    If you are looking for a personal trainer in the DC area that is specifically geared towards CPAT testing take a look at www.wildfireadventures.com. I ran the recruit training, CPAT testing and several other programs for Washington DCFD. DCFD does not currently have classes in session nor are we testing. I’ve tested several hundred applicants and know what is needed to pass the test. If you’re looking to get in shape or have a specific goal in mind such as CPAT take a look at the site. Training is done in College Park.

    I stuck around and took it at one of the practice sessions, it was a joke.

    They didn't give times...It was a pretty basic test though, tests general fitness level...Not much depth to look into, very passable...

    Went the night of the practice, and took my physical then. Gotta say, from what I saw at practice, I think more people should have put in a bit more time at the gym. The test itself is definitely doable, you just want to make sure you do it as fast and safe as possible. Hopefully my time was fast enough to get an interview.

    I have heard they will not be interviewing everyone that passed the physical. Over 3000 people took the written. They will begin interviewing sometime in September.

    Does anyone have any idea or can anyone make an educated guess as to when the first class will pick up?

    I passed my physical test yesterday. I asked about when the first class is expected to start and the lady told me some time around Dec./Jan.

    I saw quite a few people fail the test.

    That's excellent...Good for you! Will everyone who passed the written & physical receive an interview? How are they determining it? Thanks...

    Thanks. Being called doesn't mean i'll get hired, but it sure gives me a shot. Wish I had an answer for you, but I know as little as you do. I would imagine they won't interview EVERYONE that passed. I know they said during the physicals that the usually look for the people with the best times. As far as the written, all i know is I passed. I'm not sure how they grade it, or how everything stacks up at the end.

    Ouch. Haven't heard anything. Here's to hoping something tomorrow or the next day. Hey col, how do you feel you did on the physical. I know they don't tell you times but do you feel like you sprinted through it or what?
