  • Anyone hear from Arlington COunty, VA

    Hey,

    I took the written Arlington County exam three weeks ago and am waiting to hear back. Have you any of you guys gotten anything yet?

      The test was 2 weeks ago, they said it would take 3 to grade

        Yeah, they said 2-3 weeks, which means 3+ really. But, we're close to that so it shouldn't be much longer.

        I'm assuming they send out an e-mail in reference to the grades, or is there some where else you have to look?

          I don't know if they're sending out letters, emails, or both.

            I also have heard that they are only hiring 17 people and they're looking only for medics. Anyone else hear this?

              Interesting... considering the position that was advertised was Firefighter/EMT Trainee I'm pretty sure.

                I recently left the ACFD, and they do not hire only medics. They have a process that after Recruit School you are on probation for one year with two tests to pass. After that, they may ask/require you to go depending on the departments need. You will sign a contract that you will eventually get your ALS certs. You maybe confusing the rumor with Alexandria Fire that does have a separate system for EMS that will hire medics only.

                  I hope you guys are right. I'm just reciting what someone else applying told me.

                  I did hear from Arlington today and was invited to take the CPAT. Anyone else get letters?

                  I'm actually a bit annoyed it took so long since it means that I've already missed the first 4 practice sessions though.

                          I received my letter saying I passed also. Does anyone know how many are moving on to CPAT?
