    A class started this month with 41 new hires. They are adding a company or two.

    Unknown how many will be hired off this new application period.

    Apply any way! You may end up getting a job.

    I was hoping to book my flight tonight...

    Can anyone confirm the written test date?

    On their website they state February 12th and on the application it stated March 22nd.

    It's the 12th. Did you apply last year because I believe that was the date for last years? When I applied all my stuff had last years dates so I call HR and they said just continue and apply it will apply for the current process. All the dates for everything are under the hiring process part on the vbgov.com website. Hope that help's.

    the written test is CWH firefighter test just review study guide and I like to brush up on the basics such as math grammar etc. As in any process be ready for the CPAT. But as for me personally last time through I got tripped up in the oral board. I just wasn't as prepared as I should have been. 100% my fault. I've taken numerous oral boards before but I just wasn't on my game this time around and I'm sure that had a large impact on me not making it past that portion of the process...

    ... that and I'm a white male from PA trying to get hired as a firefighter ;D
    just kidding on that last part of course

    My guess would be around 1,000 applicants, but who knows. Let us know if you find out.

    I was in the 1230 testing session they said 1300 applications were submitted. Less than the front half was filled up from my session.

    I tested at the 8am and if I counted right they had seats for about 475. With less than half showing up, I would say about 1000 applied and about 400 or less tested. Like the other person said we had 202. I'm from Missouri so I am sure glad I can take the CPAT by my house. How does everyone feel they did I myself think is wasn't too bad but we will see next week.
