    Nope. I was really hoping to hear something before the app deadline just in case it was because there was a problem. Like you said, hopefully next week.

    It appears very few people have received there test dates. They had over 1600 apply, and I'm sure the HR department is a bit overwhelmed. I think we all just need to be patient. I bet this process will be long and very fluid. As soon as I get mine I will let you all know.

    Per Dffa Union, final number of applicants, 2,431.

    Rumor has it a lot of people didn't show up on their test days so far. If everyone showed up and passed the test Odds of being hired would be 1 in every 27 people. Pretty awesome odds. Im thinking when all of the testing is done maybe 1:15 or so. 90 supposed to be hired right away and then another possible 50 according to the EM.

    Be mindful everyone that they are testing 2400 people in groups of 30-40. Be patient because this will a long process. My test was one of the first last week and only 30 of 40 people showed up to the test. I am told this has been the case at other tests as well. With an immediate 25% wash out rate the odds are looking better and better. Good luck everyone

    I actually received an email from Detroit's HR dept that scheduled my test. I did not get to choose my date.

    It was assigned. Like you, my online status changed to "schedule" sometime over the past 2 days, but there was never an option to self-schedule. I'm sure you'll be hearing something soon.

    This is unprecedented. I've never seen such good odds for any department, let alone for a major city that doesn't require any certifications to apply. Heck, even FD's that require medic don't hire at a 1:15 ratio.

    I recieved my examination date. For those of you who have already taken the test...what were you instructed to do after you completed the test? Any paperwork you need to turn in, or are they waiting to test everyone before accepting CPAT's, etc.

    We were told prior to taking the exam that the scores would be emailed to us. If we needed information on taking the CPAT through DFD, we could go down the hall to another room to inquire about CPAT info.. They did not collect any CPAT's as of yet.

    I'm an out of state applicant and my test is scheduled for November 19th. Any idea if we can do our cpat out of state? Or would I have to fly back to take it in Detroit?

    Default Cpat

    I just scheduled my CPAT with DFD for next Tuesday. If you were put on the waiting list, they should call you soon...

    Did they let you sign up for the CPAT without your written results? Because I have not gotten mine yet.

    I have not yet received my written results yet. A few weeks back I was put on a waiting list to take the CPAT through Detroit and I got a call on Tuesday with a date and time to show up..
