Here’s a great resource to get started on the first step towards becoming a fire fighter for municipalities like the City of Abbotsford.
CPAT Weights and Clothing
To ensure scoring accuracy by eliminating timer failure, two stopwatches are used to time the CPAT. One stopwatch is designated as the official test time stopwatch; the second is the backup stopwatch. If mechanical failure occurs, the time on the backup stopwatch is used. The stopwatches are set to a pass/fail time and count down from 10 minutes and 20 seconds. If time elapses prior to the completion of the test, the candidate is deemed to have failed the test.
Medical Clearance Request
- CPAT session is $230.00 CND plus applicable taxes.
- Walk-through Orientation is $40.00 CND plus applicable taxes.
CPAT Refund and Cancellation Policy
- Once payment is received and testing is booked, payment is non-refundable.
- Partial payment will be refunded for medical reasons only. Requests for refunds must be received at least 72 hrs prior to the scheduled test date. Requests for refunds must be in writing and accompanied by a medical doctor’s written verification that you are unable to test due to injury/illness. A $50.00 administration fee will be deducted from the refund. Refund requests should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Approved refunds will be issued via cheque and mailed to your account address. No refunds will be given to individuals who take the CPAT but are unsuccessful.
- The City of Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service reserves the right to change or cancel scheduled dates. Notification will be sent via email to the address used during the registration process. Registrants will be placed into the next available date, with the option to reschedule.
- The information on the registration form is collected for internal purposes only and will remain confidential.
Preparing for the CPAT
CPAT Walk-through Orientation Only (THIS IS NOT A CPAT TEST)
It is RECOMMENDED that if you are requiring CPAT for any hiring occurring within the next 3 months, book one of the soonest dates available as it is first come first serve and there is no guarantee that CPAT dates will be available at the time of your hiring.
NOTE: Mobile (iPhone etc.) and Mac Computer (Safari browser) equipment might not be compatible with this website, when booking and making payment for the test, use standard computer.
