Candidates must register before the testing day; when the candidate arrives on the day scheduled, you must complete the proper paperwork and forms. In addition, candidates must have a valid photo ID. Candidates will then be given an overview of the written exam process.
Candidates taking the written exam will be assembled in a holding room before testing. Once testing begins, you will move into a quiet testing room monitored by two “Exam Proctors”. Candidates will be given 2 hours to complete a 100 question written exam, referenced from the Jones & Bartlett Fundamentals Fire Fighter Skills, 4th edition. Textbook available here: https://www.psglearning.com/catalog/productdetails/9781284144673
Upon completion or the end of the time limit, the candidates will hand in the exam and answer sheet to the Exam Proctor. The Exam proctors will not leave the testing room until all candidates have submitted their tests. The Exam proctors will then deliver the written exams directly to the “Test Administrator”. The Test Administrator will then lock the tests and answer sheets in a secure location to be scored later that day.
**NOTE: You must apply to all interested departments before testing day. .**
- Register online for the CPAT test
- Contact departments to complete the application process before test day
- Show up for the test at the allotted time slot
- Each department will contact you for a continuation of the hiring process. However, only the department with a completed application packet, a written score, and a successful CPAT will continue the process.
YOU must complete a separate application for all departments you are interested in. 1 application is not suitable for all 5 departments.
Testing will begin at 7 AM and candidates will be tested in blocks. Candidates will be notified 1 week before the exam of their specific test time. Any Candidate who shows up on the day of the exam may have the ability to be tested in the last group if availably can be accommodated. NO exceptions. We will try and remain flexible or grouping, but we cannot guarantee a candidate a group preference time.
