  • Excuses Excuses

    For anyone getting ready to take the CPAT. This was posted on our email system from someone who helped administer the test a few weeks ago.



    The Excuse Board used at CPAT. Actual excuses used by applicants ( We don't make this stuff up).
    All of these were used by the applicants after they failed the test.

    I didn't eat
    I ate too much
    I ate at Taco Bell

    The proctor slowed me down

    I am not an "Afternoon person"
    The course is confusing
    I have allergies
    I worked out this morning
    The ladder was under control (while lowering the rope, he let go)
    I am Sick
    I got Asthma
    My feet are too big (for the stepmill)
    If I could just use my own gloves
    I think you changed the course
    If you could speed up the stepmill, I wouldn't stumble so much
    I am only 5 minutes late (for his test)
    I had the wrong vest size
    I was out of the country

    I have a bad knee
    I have water on the knee
    I couldn't get a grip on it
    I didn't want to burn out
    I didn't know where to go on the course
    I had the flu, last week
    I need bigger steps (stepmill)
    I didn't want to get dirty
    I didn't train because the video made it look so easy
    I didn't get any sleep last night
    I didn't lean on the rails that much (stepmill)
    I got lost in the maze
    I made it through before (years ago)
    I have a pinched nerve in my toe
    I was a marine. I can do this. I've done 25 mile humps before ( failed Miserably)
    I got a cramp
    I feel through a roof (while roofing)

    Questions asked:
    How long will this take? I have an appointment to make
    Do I get a break for my age? (34)
    Can you hold my inhaler?
    Can I carry gatorade with me?
    Whats the course record ? (Did not get off the stepmill)
