    • Does anyone have any insights on being a probie for LA County? How long is the probationary period? Do you switch stations every few months? Thanks.

        Year long probation comprised of two 6 month spots. You can try to stay at your second spot or attempt to go elsewhere

        • Looking for anyone’s experience: has anyone done a CPAT at multiple locations? I have done the CPAT many times at the same location however, it’s cancelled. I am looking at South El Monte as it seems to be closest to me. I’m wondering if making the trip for the orientation is worth it or just to show up and know it will be similar enough? Thoughts and experience?

            They should be the exact same. I wouldn’t waste time going to the orientation if you have already done the CPAT before

              I can confirm. I've done a bunch in Orange and did my most recent one in South El Monte. Like Jman said, they are identical. Good luck!

                A bull**** CPAT is a bull**** CPAT. If you can’t figure it out then may god rest your souls.

                  Is this a riddle? If so I get it. If there’s something more, maybe not.

                        Not at all. I try to beat 7 minutes. Just was asking as I have only one “path” I’ve used. Same dummy, same halyard with slippery nylon rope, etc.
