    No New visible tattoos. I'm not allowed to get a tattoo that is visible while in uniform. Not sure how that will apply to new hires. My advice would be to cover them up during the process. If you have a sleeve tattoo I would wear long sleeves for the CPAT. There is no reason to draw unwanted attention. Thats just my opinion. I have a few tattoos and I'm not going to discuss whether i agree or disagree with new policy, because it doesn't matter what I think. That is just the way it is.

      I wonder why the results are pushed back. Possibly to get everyone on the same page? Judging from written to CPAT times last year, are we looking at late March early April for CPAT this year?

        Thanks KY I have a few friends I have around the Dept. and they all pretty much said the same thing I just wanted to double and triple check ! Hopefully I will be riding along side of you next year ! You got hired like 2 years ago or last year right ? Where are you working ?

          Wow, thats very surprising! I thought on the morning of the 15th there was as many as there was in my test last year. Maybe they didn't hold as many test sessions. That doubles my chances as compared to last year!

          As others have said, I too believe several people were far from prepared for this test.

              So I was talking to a Capt. with Charlotte (friend of mine I used to work with.)He said that the number of testers were way above the number 1,700 that we heard ealier in this thread. Has anyone else heard anything of the sort ? The grim number I heard was about 5,300 ! I really hope he was pulling my leg ... but surely he looked like he was very serious !

                I think everyone you talk to is going to have a different number. 5,300 may have applied, but with only testing approximately 200 per test session, I don't see how that is feasible.

                    I just can't see that being feasible. There wasn't that many last year even, and they didn't advertise nearly as much this year. I believe last year that approximately 1,000 went to the CPAT. I believe that's what the lady at the CPAT said.

                      this is false, i was down in Charlotte days before the test and had the opportunity to speak with the a newly retired deputy chief from Charlotte. he told me personally only 1,700 applicants took the exam this year.
