    Congrats man, and yea there were quite a few failing when I was there. And go figure man, some people just don't want it. But the sad thing is, they'll come back and do it half way again and fail, then come back and pass with a 10:19 and get hired before us. Atleast thats how life seems to go. Lol...but hey we made it this far and we all passed first go round. I'm happy with that.

    Being from out of state, I submitted proof of a valid CPAT and did not have to take the VBFD CPAT. After you completed the CPAT, did they give any further information on when the next step will begin? Thank you in advance.

    When I did mine, they gave me a temporary card and said I'd get a real one in the mail but no indication of when the next step begins. I don't think they can say yet because they still have to finish running all the Cpat candidates through may...

    I took my CPAT last Friday I was scheduled at 10:15 but they let me go with the 9:45 group cause I arrived early. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was gonna be. I finished with a time of 9:11. Congrats to everyone who passed hope we all move on.

I suffered a torn rotator cuff in my left leg. Worst of all my pants fell off exposing my self to everyone. Hopefully my injury heals in time and my embarassment goes away as well. Do you guys have any advice for me. I really want to be in this next academy with you guys. My rehab is going well, dr said I am healing up very well and should make full recovery for the next test. For now I will be choking down on my chicken to keep my arm strength up. No I will "chow" and support you my brothers with all my strength.

    This is news......?

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    I was wondering the same, would like to use it up here as a valid CPAT for additional processing. My best guess is they're awaiting the conclussion of the CPAT process which I dont think is over until May 9th.

    I got an email too. They have reviewed my PHQ, Background Check, and document review and pending further review will be hearing via US Mail next week about my status in the process.

    Makes me kind of nervous that I haven't received an email. Maybe I didn't make the cut for next process although I have the last 2 times I've applied at beach. Ill just wait it out and see if anything comes in the mail. Thanks for the info fellas!

    Did you receive it in the mail or email? I'm confused as to why they would send a rejection over post.

    I am taking the CPT in 2 weeks. I havent had a chance to take it yet. Work did not permit during the first 2 sessions.

    If I did not get an email like you guys then I guess there is no need to show up for CPAT. Seems like a waste

    I would still take it because it may be they just haven't sent all the emails out. Yours could be pending on whether or not you pass the CPAT. If you don't do the CPAT you are def out of the process and will not move on.

    I just called VBFD HR and they told me that the email I received means that some of my documents are still under review.
