    [QUOTE=Manhattan Medic;1362103]Stop. Just stop. This is a battle you can not win [QUOTE]

    Medic, the only battle im fighting is for a clear and informative forum without any ridiculous nonsense. If we can achieve that goal, then i won. If we cannot, then u are right, i cannot win.

    As for your boy "Teufelhunden", the guys a d*ck and simply comes on here looking for opportunities to flex and show off. He completely misses the point of just about everyone he has argued with. Always Looking for an opportunity to play "Big Balls". To prove my point, simply check page #446 and take a look at his unprovoked attack on "FFwnt2b". U will see how he jumped all over the guy without even reading what the guy said correctly. He had to apologize to the damn guy; made himself look really stupid. And hes done that with quite a few people on this thread. That tells you that the problem is HIM and that hes full of tension and is only here to stir up trouble. Hes always basically like: "Shut up. Im a Firefighter and youre not! Ha Ha ha!!!". Childish stupidity that i do not see from you and the other guys otj. And THAT i have a problem with becuz noome on here needs that. He is not the type of person im willing to become. Good day Medic, and good luck to you as well.

    Correct, it is the exact same thing. I found it strange that a lot of the questions where based on sexuality.

Remember if you fall off you are automatically dq'd so if you think you're about to fall grab that railing. Also what I've done since i have big feet i always made sure that I had the toe of my foot pressed hard against the back of the stair. Because my foot already hang off quite a bit. I guess if y'all have anymore questions about it i've taken the CPAT 3 times now.
    I found it easier to keep my balances when I look down at my feet while on the stair master.

    Some day you might end up in the academy. You will have an old salty lieutenant as an instructor in one of your classes. He's going to bust your balls every time you have that class, for everything you do, even when you do it well. It's going to drive you nuts, but hopefully there will be at least 1 or 2 functioning neurons in your cranium and you'll just stay quiet, take the criticism, and say "yessir, it won't happen again." I imagine there will be a similar character in the firehouse.

    Think of teufelhunden as that guy. Doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with him, because of his place in the social hierarchy his opinion carries more weight, and it's best if you just accept that and stop picking fights.

    I agree that the priority hire discussion is detraction from the point of this thread, but I solve that by pretty much skipping over all of it, since I don't have the time or patience to pay attention to it.

    We have to realize that we all come here for helpful info. I don't get angry if someone jumps on me, I listen, and if it requires a response , I do it in respectful manner. If it doesnt, i dont respond at all. Trying to emulate what it would be like in the firehouse. LOL
    All candidates from OC list, to the PH's may think that they deserve to be in the firehouse. I always felt in order to be received by those on the job, you must first respect those that have been through it. Spiderneck30, I know you are here to get info, ignore the members that frustrate you. You need to concentrate on what you need to do to get on the job. Don't worry about the other stuff.....
    Now, back on topic.......
    When doing your CPAT, the monitor will not answer your questions on whether you can go to the next station, he said just freakin go! He said don't waste your time on little stuff like if you do the sledge hammer entry, and when you are done, you stand the sledge up and it falls over. Don't think you should pick it up, just leave it and go. Also when you are raising the ladder by the rungs, once you stand it straight up, just give it a little shove to get it to the wall, don't try to soften the blow and hold it till it gently touches. I was guilty of this, I thought you had to gently place it.....

    Worrying about time will only make the obstacle harder and it will make your duration on the machine feel like an eternity. I pretty much but my mind somewhere else and come back periodically to be aware of my surroundings.

    3 miles in 22 minutes. Call my number already damn it.

    I am getting tired of having to sift through all this damn nonsense. How hard is it to just ignore whoever and don't respond. Like medic said that is normal in everyday fire life so start practicing now. Keep your opinions to yourself no matter your belief on whose right and whose wrong and only post useful info.

    Next time I run for fun will probably be a 5k after the academy ends, and I'm shooting for that time as well. I'd love to do a 5k in less than 20 but I doubt I can improve my pace that much in the next 2 months.

    by any chance do you have a ballpark idea of what the running pace is like at the academy?

    The pace is set by the instructor leading the run and honestly I don't know. Be able to run a couple miles in under 8/mile, and be able to run 5+ miles in under 830/mile and you'll be fine on the runs.

    I have run long long distances before but that was years ago, I used to focus on distance and zone out.
    In your opinion what is respectable distance to run each week and what should the time be? I know this has been aswered somewhere back further but curious since you are more experienced now.

    A buddy of mine I was talking to who was in this class said to him the pace was a decent jog if that helps.

    It depends on who's leading the run. If you can do 6 miles in 50 minutes you'll be fine, or 4 in 35 min.


    Guys is know that the CPAT is the first thing on the topic list, but keep in mind that the academy is around the corner and the PT, drills and evolutions at The Rock are MUCH harder than the CPAT. If you can do the CPAT in your sleep, you'll be fine. If the CPAT is difficult, you are in trouble...

    I think the word you mean is actually "sexism".

    A psychological test (or "psych" not "phys") cannot really be narrowed down to give a concise overview. But some of the main things it looks for are your consistency or trends on several ideas/ideals (i.e.): gets along well with others, works as a team, is (not) a loner, artistic vs meticulous, preconceived ideals regarding sexism (do you think only certain sexes can do only certain jobs, etc), all mixed in with little qualifier questions; stealing, lying, cheating, etc.

    The questions and answers were developed and identify trends to determine if you're trying to deceive the test itself. Answer as you will. Don't try to guess what the answer is they're looking for. That's when red flags come up and you either a) fail or b) get to talk to the actual psychologist.

    A lot of people with a lot of abbreviations after their names have developed these tests throughout the years. You can't outthink them.

    Answer truthfully and to the best of your ability.

    I know some guys are worried about work schedules and getting off, didn't get any specific dates but the instructor who walked us around the CPAT course in LIC told us they only test Tues-Thurs, and Saturdays for the CPAT.
