    Took my CPAT on June 1st and just got my call on Wed the 18th for my poly. This last 7 weeks has felt like forever, but I'm glad it's picking back up again.

    Are you paramedic cert?????

    Not really sure if they show preference to medics but it does help. If you are fire and medic certified you are pushe thru a fast track course that is wayyyy shorter than coming in with nothing.

    I'm from out of town and I called last week. They returned my call this week and said they are trying to get the remaining out of towners poly and interview at the same time. She reassured me I was still in the process and they are just scheduling it that way.

    I'm assuming that if we don't get a call for an interview,than that is their way of saying your out of the process?

    Took my CPAT on June 1st and took my poly on July 25th, and passed both. Now, I'm waiting for my call to schedule my interview. Has anyone received a phone call for their interview?
