    Is/was there a dead line when candidates need to take the accuplacer exam by? Anyone else having difficulty getting in contact with Ron Johnson? Thanks in advance.

    Not sure if there is a deadline or not, I would call the recruiting office. Remember they said to document how many times you have tried to reach Ron and no reply.

    Exchanged emails w/ Ron but communication w/ him has been non existent w/ him. I called the recruiting office and the individual I spoke w/ said that there was a "deadline". I emailed Capt. Florence to get a confirmation w/ him. I'll try calling again tomorrow. Anyone else having a hard time getting in contact w/ Ron to schedule the accuplacer exam? Thanks, much appreciated everyone!

    I'm having an extremely hard time trying to contact him. I called recruiting again and they gave me a number to call his supervisor as well. Left his supervisor a voicemail, but still no reply! What's up with this college!?

    What does the CPAT consist of and is there a time limit? Thanks for the help, I am taking the CPAT the 15 and I wasn't able to make in practice runs because I live in Houston and am currently going through the fire academy.

    And does anyone know if I can schedule my Poly for the same day or after, or do you have to live out of state?

    did you tell them when you picked your CPAT time? Id call them back and explain your from houston.

    There is a time limit for CPAT, but i cant remember it, i think its around 10mins.


    Does anyone know the starting pay for a recruit if you r already fire and medic certified? and how much is the insurance for a family?

    Call the recruiting office and explain your dilemma. The CPAT consists of eight events with a time limit of 10 mins 20 secs. There are videos on YouTube.

    Does anybody know the timeline DFR is shooting for? When would the first academy start? I ask because this process is moving much faster than I had expected. Thanks.

    I talked to him through email yesterday dctalk. I finally was able to get my accuplacer taken (I'm coming from outside of Dallas) and everything sent off. CPAT scheduled, looks like it's gonna be another month before any sort of progress as everyone is taking their CPATs

    I heard they are hiring 85 this year. However last year I was told they said they would hire 150 and ended up hiring 200. Has anyone heard differently than 85?

    I took the CPAT and passed last Thursday and I believe only one or two people did not pass. If you already went on a different day can you share the outcome of your test day?

    Approximately how many people tested on the day you did? I am scheduled to take mine on the 1st. I saw a handful of people fail the practice run.
