    Passed the CPAT practice yesterday, but I'm still going to keep working on the stairmaster section at the gym. My legs were like Jello when I got off. I didn't fall, but I had to focus on my steps as I ran with the hose. Passed with 1 min 23 secs left, but I'm shooting for 1:45 at a minimum. Good luck to everyone.

    How did you go about setting up a practice CPAT run? I have been to a couple of the weekend meetings but never had the opportunity to get on the stairmaster. Seeing as how I'm most concerned about that in particular I would like to give it a go.

    This past Saturday they did a practice CPAT for all those who had last names A - L. This Saturday will be M - Z, and then the next Sat. after that will be a makeup day/second practice for those who want it. You don't have to sign up for it ahead of time, just show up the day of and get your name on the list.

    I'm planning on coming up to Dallas Saturday for a wedding...gonna try to make the practice exam walk through. I had a question, does anyone know if you are disqualified at some point will you be notified by email or do you just have to keep going through the steps until they say you can't?

    @TheHuld86

    Everyone that turns in a packet on time and takes the accuplacer will be scheduled for a CPAT. After that a panel will review all the packets and select a certain amount of people to move to ploly/interview. I dont know exactly how many will go past CPAT.

    But from what I have heard, after the CPAT, if you stop getting phone calls and everyone else on this forum is, your prob out of the process.

    I cannot get a hold of Ron no matter what. I left three voicemails at two different phone numbers and still not a call back for a scheduled Accuplacer test.

    Yeah, I did that too. They gave me a phone number to leave a voicemail on to leave my name and number to setup a test date.

    This Saturday @ 8:30 AM at the fire training center on Dolphin Rd in Dallas. The practice is for last names M - Z, and others can just do the workout they have. May 5th is another practice day for anyone that wants it.

    It wasn't bad. A lot of fractions in mine. So brush up on the basic stuff we have forgotten over the years.

    There is no failing. The best you can get is 120/120.

    Are you from out of state, is that why you were able to schedule your poly? They only let me schedule the CPAT.
