Quick question for everyone who has been through the hiring process in a civil service community. The other day 2 of the candidates in my community failed the PAT test. The department is going to let them take it again next week. Is this normal? There are others on the list that haven't been called as of yet. Thanks in advance.

YES,The PAT can be retaken if failed (for another $150) It is required, but not used as a DQ. Once the PD selected you to go through the hiring process they have already spent alot of $$$$$$$$$ on the individual. They will allow the retake due to the fact it's cheaper in the long run.

Is the Mass PAT like NH (Coopers Aerobics Standards)? Or is it a collection of stations like the FF PAT?

I know that’s what I was thinking. I didn’t fail, but I am next on the list. I found out today that the two people failed, and that would have been enough to put me in the class. Now I find out they are going to let them take it again. I’m just a little pissed. :evil:

Cole,

Don't stress. I was 13th on the list for 12 positions, and was similarly concerned about the person ahead of me, being allowed a re-take. Fortunatley or unfortunatley, depending on how you look on it, they failed the second one too, and I got on. More than likley, if they failed the first one, they're probably going to fail the second one too. Not much changes in the few weeks between the original test, and the re-take.
