CPAT Test Dates
When to Take the CPAT?
CPAT test dates refer to the dates made available by the CPAT examination authorities, for firefighting aspirants, to take the CPAT, for obtaining admission in different firefighting academies of the USA and Canada. Each candidate has to provide information about his/her choice of a testing date, from the available CPAT test dates, at the time of registration for this examination, or during any other time, as instructed by the CPAT test administration authorities. One can refer to the official CPAT schedule webpage (http://www.cffjac.org/go/jac/cpat/schedules/) for current information on the CPAT test dates at CPAT test locations.
Once a CPAT test date is finalized, one can only change it by paying a rescheduling fee to the CPAT authorities. The fee paid for the initial scheduled CPAT test date cannot be refunded. Examination rescheduling requests can be sent about a couple of days before the original date of this examination. This is because examination date alternation requests that are sent after this deadline are not entertained by the CPAT rescheduling authorities. For more information on rescheduling CPAT events, please refer to http://www.cffjac.org/go/jac/cpat/. If a CPAT test center wants to cancel a CPAT test date, with or without prior intimation, it will make the CPAT candidates aware of the probability of such changes beforehand. Hence, after registration, one should always keep in touch with the official CPAT authorities or the CPAT test center authorities, for information updates on the CPAT test dates.
If one is not satisfied with the quantity or quality of information provided on the CPAT website regarding the CPAT test dates, one can contact the CPAT authorities, through the official CPAT contact webpage (http://www.cffjac.org/go/jac/cpat/contact-us/).

The Best Time to Take the CPAT
Before registering for this examination, a thought that commonly comes into every CPAT candidate's mind, is about the best date for taking this examination. However, one should remember the following points before finalizing on one's CPAT test date:
A CPAT candidate's most favorable CPAT test date is individualistic- There are no standardized CPAT test dates that can be considered as the best for appearing for this examination, as the most favorable time for appearing for this examination will vary from person to person, depending upon the level of preparedness of that person for this examination.
A candidate should set the CPAT test date when thoroughly prepared for this test- The test date should include the time that one will take to prepare for the CPAT activities perfectly. Ideally, one is supposed to be ready for appearing for CPAT after completing the official orientation and practice sessions, which are arranged by the CPAT administration authorities. However, depending upon the physical abilities of the candidate, he/she may take a longer time to adapt oneself to the CPAT examination stress and perform efficiently in it. Hence, candidates should finalize their CPAT test dates only when they are confident of their physical abilities to perform in the CPAT well.
The CPAT test date should be fixed on a day on which the candidate has no other assignment- The CPAT requires great physical stamina and a candidate should take this test when he/she is feeling totally energetic and relaxed. A candidate should never appear for this test when the candidate is fatigued and stressed out mentally. Hence, candidates should get their CPAT test dates scheduled on a day on which he/she has no other assignment to tire him/her out. However, after taking this test, the candidate can perform other activities, as necessary.
The CPAT test dates should be set in pleasant seasons- Since the CPAT candidates get exhausted physically, it is better to schedule this examination on days that are not too hot or too cold. The candidate should assess the weather that best suits him/her for heavy exercising, beforehand, and opt for taking this test during the season which is conducive for this purpose.
CPAT test dates should be booked well in advance to prevent disappointment. If a candidate is not allotted a CPAT test date of his/her choice by the CPAT testing authorities due to some reason, he/she should inform these authorities to keep his/her requirement in mind and allot him/her the testing date of his/her choice for this examination, as soon as it is possible. Hence, when a vacancy arises on the desired CPAT test dates, there is a possibility of the CPAT testing authorities considering the candidate's request and allotting him/her the test date of his/her choice.
