      I scored 100 on the interview and was told my background looked good from the PIQ. Just playing the waiting game now.

I came from out of state and had an interview in January and PIQ the next day. Haven't heard anything about being assigned an investigator yet though.
            sjabbott I'm also coming from out of state. They are asking us do bring a copy of your CPAT with our PHF packet. Do you know if the CPAT has to be done in CA or can it be from National Testing Network?

              Either one should be good. I did mine through NTN and brought the CPAT letter with me. Make sure that your emt license and cpat wont expire anytime soon though. They wont start a background on you until those are both current.

              • SanchoV also make sure to go downstairs after your interview and get your fingerprints taken. Some people didnt do that and they had to drive back the next day after completing the PIQ. Itll save you a lot of time and effort to just knock them out right after the interview. If you ask the person at the front desk, they'll be able to tell you where to go

                  • No problem, send me a message if you have any other questions before the interview.

                    • @sjabbott, Thanks for the info! Do you know if you have to meet all the basics in the physical? I?ve been working on my pull ups since that is my weak area. They?re killer and of course I?m a bigger guy. I should be good by then. Thanks again!

                        They didnt really say much about it other than people that cant hit the minimums statistically have a very low chance at making it through the academy.

                            How long ago did you finish backgrounds?

                              • Has anyone ever came up short on one of the Physical requirements such as pull ups, push ups, etc and still made it through? I know if you fail three your done. Right now I?m good in every area but pull ups are difficut for me. I?m going hard that?s for sure! I have a month and two weeks I hope I can get to 8 or more before.
