Virginia Beach does not use the CPAT. They have there own physical exam that is administered. This is a link to the instructional video the Dept. produced that can help you:
Honestly? Running stairs, good technique on the sled and pure endurance is what one should focus on for the Physical exam. There is a possibility that they have gone to the CPAT since I took the exam, but the video shows the exact physical I took.
Probation? Varies by your station, the Officer that you are assigned to, and again, the area of the city you are assigned to. Most importantly, your probation depends most upon YOU. Your attitude and willingness to do the community work in the station with little to no prompting, staying busy till 10pm and being up before everyone else getting the station ready for turnover...will ensure a smooth probation no matter who your OIC and senior members are. NOT doing those things, whinning, referring to your last dept, or just general laziness and disregard of what the "job" entails....will ensure a rough probation.Co 11

Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?
'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.
