    Yea same here. I plan to get it out the way on the first timed practice. I was at a cpat facility in fairfax and simulated in test and passed it. So I'm no too worried about the cpat. Just wished I didn't have to attend the mandatory walk through sessions. The oral interview is what I'm focused on now but that isn't for sometime. It really shouldn't be any excuses for not passing the cpat giving all the opportunities and sessions at hand. 3 Chances at Cpat is more than fair.

      That's also true but when a job is so appealing, the only good odds are 1 out of 1. I'm just going to cross my t's and dot my i's and hope for the best.

      Did you guys get an impression that a college degree was more important than EMT, less important than EMT, or about the same?

        The only confirmation I got was the CPAT status showing as "Pass".

          i'd say about the same. maybe a little more important. I'd say theres less people with a bachelors degree then there are with an EMT card.

          if you don't get the call make sure you reapply. i know the guy who was sitting behind me made a comment about if you're going through the process and you made it all the way through last time you have no shot and thats simply not true...the department I work for i made it through the entire process and didn't make the final cut, re-applied and then got hired.

                  top pay is $90,000 for a firefighter. The shortest amount of time I know in with that salary has 21 years on.

                  It seems that the academy length depends on prior certs...some seem to run 2-3 months and some run around 6. months.

                  majors are important. respect everyone, especially if their shirt is white.

                      • Well I already got my CPAT cert in so I guess I moved along the process a little faster. He just wanted me to fill out the blue book within this week and call him to schedule an interview after I was done. So does this technically mean I'm in the top 200?

                        • No offense to you sir, but I hope that is the case. It could make sense to get some people started.

                            • I got thinking, and I was wondering if there was any sort of process of putting candidates on a list and if so, if there was any point where candidates would then be informed of those hypothetical numbers. It would be nice to know how good or bad to feel as we continue through this process. If anyone that has been through the process before had any information it would be great. Thanks to all and best of luck as always.
