    Amazon backpack is not a good idea in my opinion because the weight is not distributed evenly. Plus it might put a strain on your back. Buy 80lb vest start low and increase 4-5lb a week. I Started at 40lb

      That’s an excellent way to mess up your back. Passed my CPAT last year. Just bite the bullet and get a cheap vest online somewhere.

      i bought a 60 lb vest from Target, trained for a month with it, then returned it

      • Has anyone that processed earlier this month heard anything on their BI?

          Cheap as Hell lol Think of it more as an investment, you don’t only need to buy it to pass the CPAT, keep it, use it.

              I agree it is an investment. I spent like 250 bucks on mine and well worth it. Used to wear it every day at the gym now since they are all closed for the time being I wear it every other day at work.

I took the test back in 14 and have been waiting for a call, my question is do they call numbers in order? I’m non preference 33** Like some other people on here I just want to make sure I didn’t miss an email or slip through the cracks. Stay Safe out there.
                I am around that number, if you get an email can you circle back here? I will do the same.

                  In retrospect since all the gyms are closed I wish I would’ve kept it

                    • I know things right now are probably backed up at the offices, but has anyone been waiting a long time to get called in for their medical evaluation ( which I believe is final part of processing ) ?

                        Had a friend call and spoke with HR regarding next wave of medical and they told him sometime in May he will be contacted

                          I’ve been waiting, I processed nov14 had BI come out near the end of January did everything he asked and he said he was handing my portfolio back to HR. He contacted me yesterday asking to explain a speeding ticket from 2015 . ??? I’m just wondering if he ever gave my portfolio back or has been holding on to it.

                            When did your friend process, when did he call?

                              May have had to send your application in for review, then they caught something that wanted an explanation. I’m in the same boat. Waiting to hear for medical scheduling.

                                I believe he processed November 14th. I would have to confirm that. He called 2 weeks ago.
