So heres the memo.. I have 2 weeks and 2 days to prepare for cpat test to become a firefighter. The major thing about the cpat is the stairclimber. You have to walk up stairs for 3 minutes and 20 seconds with 75 pounds of weight on you. I put 75 pounds in my back pack and went the levee and walked. Does anyone know what I can do? I'll do anything for some confidence.
