  • Do we have any idea when in 2013 they plan on hiring? I'm partially through the process now, I had a pretty good test score and passed the CPAT, but I'm waiting on the Poly/Medical/Psych stuff.

        • Are they still big on NREMT-Paramedics? It used to be a golden ticket, as long as your background was good.

            Uh...I passed the CPAT in February, and they said "We'll be in contact with you...its gonna be a few months before you hear anything."

            • I am curious if anyone who has already taken the Medical Evaluation could enlighten me as to what the fitness Assessment portion of the medical evaluation entails. I know that the Exercise Stress test is a certain amount of time on a treadmill hooked up to a heart monitor. I am curious because the other department I have taken a medical eval for only had the exercise stress test because CPAT was used as their fitness assessment. Thank you for any information that can be provided!

                    • @fireguy,

                      You're right, treadmill and heart monitor for about 10 minutes are included. Other things include a urine test, blood test, chest xray, and a short interview with a MD. Generally, it's pretty low key if you're fit and in shape and don't have any serious medical conditions. I originally received a "Class C" rating because of my eye sight, but it's correctable to 20/20, so I got "Class A".

                      Also, forgot to mention they have you complete an at home colon cancer screening test..

                        • If you are looking for a personal trainer in the DC area that is specifically geared towards CPAT testing take a look at www.wildfireadventures.com. I ran the recruit training, CPAT testing and several other programs for Washington DCFD. DCFD does not currently have classes in session nor are we testing. I’ve tested several hundred applicants and know what is needed to pass the test. If you’re looking to get in shape or have a specific goal in mind such as CPAT take a look at the site. Training is done in College Park.

                          • Has anyone been hearing anything? I completed the process and was told my packet was complete and in the hiring pool in July, but nothing since then. Any word on the next class, when it will be?

                              Buddy of mine just got picked up for a September class. He completed the process in February. I completed mine in May and have not heard anything, so probably gonna be Feb/March at the earliest, I would imagine.
