    That's good news, I was wondering when the CPAT certs would get sent. Friday commission meeting!

    Does anyone know when the next step is? I'm pretty low on the list and am trying to do some pre-planning for traveling out there.

    Top 50. It sounds like some people have been re-ranked. I haven't been

    How do you know if you've been "re-ranked"?

    I just thought I read on here some people got an email from Jeff saying they got a new rank number.

    Somebody claimed that, but I spoke with Jeff Wilson and he said their was no way to tell anyone's rank at this point.

    Shouldn't we know something this week? I would think the re-rank (if it happens at all) would happen once the entire process is complete.

    That's my guess... who knows, though, with how drawn out the process has been. Any idea if they are actually conducting interviews? The background process was so thorough I feel like they know everything about me already... HAHAHA!

    Anyone care to share their ranking after the test? I was 58th, but who knows now after all is said and done.

    Hopefully something the beginning of this week since the commission meeting to approve backgrounds was on Friday. You can check your status on the website to see if your background packet passed the commission.

    Raptorman: Yeah, I'd really like to know if they are doing interviews too. Pretty tight schedule to start an academy in mid September with all that's left.

    My status just says "Background Report Received." Hope we hear back this week. My number is higher than yours Raptorman at 113. I know I won't be considered for the September date, but I fear I may be too for the three academies next year as well.

    There are interviews, not really scored though. You get a "score" of recommend, highly recommend, and not recommended. The interviews are with a bunch of fire dudes I think, mostly lt's and chiefs. I don't know what they do with that though. Maybe they skip over recommends for the first class and only take highly recommends. The whole process is outlined in a pdf on the civil service commission website and actually has a wealth of information. I'm hoping if an investigator didn't get in touch with you during the process to ask you about something that came up that it kind of indicates you're good. But that's just a guess. I'm hoping the website gets updated Monday

    Also, the guy that was in charge of the CPAT said in his speech when I did mine that 30 people had already been eliminated. This was on the day of the second practice session. Sucky for them but good for us I guess.

    My investigator said she called everyone at the end of her investigation to touch base with them before she wrote her report. d1verdown, 113 is not bad, especially since people have definitely been eliminated along the way. Who knows... I'm not holding my breath because I could get eliminated for anything just like anyone else. Cheers!

    They may or may not do interviews. They had 2 academies off of the last list and they did interviews for the first one but not for the second. It really depends on the time frame and what they want to do. My guess is there will not be interviews this round due to the tight turn around time. However they could prove me wrong and fit it all in. Time will tell.

    On a side note has anyone heard if they had the civil service meeting on Friday? They still have not posted the agenda for the meeting or the previous meetings minutes.

    A buddy did contact Mr. Wilson, and confirmed that they review 7/18 and 07/25. They hope to have updated app status online by Friday afternoon.

    Thanks for the update. That sounds like it may be pretty close. I emailed Mr. Wilson today and was told that my background package would be voted on Thursday and updated by that afternoon. I can't wait to get this process rolling again!!

    I suspect after Friday we will be re-ranked. I haven't gotten a revised rank communicated to me thus far while it seems like some have. After everybody in the lowest groups is done being looked over this week it seems inevitable.

    You're about 20 spots below me. Mine still says background report received. I guess it'd get updated with rejected if they had reviewed my file by now Hopefully soon.

    Haha probably. I assume most bad eggs show themselves to be so pretty early in the process.
