  • CPAT test locations in TX?

    There used to be a company near Austin that did it, but it appears they no longer exist.

    Does anyone know of anything? preferably west / central Texas?

    I'm applying in another state, but live in TX.

    Thanks to all.

      Once again fire49, you are wrong and giving out incorrect information!! Tarrant County College's Fire Sevrice Training Center allows people to pay a fee and take a physical ability test (PAT) at their training center, but it's not the national CPAT. Once you successfully complete Tarrant County's PAT, you are given a certificate of completion which is good for 6 months. This PAT certifictate is recognized by several Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex fire department when you apply for employment with one of these fire departments. This started a few years ago in an effort to reduce many of the metroplex fire departments from each having to conduct their own PAT's.

      We were discussing the national CPAT a few shifts ago at my fire station. I believe both Plano FD and either the Austin place you spoke of or Austin FD still conduct the nationally-recognized CPAT. Both departments were some of the very first to try out the test when the CPAT was created years ago. I would contact both Plano and Austin FD to see if they allow individuals to pay to take their CPAT.


      Fire49:

      Go back to dealing with something you have actual knowledge of, like Call of Duty.

            The person who started this thread stated that they are looking to take the actual CPAT because they are wanting to test outside of the state of Texas.


            fire49,

            If you had spent a fraction of your time and effort in applying/studying/testing for an open position with fire departments instead of lurking on these forums, you might actually be a firefighter by now!

              Well the advice was to contact tarrant county college fire academy, with the thought to ask them if they new where he could cpat test, since they have a few contacts

              Sorry op I did not spell that out

              Also stated Texas has a different firefighter certification program


              As always advice on this forum is worth what you pay for it

                  Denusa go back and read fire49's posts. He said it himself. "As always advice on this forum is worth what you pay for it." Which means since it's a free forum, he's entitled to give inaccurate, generic information.

                    From a fan:::::

                    wth
                    Are you in the hiring process? Are you at least retired? Or did you get fired and are holding on to what you can?

                    All you do is cut n' paste links and offer generic advice. It's one thing to be on here and say "Hey I'm not a FF but I want to be." It's another thing to be on here acting like you're contributing.

                    You've admitted before you don't currently work for a department. So why do you come on here and chip in $0.02 of generic information like you've been on the job for years?

                    I can respect if it you're retired or fired after some years on. But if you're not in the business in any other way just come clean.
