The Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT) Orientation & Practice Session Guide is designed to assist your fire department with conducting CPAT orientations and practice sessions for candidates. The orientations will afford candidates the opportunity to view test events, talk with trainers, and physically examine each test component in a controlled setting. The practice sessions will allow candidates to complete a timed practice run of the test.
