These training sessions are geared specifically toward completing the tasks required to pass the Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT), the physical test required to get hired (or even test) with a fire service agency.


It will be intensive and focused and WELL worth it! You will feel extremely prepared for a test that is pass/fail.

This is a very physically demanding part of testing to become a firefighter.  It requires great strength and endurance.  Working together, we can get you to where it's a walk in the park!
