  • I assume I’m on the same boat as most you on this, but I’m just trying to somewhat be ahead of the curve. My cpat expires in April, would you guys suggest I get it done again or just play the waiting game?

          Here is what the job description says:
          1. A current and valid CPAT certificate or proof of appointment to take the CPAT examination, by submitting a copy of the email from FCTC showing that payment was received, your scheduled date, time and location of your appointment. Applicants who do not have a current and valid CPAT certificate, but have an appointment to be tested for a CPAT certificate, may apply to this examination but will be withheld from the eligibility list until an official copy of a valid CPAT certificate is submitted. Either the CPAT certificate or proof of an appointment must be provided with the application at the time of filing or within fifteen (15) calendar days of submitting your online application.
          NOTE: It is the candidate's responsibility to maintain a current and valid CPAT certification that remains valid until final appointment, and a current valid, non-probationary EMT–P license issued by the State of California Emergency Medical Services Authority that will remain effective for six months beyond the date of final appointment.

                      • Umm according to my BI, during backgrounds it’s OK if it lapses, however; you need to be able to prove that you’re actively trying to correct the issue, ie a receipt for your next CPAT.
