    The July 9th academy is being filled from the old list. The new list, or currently being made list will be active for two years. If DFD does " Back to back" academys the first possible academy might be early in 2013. And of course this depends on budgets and needs.

    I'm just going to assume it's not going to be until next year at this point. I don't put too much stock in rumors, but I keep hearing similar word. Of course if it was sooner, that would be a pleasant surprise, but I'm not banking on it.

    Same here. Hopefully we can still finish this process soon and get certified. That would be nice.

    While you wait the ever-long wait there are some video's on youtube of some previous academies. Search for Denver Fire Department channel or Firewerx films. Might give you a good idea of what to prepare for/look forward to in your academy. Good luck!

    (I'm not affiliated with either of them btw)
    Nothing is as unimpressive as someone who is unwilling to learn.

    I passed w/o problem. I did notice the altitude, though. I was trying to take my time to make sure I didn't do anything dumb, but I did take longer than I expected @ 9:20something.

    There were 3-4 female applicants in the group that didn't fare so well. Felt bad to see them struggle so much. The CPAT is far from the most difficult physical test out there, but they were clearly unprepared for it. That is what the CPAT is designed for I suppose.

    Any thoughts on what the current number of applicants is? With cpat losses and background losses?

    I was wondering the same thing. Hard to say. After backgrounds and a few CPAT failures, I could see the number being down a good bit.

    According to http://www.denvergov.org/Portals/678...al-Booklet.pdf. Orals gonna have 3 tiers: recommended, strongly recommended and not recommended.

    Oh yea I remember reading that. So what is the difference between recommended and strongly recommended? Can that move you up or down on the list?
