CPAT AND WRITTEN TESTING UPDATE:
On March 12, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, FCTC cancelled all CPAT events, FCTC Written Tests, and all associated practices, orientations, and preparatory courses, until further notice. FCTC continues to work with fire departments throughout the state regarding the suspension of testing and their recruitment deadlines. The health and safety of California firefighter candidates, fire department personnel, and FCTC staff is our top priority and cancelling these events was one of many precautionary measures taken.
Beginning May 26, 2020, FCTC began a series of CPAT Demonstration Events at our Sacramento, Livermore, and South El Monte sites. These events are being conducted through June 13, 2020 on an invitation-only basis with priority given to candidates who had events scheduled in 2020 that were cancelled. FCTC Orange remains closed until further notice and events previously scheduled there will be held at FCTC S. El Monte until further notice. FCTC San Diego will remain closed throughout the end of August with no target date to reopen.
Beginning June 5, 2020, FCTC will begin a series of Written Test Demonstration Events at our Sacramento and Livermore sites. These events will be held through June 20, 2020, and Southern California dates will be added during this timeframe when locations have been finalized. These events are also invitation-only, with priority given to candidates who had events scheduled that were cancelled.
Please check this website frequently for further updates.
FCTC APPRECIATES THE PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING OUR CANDIDATES AND DEPARTMENTS HAVE SHOWN DURING THIS UNPRECEDENTED TIME.
