assessment Center Prep. I met you guys in 2013, and 4 promotions later here I am embarking on a new chapter as a Battalion Chief. Thank you!!!

Battalion Chief Rafael Zayas, New Haven Fire Department

Chief Fernandez, I just wanted to thank you and your program for preparing me thoroughly for my Chief of Department at Assessment Center. Prior to your course and one on one sessions I was very apprehensive about the entire AC process. But through your course work and personal guidance I felt completely prepared and ready for anything that the AC would present. This was reflected in my score being 17 points higher than the next closets candidate. As a result of my strong showing in the AC as well as a strong interview I was able to earn my promotion. Thank you for all your guidance.

Chief Anthony Marrama, Fitchburg Fire Department

Chief Freddie was great and very helpful. He has a wealth of knowledge for test prep.

Christian Flores

Chief Freddie was always available and he gave extra time for the sessions. No doubt my score improved thanks to this help.

I was entering a very competitive promotional process and used Police Assessment Center Prep to help me score the best that I could. I looked at several assessment center preparation resources but chose Police Assessment Center Prep because it was the most comprehensive one by covering all parts of the assessment center you might face including interview questions, in/out basket, presentations, scenarios, meetings, role plays and counseling sessions. I found the video lessons really helpful in teaching strategies to organize and approach each event of the assessment center and I also used the private coaching sessions. The private coaching was really helpful in practicing the strategies from the video lessons, building confidence and getting feedback from someone who is familiar with how assessment center applicants are scored. I finished with the second highest assessment center score and am now in a strong position on the final rankings to get promoted. I can strongly recommend Police Assessment Center Prep with Chief Freddie and would definitely use their services again.

Chief Freddie, I had heard about you from a few people from other departments that had taken your class. I was told that you were an excellent trainer and that your classes helped them get promoted. I must say, it is an understatement. From the moment I signed up to your program, I immediately felt like I made the right choice. You contacted me within 5 minutes and already provided me with the tools to begin my journey. Thank you for not only meeting but exceeding my expectations.

Chief Freddie is very informative and organized. I love that he does not baby you and walks you through scenarios and makes you think outside the box. Will come back and RE rate once I have taken the exam.

I would like to thank Chief John and Chief Freddie for the professional service they both provide in preparation of my promotion exam. I used their program and I am proud to say I scored #1 on my FD list. I was promoted to Lt on 3/23/20. Testing was always difficult for me, I have taken this test a few times now and after using their program it paid off. I want to THANK both of you for a great preparation program you put together for preparing for promotional exams.

Chief Freddie is a great coach. I feel so confident about my promotional exam by watching his videos and doing the personal coaching. Could not have asked for a better program.

S.C. Miami Police

Chief Freddie, I want to thank you for your program. I finished in the top 5 overall and look forward to my promotion in the near future. I cannot thank you enough, I didn’t know where to start, you broke it down from step one to the point where I felt extremely confident going into the assessment. Please continue to make people’s promotional aspirations come true.

Andrew, Miami Beach Police Department

Chief Fernandez: I am sending this email to personally thank you for coaching me during my promotional exam preparation. This thank you also serves as affirmation that your process is proven. For my Lieutenant’s exam the field was much more competitive and there were significantly less positions; only 2 guaranteed. I decided to invest in myself and subscribe to your method. Although I felt very confident in my knowledge, skills, and ability, our first session made if very apparent to me that I had not even began to scratch the surface of the elements necessary to maximize my assessment score. Each one of your methods, from the problem-solving model to the particular order of the way one should introduce information, was a clear advantage in the assessment center. In fact, when I was presented with my scenarios, I thought, “There is no way that these are exactly what I prepared for with Freddie. There must be a curveball somewhere.” There was no curveball, but if there were I would have been ready for that as well because your coaching gave me the confidence to: prioritize, not panic, think outside the box, and handle whatever comes my way. Not only were those skills useful during the assessment center, but I will apply them throughout the rest of my career. After the final scoring I placed #2 (only 0.5 points behind the #1 candidate) and unbeknownst to me, he had also utilized your coaching! Once again, words cannot express my gratitude, and I encourage anyone who is preparing for an assessment center to subscribe to your method.

Delvin Brown, Lieutenant

Chief Freddie, I want to thank you for preparing me for the assessment aspect of the promotional process. I went in not having a clue of what to expect. Your teaching and program not only gave me hope but gave me a ton of confidence. I can honestly say that I would not have been as prepared as I was without having received your training. The training not only helped me for the assessment, but it gave me a base for any incident that I have encountered after being promoted. Furthermore, it has helped me with public speaking. I finished 4th in the promotional list and was promoted to Sergeant a few months ago. I highly recommend Chief Freddie to those seeking to receive the best training to prepare you for the assessment. Lastly, he is a great person and a professional. God bless.

Wilson, Miami Beach Police Department

I want to take this opportunity to thank Chief Freddie for preparing me for the assessment center (I/O Solutions). After scoring an 89 and ranking #9 on the written test, I was disappointed, but my assessment score brought me up to #1 on the list and I was promoted. Chief Freddie's coaching not only helped me for the test, but on the job as well. Chief Freddie, thank you again!

Lieutenant Lozano, Miami Beach Police Department

Hey Chief Freddie, I just wanted to say thank you for all your help.. I came out number 1, I’ll be getting promoted this week.

Cliff R., Fire Captain

Hey Chief,

Final job offers were given for Dallas Fire Rescue. I start on May 4th! I can’t thank you enough for the training and Captain Dickerson for the reference. I will see you again in a few years for promotion!

Thanks again, Wes Hughes

Chief Freddie Fernandez went above and beyond to help me in every way possible so that I could “Ace” my Physician Assistant interview. The training shows results with my 75 out of 75 points on my interview. I will definitely be recommending FACP to many others. Thank you again Chief Freddie Fernandez. With your help and practice it can be done.

Denise L.

Good morning Chief,
Friday afternoon BSO made it official and promoted 11 of us to the rank of lieutenant. Thank you so much for your help and we’re looking forward to seeing you again in 3yrs for our captain test.


Chief(s) I just wanted to touch base with both of you. On Friday 3/18/16 the LT promotional list was finalized for the Cape. I am pleased to announce that my final overall score placed me number 1 on the list a full 5 points above second place.

Funny enough it turns out the second place individual was also working with you. Neither one of us had any knowledge of the other working with you until about 30 min ago. His score was 2 full points above 3rd place. With that be said it has me scoring 7 full points above the first individual who did not train with you.

So in summary we are pleased to say both first and second trained with you and really appreciate all your help. We will tentatively be promoted at the start of the pay period, this coming Saturday 3/26/16. Thank you!

Hello Chief Johns, this is Justin Gillig, i took your new hire interview class a while ago. I’m pleased to inform you that i got employment with Palm Beach County Fire rescue the first time being interviewed, after taking this course and will be in class 64 in February. I would also like to note that the last interview i had with Palm Beach Gardens fire rescue, before i took this class, i actually failed that interview, after doing great on every other process of that hiring. Your class is well worth the money and thank you for your time.

My name is Juan Castaneda and we spoke brief last March when I was preparing for my promotional exam for Fire lieutenant. I was recently promoted to Lieutenant last week and wanted to thank you for the phone conversation and the guidance and help from the courses I purchased from your website. They were extremely helpful in my confidence during the testing process. Once again I wanted to say thank you and look forward to speaking with you in the future when it’s time for the Captains test.

I wanted to let you know I am ranked #7 out of 197 people for the assesment center portion of the Captains exam for HFD. I scored a 28.539 out of 33.33 total points. The number one guy scored a 29.270 so I am less than 1 point behind him. Thanks for all your help in the skype session as well as the great class!

Ben Perry

I would like to thank you for your services during my last promotional exam. Your service definitely help me get in the top 5 and I just got the phone call that I have been promoted to Lieutenant. Thank you again!

Dear Chief,
I am excited to inform you that I performed very well in the assessment process!! So first some statistical data. I scored very low on the written test and I knew I would need to knock it out of the park on the practical. I scored a 73 on the written, and this placed me 33 on the list of 44 people who passed the test.

I received a perfect score from the assessment process!! All 5's, in all categories! This has been a true blessing from God. I'm extremely thankful for your program and assistance in this journey. This perfect score resulted in my placement from 33 on the list, to a final 9th place over all.

Many have asked how this perfect score was obtained, and all are informed that through the actions of the Lord, and assistance obtained from your program it was accomplished. I can't thank you enough, and I will continue to promote your program to all who ask.

So from the bottom of my heart, Thank you! I encourage you to continue to do the wonderful work you are offering. Please continue to help promote the fine people of these departments in order to serve our communities and ultimately serve God.
