CPAT Distribution Inc. provides a convenient, professional administration of the Candidate Physical Abilities Test (CPAT) for firefighter candidates. Results are made available immediately for verification by any department. 

We provide testing in accordance with international standards. These standards require that all candidates be given two orientation sessions as well as the opportunity to participate in two timed pre-test practices. These orientation sessions must fall within the eight week period prior to your CPAT test. The timed-trials must be taken within 30 days prior to your CPAT test. Candidates must be signed up for a CPAT test in order to participate in either the orientation sessions or the timed practice trials. These opportunities are optional (but recommended) and are available to every candidate.


We manage all scheduling based on the dates provided by the testing centers/ Fire Departments.  This includes any rescheduling up to 48 hours prior to the test/practice provided.  Any issues that arise are handled by our staff and administrative team.


All payments will be processed through our secure website.  Any payment issues, refunds (if applicable) are handled through us.  Any payment issues will not fall on the testing facility or coordinate department.


Overall CPAT consulting is available and can be provided by our team who have an ongoing relationship with the IAFF.  We provide all data collection directly to the IAFF.
