    How come they stopped you before the 8-Min mark?

    He probably stopped, or they saw something with his HR that worried them.

    Damn! Usually if you're a little over the first time they tell you to come back; the second time they just monitor for fatigue and cadence no?

    Yes, but my guess he probably stopped, not sure though. Hey, he gave it shot, and I wish him luck with his future. I don't know what happens next.
    Maybe someone else with get the opportunity......

    I'm going to assume a department doctor was evaluating your progress and stopped you because they didn't like whatever they saw. You only get one do over.

    What I said was like you said, guys getting OT is the only benefit to this.

    And I will never turn down advice from someone on the job even if they are only a day on. So this is only beneficial to someone who will use the mentor program in the right manner.

    That's a full minute over what was required. I'm assuming you were over and they were looking to see if you could keep going. Sorry to hear it, but you needed to find 2 more minutes or so and you would've been good. I don't think you get another shot nor do I believe you should. Try again next test.

    I must not be making myself clear here so I'm going to reiterate that I don't fault you, the candidates or the mentors. I simply don't like that the city is taking this process out of the hands of the guys in the houses you will go to in an effort to shape the job to their politically correct liking. That's what I think this program is geared towards doing. I fully believe you and the other good guys on here are going to take some good info away from this, and I'm glad there will be extra money in the brothers' pockets, but I respectfully disagree with the city officials who started it in the first place. That's all I'm saying. If it sounded like I'm bashing you guys for participating, I honestly apologize. That wasn't my intent.

    I was at cpat training today, and heard there is a height/weight standard. I'm not too worried about it, but does anyone know what those numbers are? I hadn't heard of this before, just curious.

    Maybe they are talking about depending on your weight, you need to be a certain height, or vise versa. Someone will fill us in.....

    Yea, I'm thinking it's like in the military, if you're this tall, you must weigh under this weight. I hadn't heard the fdny using this, and couldn't find it published on the web... Just wondering.

    That's absolutely true. If you are judged overweight according to their charts you will be put on medical hold until you lose the weight. It's nowhere near as stringent as what the military requires, but there is a weight requirement based on height.

    Good to know, thanks again. I'm 6'1" and 218. Do you know if I would pass or fail at that weight for that height?
    I'm not slim but def not a fatty either. I'm able to handle a good deal of pt thanks to my time in the military. I worked with some animals for about 5 years, and keeping up with them has paid off.

    had to do some digging but I found a post from bam in the 6019 thread about the height/weight requirements. I'm not sure how strict they are, like if this says 205 and you're 206 do they tell you to come back or not.

    You're fine. I'm 5'9" and I believe my max was something like 210.

    Listen, before you worry yourself to death......use your head, they do. Work out, eat right and prepare, but remember that there is a little wiggle room in the numbers and you'll be sized up on an individual basis. If your heart rate is a little high and you look like 10lbs of s*#t in a 5lb bag they're not going to let you by. If you're a little on the high side, but you look halfway decent and have good color while on the stairs you'll be fine, despite your heart rate.

    Just excersize and don't focus TOO much on the numbers, a little, but not too much.

    Thanks. I never would have thought there would be any place for wiggle room in this process. My only frame of reference is the military and they are real strict on the numbers. It's good
    To know they will evaluate the whole person.

    It's called BMI guys (body mass index). In all reality it's kind if a joke, but does set a standard. But there is other tests that they have to do if you fail the BMI. They must measure certain areas of your body to get an accurate reading on what your actual body fat percentage is. They have to do this because people vary big time on these numbers. There are three different types of body types: ectomorph, endomorph, and mesomorph. You can be a combination of these too. An example of why the have to measure you after a failed BMI test would be your typical bodybuilder. Them guys are big in weight, but it's lean muscle mass. Most carry around 8% body fat at any given time and 2-3% come show time, these guys will NEVER pass a BMI test. Basically to pass the secondary test you need a larger neck measurement in conjunction to a small waist measurement. If anybody else has questions pertaining to this google BMI and you'll find all you need to know! But it's nothing to be worried about in my opinion. If you fail both tests, well you have A LOT of work to do. Good luck!
