CPAT (Candidate Physical Agility Test)

The Treasure Valley Fire Cooperative will be holding an Invitation Only CPAT to those applicants that meet the minimum, Cooperative set, written testing score.  All individuals who have taken a written test through NTN, or who plan on testing, are invited to partake in the CPAT orientation and practice sessions.  Orientation and practice sessions are voluntary, and you do not have to attend them in order to be invited to the CPAT.

Participation in the Orienation and or Practice sessions does not guarantee you will be invited to partake in the CPAT.  CPAT invitation will be based on a minimum written testing score that is set at a later date by The Cooperative.

If you are interested in attending an Orientation or Practice session, please email Christie Boucher, [email protected] to secure your spot.
