The Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT) – Full Session includes orientation, two (2) timed course practices, and a CPAT test.

Orientation will begin at 9:00 am. Please plan to arrive by 8:45 am. During the orientation session, we will explain the testing process and how the equipment works. You will have the chance to ask questions and try the testing equipment. The pass rate of those who attend the orientations is higher than for those who do not, so it is highly recommended that you attend at least one of these orientations.

The two practice tests are the same and we attempt to run the practice test under actual testing conditions. If the test is run under actual testing conditions and you successfully complete the test this is considered a PASS and you will not need to attend any further testing.
