    Everything you guys are doing at Randall's island for the cpat prep is more challenging then the actual cpat. The machine that's measuring your force for the cpat took me roughly 6 hits for the buzzer to go off, meanwhile at cpat prep it would take anywhere between 20-30 swings to get the tire across (depended on the weather and how much air was actually in the tire).

    The way the firefighters show you have to do everything during the cpat prep are the techniques that will help save you time on the cpat. Do as they say, they will not lead you wrong.

    Believe me everyone, CPAT is easy.. Medical is easy being that you get to fail 3 times and still have a chance.. intake interview is nothing but handing papers in.. The whole process is easy, it's the waiting that's the hard part. Unless you're horrible out of shape, you'll be more then fine. Although I did see out of shape ppl pass everything as well

    Avtually like that they have cPat training before our packets. That way guys can start to see if it's for them and not waste time with the long packet application if it's not. Wish they'd come already tho lol

    the packet is not that big honestly . I filled mine out the day before my intake . And the entire process like mentioned before is not as bad as people make it out to be . It's pretty smooth . The wait sucks but other than that . Things are being blown out of proportion a bit much .
