      No, you do not have to live in the city when the background investigator does its visit. However when you start the academy you absolutely must live in the city. They will follow you home and if they find out you do not stay in the city you will be dropped.

      If you do not live in the city by the time the academy starts you can waive your invitation to the academy until the next academy. Kind of like saving your progress in a video game and coming back to your recently saved point without having to start over.

      This way you don’t move in a hurry and then end up not getting an invitation. That would be awkward.

        Thank you, i've been house shopping, but haven't moved yet because i haven't got my CPAT yet due to it being cancelled multiple times because of cornoavirus and i haven't heard back from the BI about my background yet. Once i get my CPAT i plan on moving ASAP.

        Thanks for the info

          Pass: cpat, medical, BI and get an invite before you move. Ok maybe not an invite to academy unless you want to play it safe

            • What is the first steps after you check in, do they do drug test, than background check? Do you get any communication at all? Or does it all start when you get a phone call from background investigator?

                After you do your initial processing the background investigator contacts you. Once the background investigation is finished you wait for a medical invitation. When you get in for the medical investigation you get drug tested and schedule your medical examination. Once you finish your examination you will either be cleared or you will receive a phone call indicating you need to see a specialist for whatever reason they give you. Then you wait for an invitation to do final processing.

                • Does anyone know if CFD will accept out of state CPAT?

                  Comment


                  • All CPAT’s are the same, yes they have to accept it.

                      Me asking CFD HR:

                      “Is it ok to do a CPAT through a facility that is “limited licensed” through IAFF? Is there a nationwide list of available places to take CPAT? Thank you for your time.”

                      CFD HR:

                      ”No, Do not use a limited license facility.”

                      Make sure that your CPAT is fully licensed. I’ve come to a conclusion that fully licensed facilities tend to be fire academies that host fire department candidates. However, that’s what I have deduced, not factual. Hope this helps.

                        PS: I ended up just getting my CPAT done at NIPSTA.

                          • has anyone heard anything from CFD regarding CPAT? MABAS 24 just posted on their Facebook.

                            ** Chicago Fire Department candidates currently in the hiring process** check your emails in regards to CPAT

                            Processed in March, haven't got an email about anything

                                No one has received a medical invitation since February. Highly doubtful the class will start May 18th like we had previously been led to believe.
