    If you already have a CPAT Card do you have to take the CPAT again? PreMedic, do you work for Prince william?

    I don't want to give you misinformation, so it would be best to contact the Personnel Office and see what they say.

    How nervous is everybody right now? Decisions could be made any day now! Good luck to everyone in the current process, and to everyone testing in January!

    How many are they hiring now and how long was the process for you guys? Seems like they hire every year. Is it due to retirements, are people leaving, or are they growing?

    I was told they need to hire at least 12 but want 30. This is my 2nd process with them so it's been a year. When the 2nd process started all my scores carried over from the 1st time. It seems like they hire 2 times a year. not sure why

    PWC is one of the fastest growing areas in the nation, so the fire department has to keep up with the growth as well.

    I wouldn't think so. I'm only a NJ EMT and I completed the process. But I wouldn't be surprised if the national gave you a bonus.

    On the recruitment page, it states that if you have your Virginia or National P cert, then you are given preference. You do not need any certs to move forward in the process, but your national or Virginia cert will definitely help! Good luck!

    Hey everybody. Talk about nervous. I'm an nremt-p from Michigan. I spoke with tech hopper yesterday and its my understanding that everything has been submitted to the chief and they're awaiting his move. Hope this puts some people at ease... Personally, it makes me more nervous. Hope to see you all in January!
