    Not 600 per day, 600 total.
    No where near as many people take the test as apply for the test.
    And many won't pass.
    So I hear at least, but I just empty the trash at City Hall so I don't know.

    I would have guessed my session had at least 400 people alone

    I agree with you Dirty Axe. Mine also had at least 400, if not more.

    Flipper123 I know to take your word on this issue, even though you just empty trash for city hall.

    well it is what it is. im glad to see only 600-800 took the test. better chances for all of us. easy to apply for a job then to show up. I'm glad the exam is over. Flipper123 is the Practice PAT coming up soon or still pending? You have good intel for us and we appreciate it. so thanks again.

    Someone said TFD is waiting on the Chief to give approval for the next step, which is the PAT.
    He needs approval from the City Manager.
    So somewhere between now and 2015?
    Get in shape, stay in shape, then you will always be ready.
    Curiously just like the job, from what I hear.

    thanks for the heads up. cant wait to find out what my score was. getting an approval from the city manager might be tough, but tfd can do it. getting a safer grant would be great. so lets wait and see. thanks again flipper123. take it easy

    No clue, but it was my assumption that Bands = score on test.

    so ranks are based on score. for an example: if 5 people scored a 100 but had vet points they would have a total score of 110 and they would be all ranked number 1, and so on. scores are in and its almost time for the PAT. you can score great but blow it at the PAT. the PAT is not like the CPAT. very tough. so prep for the best. wish you all the best

    As long as you are ranked in the top 10, that's all that matters and now it's time to prep for the PAT. Great job on the written exam!

    The PAT's have not been scheduled yet.
    When they are, you will know the process is moving forward.
    Sucks, but it is what it is.

    Late September for PAT.
    Practice PAT sessions in Late Aug early Sept.
    Could just be a rumor, nothing finalized.
    So I hear.
