    I'm not sure about the fire chief rumor. I'm just excited about the CPAT orientation next week. Does anyone know when the actual CPAT exam is?

    I did hear the rumor about the new county exec but nothing about the chief. My orientation is tomorrow at 7pm and am travelling quite a ways. Wanted to see if anyone knew how long it is expected to be so I can plan my travel accordingly. Also I scored lower than an 85 but still received an invite to the orientation. When I called PGHR they told me that if I received a letter that I was being considered for hire and because of disqualifications and job declines I have moved up into the top percentage of applicants. I just don't know if it means I have a very good shot of getting the nod for the academy or if I'm in the bottom of the barrel at this point. Anyone with any information would be great.

    What do you mean process? Filling out the blue book or have you met with investigators?

    No. They just scheduled the interview for some time next week. Hopefully we'll get the same call in the next few days.

    Still waiting. Apparently PSI is backed up with all the applicants.

    I'm still waiting as well. Apparently they are backlogged with the large number of applicants. PSI is independent from the fire dept. so they go at their own pace I guess.
    A friend of mine already had his background interview and just got a call to schedule his panel interview for this month. I was assured however that everything is still on track for me, just running a little behind.

    He had his about 2 weeks ago.
    I just had my oral board interview today and haven't been contacted by PSI yet, so there really is no time frame for anything.
