    Can anyone clarify whether the test for trainee is pass/fail? I havent been studying because didn't think I was goint to be able to take the test because of work, but now it seems that I can. I haven't really been studying so I probably dont have a great shot if its just top test takers.

    The test for trainee is pass/fail and the trainee list will not be ranked

    I'm sure the cutoff will be at least 95% so study hard everyone. Take that book with you everywhere and soak it in the info a little at a time. I found it easier than trying to cram lots of info in one long sit down reading..

    Came from Miami 15 yrs ago, been with PF&R 10 years. Focus on the material given, the academy tests are a separate deal. Be sure to enjoy your time here.

    What'd everybody think? Piece of cake? I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of high scores on that one.

    Overall, I thought the test was not to bad. After taking the test, I looked through the study guide again, and I realized that I may of missed 6 or 7 questions on the portion based off of the study guide. Kind of kicking myself because I should have got those questions right. The general knowledge portion was pretty black and white. Anyone have any idea how low they will go on the Firefighter EMT-B/Paramedic list for an invite to the PAT? I know that this list is ranked, while the trainee list is just pass/fail. Good luck to you all.

    Anyone have any idea how many of the 3500 applications were for the trainee list and how many were for the FF-EMT? Also, how many do you all think actually showed up to test?

    Aprox 2000 showed up for the test, I don't know what the breakdown between the two was though.

    Default Is it really only 120 moving on?

    I feel like that's really low on a department the size of Portland. You have to think around 30pct of that will fail or not make it past the Physical or Interview portion?

    Wouldn't a big city need a bigger list to hire from?

    I'm pretty sure they said Aug. 15th, I do remember the woman from HR getting on the mic and saying Aug. 15th. I thought that was the day they'd be posting. Did anyone else hear something different?

    Seriously, it's a scan tron. 2 weeks is more than enough time.
