    Default CPAT Info

    Can the CPAT be used to bring volunteer firefighters on to a department?

    I wouldn't see a problem with doing that. In fact I think it's a good idea. The system I work in has a combination career / volunteer staff. Mostly career. The career folks have to pass the CPAT, volunteers are not required to take it. So I think it would be a good idea. You would logically get some negative feedback from the volunteers I'm sure.

    CPAT:
    C - Canidate
    P - Physical
    A - Agility or Aptitude
    T - Test

    Most of the career departments around the country use this to test the physical ability of potential recruits. It replaced the old physical agility tests with a nationwide structured one.
