About this event

Please take advantage of our FREE practice sessions for those preparing to take the Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT). For more information about the CPAT, CLICK HERE

Candidates can either take the test in a standardized format with a proctor as a timed event to recreate the actual exam or go through the course as an orientation session, during which they will receive hands-on instruction and coaching from the proctor.

Candidates must arrive at least 30 minutes before their appointment for sign-in and a warm-up time. If you are injured, unwell, or otherwise incapacitated, you should not participate. Any issues or concerns must be reported to the proctor before your orientation.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Our candidate's and employees' health and safety are always our first concern. We have implemented more safety measures and procedures in response to the COVID-19 epidemic.

CPAT equipment, restrooms, countertops, and tables will be sanitized throughout each event day utilizing disinfectant wipes and sprays. Hand sanitizers will be placed throughout the sites.

SELF-MONITORING: Candidates are tasked with keeping track of their health and disease symptoms. They should notify LAFD personnel if they are sick, have a fever, or have any COVID-19 symptoms before the scheduled event begins. Candidates with any indicators or signs of sickness must postpone their event before the planned occasion.

FORMS: Candidates must CLICK HERE to complete LAFD's Forms/Waivers before check-in. The event reminder email will also include a link to the digital waivers.

Preparation: We strongly recommend that candidates watch and become familiar with the CPAT Orientation Video (CLICK HERE) and the CPAT Preparation Guide (CLICK HERE). If candidates have questions after watching the video and reviewing the CPAT Preparation Guide, they will email FCTC@cpf.org.

CLOTHING: Candidates MUST wear a T-shirt or sweatshirt, long pants to the ankle (i.e., no shorts, no capris), footwear with no open heel or toe (i.e., no five-finger shoes, barefoot running shoes, individual toe shoes, flip flops, slip-ons, etc.), and no loose or restrictive jewelry.

MASKS: Candidates are required to bring a mask and are required to wear it upon arrival, and until told by a proctor, they may remove it.

CANDIDATE MOVEMENT: An LAFD staff member will instruct candidates on physical distancing requirements, where to stand, and when to proceed throughout the check-in, testing, and check-out. Signage and social distancing markers throughout the facility must be adhered to.

CHECK-IN: Safeguards are in place at the registration desk, and no physical contact will be needed. LAFD Staff will take each candidate's temperature and ask a few basic health questions. Suppose a candidate has a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, signs of respiratory illness, or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the previous 14 days. In that case, they will not be allowed to participate in the event and will be rescheduled.

OTHER PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE): In addition to a face mask, the applicant will be required to put on LAFD-issued vinyl gloves before being fitted with CPAT leather gloves during the course.

HAND WASHING: Frequent hand washing is the best method of maintaining safety. Candidates must wash their hands before check-in and when they are released from rehab before proceeding to check-out.
