    Heard anything yet? I'm surprised a process this large doesn't have a more active thread. Active threads here have given me a wealth of information previously.

    Don't be so sure. I'm an out of state guy. It's all about the written score now, from what I understand. I legitimately think I got every question right. I know for a fact I got all the audio, 53 questions, right.

    Anyone know how many they plan to take to cpat? And if they still give lottery numbers? Pretty sure I scored very highly. Just worried about background. Have been fired from two jobs in the past 5 years.

    Pretty much FL doesn?t play well with others.
    If you have proboard you?ll still have to test out in the middle of FL to get your fire cert. it?s ridiculous

    What's the reasoning that most Florida departments require Florida certifications? Just to cut out out-of-state applicants?

    it's an open competitive, but they're most likely gonna pull in locals with both FL fire & medic certs, not to mention the veterans with all certs.
    they'll run a class or two with people without any certifications because of the grant, but those classes are very few and far between.

    either way good luck

    Interesting. They finally emailed me back and said it wasn't required as part of the application. Not sure when I'd need it, though. Trying to get everything sorted out. I live quite far away (southern PA, to be exact), even though my legal address is now in Miami, so trying to limit the number of flights I'll need to take down.
