    That shouldnt be a factor. Any how got a real good hint today from HR that CPAT is the way they are going. Wont go into detail but I really think its diehard. Also from another source i heard that they wont allow cards from last year, thats just rumor though.

    Heard through the rumor mill that cpat letters are going out this week. Anyone hear the same? Also I heard that the city signed a contract with the state to send 200+ through the test. Anybody hear anything else???

    I just called personell and they said we should recieve something within the next couple of weeks. I asked if it was going to be the CPAT and the guy said that he couldn't say, so I don't know if he was just clueless or if they are trying to keep it a secret. I have a contact that is supposed to get back to me soon with any info.

    Closing for CPAT apps is 2/21, with a scheduled test date of 4/28. I wonder if thats the date we should all be looking forward to. Can you imagine that the state is only going to run 4 tests all year round? Anyway, does anybody have any updated rumors? Gota keep this forum active.

    Scotts, having only 4 is highly unlikely... They'll add tests as needed to deal with the applications they receive. The initial 4 was just to get started. Price has also increased...

    I don't know what the deal is but I do know that I'm gettin in that first session no matter what. If Hartford doesn't go with the CPAT then oh well I'm well prepared for whatever they have and if they do then I'm good to go. Not to mention it's something to fall back on if I don't get on in HTFD.

    is it Hartford sending the letter or did he actually sign up for the CPAT himself? Are we going to have to pay?

    That explains why I got a second package then. I paid for the CPAT just to take it even if Hartford wasn't going with it and they sent me an orientation package last week, then I just got another one yesterday which means the second one must be for the city. Time for me to check on a refund!!!! Thanks for the info. No packet for you SCOTTS? At least not yet?

    I just got off the phone with Hartford Personell. Don't worry Scott yours is on the way. Everyone that passed the oral is getting a chance at the CPAT. No further action required once you pass, either the state will inform the City or the next step will be in a letter from the City.

    Im glad to see that Hartford is picking up the cost of the CPAT. If you dont get hired but at least pass the CPAT. You got a free CPAT card out of the whole deal.

    Cheers

    I asked them if the CPAT stuff was from them which they told me it was, I asked if everyone that passed the oral would get a CPAT packet and they told me yes everyone will. Finally I asked if we had to inform them when we passed and they said no, that either the state would inform them or just to wait for a letter from the City with info on the next step.

    Hang in there Scott I know a guy with a last name starting with J who just got his yesterday so maybe today or tomorrow for you.

    I saw the smoke header from Pratt's firehouse. Went out on a box alarm run and realized how damn cold it was.
