    Hey everyone, I had a thread on here a while back about me going to the CPAT and what I should do. I just wanted to thank everyone that had some input on that thread. The next step is the stress test and background info. Anyone have some pointers or tips on what i should do to get ready for the stress test? Anything and everything would be greatly appreciated!

    Good luck brother... we just instituted that test with this last academy. It's a heartbreaker.

    And an EMT. We have a consolidated test site in Harrisonburg for our region. Not ready yet, though. Too fat, too out of shape. But I am going to work on it.....
