    Less than that, there were originally 6 test dates but one was canceled, leaving just 5. It is usually around 100 people per test date which comes out to around 500 people.. I know of two different test dates one was 102 people (the one i went to) and the other (my friend went to) was 105, and even then some people didn't show up to test at all, there were a couple empty spots.. so I would say it is definitely less than 600 people, even less than 500 in my opinion. The number of people that can actually apply will be even lower because I myself know of 6 people that failed the PAT (Yes people did fail this PAT). So unless there were a couple test dates that tested 150 people or so (which I doubt because Broward fire academy does cap the number around 100) there are going to be less than/around 500 people applying.

    The first day was cancelled, the second had 32, I went the third day and there was 80, so yeah there is probably closer to 450 maybe even less than that. Any word on when they will start taking applications?

    Idk, there was about 40 ppl Monday when I took it. Does anyone know when the beach will start the process? And if they are still going to be doing the BAP test?

    Wow 40 huh, I would have expected more.. I know a few people that were just too lazy to get the PAT done, I guess I shouldn't be complaining. Would imagine the applications open up within the next two weeks, at least that would be ideal. I heard from one friend that they do use BAP still.

    No, not the slightest clue on how many they are looking for... I was reading a previous years handout and and the PAT tests days were in September, then it says whoever passes the BAP has an Orientation early November.. So thats what, 2 months.. maybe it will be the same time frame this year, if so, that means they should get the ball rolling here shortly. Of course I'm only guessing lol.

    No word on when they are starting the process. But I have heard mixed rumors about using the BAP OR a written test. So who knows. I hope they get this started.

    When the PAT dates were first posted in march I called my buddy who works on the Beach, he told me that from what he was hearing, they were switching to a written test. He wasn't positive but thats what he was hearing.

    Any " news" yet? Heard they are finishing up promotions, but who knows. It seems a pretty long wait to start a process when they announced it in Febuary.

    A good friend of mine says that the Beach is definitely hiring 12 and trying to get the approval to hire 14. He very good friends with a chief at the beach but I'm not sure which one.
