    I took my P/A test for our department at age 40. Sounds like the same type of test. Good luck and dont worry.

    This is is good to hear, this test also sounds much like the one I will be facing in coming months.

    @ age 43, I joined our VFD in January this year and have completed the first of 3 courses for FF1. I am going thru our local technical school to become state/npq qualified & apply for our cities paid department.

    I'm glad to see someone my age that says they didn't have a problem with the PAT.

    Yea, this was a mid life crises. Changed careers from LE to FD. Go figure. I am a lot happier now. Should have made the move years ago.
