The main problem of psychological training of specialist in the field of technological safety is the formation of his motivation, adequate to professional goals and professional development. We studied the motivational sphere as a basis for the success of the professionalization and training of fire service specialists by identifying the different subgroups of subjects – the carriers of holistic integrative features that promote or hinder professional development. The empirical study involved students of the Training Center of the Federal Fire Service (age 20 to 52 years, the majority were men, 9 were women). On the basis of cluster analysis we identified risk groups for professional development. Significant differences were revealed between groups of officers and men of fire in the parameters of motivation of affiliation, fear of rejection and the level of empathy. Based on the study results, we defined the main problems of training specialists of Federal Fire Service.
