    Your guess is as good as mine... But there's 16 slots and 8 people per slot so that's 128 on the final and sign up is full. 128... Excuse me 127 isn't bad competition for CPAT, unless there is 500 other people signed up somewhere else

    There are also by my count 384 slots for the two practice runs. A certain percentage of those will pass but as to what that percentage is, I couldn't venture to guess. But at worst there are 512 slots for people to have an opportunity to pass the test. Obviously those that actually pass will be less.

    EDIT: Plus those that already have passed it from other jurisdictions.

    I took the CPAT in another place last year. The test was administered in two groups. I was in group 1 and passed, but now its expired. Had I taken it in group 2, it would still be good. The kind of luck I have.

    True, but there should be enough "CPAT finals" to accommodate everyone taking the practice sessions. Not to mention the people that already have ther CPAT cert

    This test is specifically for Class 28. We will be testing again sometime in 2014 for Class 29. Supposedly 28 will be 20 some people and 29 may be around 30 people. Of course all that is subject to change and in the fire service who knows what rumor or truth but that was the word told to us FFs in the field to pass along to interested candidates.

    Same here... I did one mentorship and the practice test. People were passing CPAT left and right while I was there. My interview is scheduled for next Monday. I was talking to one of the guys doing the CPAT mentorship And he said over 400 made it to CPAT.
