    Ciandebaldo,

    Came from Miami 15 yrs ago, been with PF&R 10 years. Focus on the material given, the academy tests are a separate deal. Be sure to enjoy your time here.

      • What'd everybody think? Piece of cake? I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of high scores on that one.

        • Overall an easy test, I know I goofed on 2 of the questions though. I wonder what the cutoff will be????

            • Overall, I thought the test was not to bad. After taking the test, I looked through the study guide again, and I realized that I may of missed 6 or 7 questions on the portion based off of the study guide. Kind of kicking myself because I should have got those questions right. The general knowledge portion was pretty black and white. Anyone have any idea how low they will go on the Firefighter EMT-B/Paramedic list for an invite to the PAT? I know that this list is ranked, while the trainee list is just pass/fail. Good luck to you all.

              • last test they took the top 120 + ties to interviews and PAT's. If you have any questions on the last process PM me and I have some info on the process from the last test.

                • Anyone have any idea how many of the 3500 applications were for the trainee list and how many were for the FF-EMT? Also, how many do you all think actually showed up to test?

                    Aprox 2000 showed up for the test, I don't know what the breakdown between the two was though.

                    • Does anybody know how the written and orals are weighted? ie. 50/50?

                      • Is it really only 120 moving on?

                        I feel like that's really low on a department the size of Portland. You have to think around 30pct of that will fail or not make it past the Physical or Interview portion?

                        Wouldn't a big city need a bigger list to hire from?
