      • Yes all recruits do all the same fire skills testing regardless of certs.

          • Did Fairfax change their recruitment process recently? I've passed the written and turned in my CPAT letter from another county, so I assumed next would be a polygraph, but the Governmentjobs.com status that they hammered into us at the orientation as the reference for our current application status reads "medical exam." Should I call and ask or has this been everyone else's experience as well?

            • From my understanding, after the CPAT there is no set order of tests. It has to due with appointment availability and if you're coming from out of state.

              • There is no order in the next steps of the process. If your out of state they will do all 3 over the span of 3 days.

                • Great, thanks for the quick replies. I'll just continue to stand by until they contact me for scheduling then.

                    • Anyone know if the calls are still going out for the September class? And I was reading the previous posts about the size of the class but the numbers mentioned vary. Any updates? Thanks in advance for the information!

                      • I believe they are working on filling a few more spots as of last week.

                          • I just finished the process last week. Haven't received a completion letter yet, but the psychologist said he was giving me a recommendation in my favor. I started a medic class as well in the beginning of August...other than that is there anything I can do to get my name out there for an upcoming academy? Or should I finish the class and then try?

                            • Unfortunately, after you complete the process and receive your letter, it's pretty much a waiting game for up to two years. Occasionally following-up with recruitment can possibly be beneficial. Getting a Paramedic certification will definitely help increase your chances (I'm not sure about Intermediates since the county doesn't recognize incoming I's as ALS any longer.

                              And to everyone who's curious, I heard February is the next class after September.

                              • I've always wondered but does anybody know like how many people on average that makes it through the recrutment process or at least the percentage of people who make it through. I did hear though that 95% fail the polygraph not to sure on that number though
