    If anyone wants help passing their upcoming CPAT, we are offering a brand new program in Grand Prairie. Workouts are based on a shift schedule.

    If I can give any advice to you guys that are preparing for the CPAT, work on climbing a stair climber with a weight vest. That's the part that I saw most people dq on.

    Does anyone know the deadline on taking the Accuplacer? Also, can it be taken on the weekends?

    I second that. If you have never been on a stair climber and haven't been strength training your legs while working out, you may be in for a rude awakening. Also, make sure your cardio is at a level that allows you to sustain energy (and your breath) throughout the test. You will be exhausted by the time you're done, no debating that. I started to REALLY feel it during the dummy drag. It's close to the end so I was already tired. Not to mention, I don't really ever "pull" weight while back pedaling so my legs were on fire. Take advantage of the practice run and you'll do fine. Good luck!

    I'am guessing by April 29th since that is when CPAT Testing begins, but not sure

    You might make sure you're still in the process. Were there any inconsistancies between your background packet and polygraph packet?

    Just had my poly today, went good, and to that other guy who passed his cpat in early may, they don't always take everybody to the polygraph a couple of years ago I passed everything and never heard back after the cpat, know that isn't what you want to hear

    Default cpat

    Im still waiting for my cpat as well. I talked to them yesterday and they told me to be patient, that they are still scheduling test dates and my name is on the list to call soon. So hang in there. There are only 265 people left in the process and after the cpat it will be less. Great chance for everyone who makes the interview.
