    A friend of mine let me know he got a post card from Cfd in the mail on Saturday telling him to reapply. He was never called but was waiting on the list. Anyone who started processing get one?

    I don't think it means no third class, I think it is a way of telling you to take the test just in case.

    That card likely went out to everyone that was on file and under the minimum age.

    Just found this thread so Im sharing what I know. Took my medical in early jan. and recieved a call to come pick up a request for another blood test by my doctor due to a high white blood cell count last thurs. The quickest I could get in was yesterday and results were faxed to the medical section today (results were normal). If anything this shows that wheels are turning over there. I too heard from an academy source that there will be a november class. Not sure what to expect next but I also recieved the post card as well on mon. Ive been holding out on paying for the new test just in case I dont need to take it but will if the deadline aproaches with no word from personnel. I also know somebody that was in my group and did his medical the day after I did mine and he hasnt heard anything. What a year this has been, so close to the only thing Ive ever really wanted to be. I hope it happens. Good luck to everyone and I hope to at least someone that this little info is usefull and keeps the hope up.

    Hello, I Was Just Wondering If Any One Heard Or Asked HR @ CFD, Who Is Done With There Processing If We Have To Take Are CPAT Test Again?? Because Mine Was Over June 2014 & I Heard Its Only Good For One Year, So If You Took It In 2013 When I Did Yours Is Over Too.. And It Looks Like We Might Have To Do It Over Again To Be Up To Date If We Go In This Year Nov. If Anyone Has A Answer Let Me Know Thanks...

    Hello Gentlemen.....

    been looking at this thread for a few months now after secondary processing someone told me about it so i wanted to say hello.....

    I cannot get over how long this process has taken and I thought I had more than enough time however my age limit is seriously coming close to make the 3 class if there is even one...

    When I heard the city wanted to convert the BLS ambos I was really excited to not have to do ambo duty however after it passed i realized that might pause hiring for the fire side since they need medics more, plus if they run a fire academy they will lose more medics due to the crossover, so my excitement for no ambulance duty was short lived when I figured out that I might not get the job at all because of it!

    But hopefully for me there is still a 3rd academy and they have it sooner rather than later! LOL

    Anyhow we will keep our fingers crossed!

    a current cpat was not required when we tested like it is now so i think we should be fine, however who knows with the city because i think it has been over a year for me too and I havent heard anything either

    My assumption is 9/15 is the start date for the next academy? I've deferred twice, this is my last shot, unfortunately I was in a motorcycle accident and can't make that date for the academy due to my injuries. Good luck to guys waiting, I guess I should have sacked up and took one of the last academies. Oh well…

    Take care guys, btw I was Truckman111 for those that have followed this thread as long as I did.

    That's terrible Dino. Having spent a lot of time recovering from my own, my heart goes out to you. I hope you can recover completely even you aren't able to join the CFD.

    well i guess i was wrong i received a post card in the mail today stating a current CPAT was required to be hired by the CFD. since they sent it i am guessing there is still a fall class and they are getting ready?!?!?

    there goes $165 for the CPAT!
