Now I just heard a nasty rumor that the PAT is now $150.00? :doctor:
Can anybody confirm this? If this is true, this is an absolute RIP!!!!!!! :shock:

It's a money maker... the whole friggen hiring process. They have scores of folks looking to get into LE in this Commonwealth and looks like now they are going to start cashing in on it. I would bet the testing fees (although just increased) will rise again in the near future.

$150 bucks for a bunch of ol timers tell you how to run the PAT is just plain stupid. There is not much that it entails to justify such a fee increase :hump: (getting screwed minus the smiling faces).

All kinds of fees are going up. To do the steps for EMT is around $200 now as opposed to under $100. FT Academy tuition used to be $1,700 but is now $2,300.

K9,
You're right. If I have to suck it up and pay an extra $100, I'll bite the bullet, but it was like a kick in the crotch when I saw the price. I could see maybe $100 at the most but a buck fifty? Where I come from that's a Jersey shake down minus the KY!! :doctor:

Unless you're a 300 pound couch potato, I wouldn't worry about passing the PAT.

I think it's designed for the calorically challenged. They should bring back the sit-ups/push-ups/running entrance exam.
