    FST is still timed but you don't have to pass it to pass the academy. But if your right on the edge with hands on and academics it's only going to hurt you. But say you breezing through academically and hands on wise you can still graduate if you can't pass FST, barring you have a high enough average in the other two fields. Haven't heard anything about the run now being based on age.

    They've filmed several PT sessions and word is they will be posting them on the website to help guys prepare for upcoming classes. Keep an eye out
    How would you recommend working out with this? What type of movements/exercises?

    The run is not based on age, that's just idiotic. Not saying you said, but that's dumb.

    Maybe they might do the physical fitness test requirements based on age and gender which is what suffolk pd does. The age ranges are 20-29, 30-39, 40-49 for men and women. They get tested on push ups, sit ups, and 1.5 mile run. Basically if you are a women the requirements are easier than men and the older the age range the easier it gets as well.

    When you sign up for the mentorship program, how long does it actually take for them to contact you, or at what point in the process can you expect to be contacted?

    Yeah, I'm just passing on what I heard. I wouldn't be surprised if they found a way to accommodate just her, she was having a hard time since day 1 of her first time through the academy.

    Yeah I'd like to actually get a little info on this as well. I have this Paycheck Calculator at my job that automatically has taxes deducted & when I plug the Salaries from the FDNY site into it I get these results.

    Fringe Pay Bi weekly after taxes:
    $43,074 = $1,219.41
    $49,470 = $1,369.22
    $53,881 = $1,472.53
    $59,629 = $1,607.18
    $65,331 = $1,740.74
    $99,104 = $2,522.11

    I'm sure there are other factors that will affect these totals like union dues & such, but I'm not exactly sure how that fringe pay is calculated.. I'm sure some people are working way more than the fringe & others less. Can anyone vouch for these numbers as being within a reasonable range of the actual pay?

    Give the job 10 years and it'll be a bunch of fat body hair bags. This is ridiculous. The female you're referring to is a complete bag of *****. She shouldn't be allowed in 100ft of the academy, that's how little she deserves to be there. And it has nothing to do with the fact that she's a female because 4 other females in our class could abide by the standards. It has to do with the fact that this job is NOT FOR HER! Just like not everyone can be an accountant or be a teacher some people are not meant to be firefighters, plain and simple.

    Do the work, one standard.

    Sorry but this isn't the military. As a firefighter there's no "easy position". EVERYONE goes to work and therefore EVERYONE needs to be prepared. Once standards change people will die.

    Has anyone else received the

    "Physical Preparation and Firefighter Candidate Mentorship Program Information Sessions for all those expected to be called to take the upcoming Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT)."

    Hey guys first post here. I got the email last week for the CPAT info class. How long after that class do you actually take the CPAT?

    Also, it's states that the program will start the week of sept 15. Does that mean that we won't be taking our CPAT until the end of next year? Just want to be clear. Thanks guys

    I had my first CPAT information season 1/11/14 and was scheduled for the first DCAS CPAT exam in med-march, so it was about 2 months after the first CPAT prep.

    I think they should make the standards harder.

    But if the rumors are true, I was giving an example of the physical standards based on age and gender that other agencys follow that FDNY could mimic.

    Awesome Danny thanks. If you don't mind answering, after the CPAT what is the next step/s, and how far apart is each step from one another?
