CPAT Testing Center Opens for Public Safety Job Seekers

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - April 24, 2019 - PRLog -- National Testing Network, Inc. (NTN), the leader in outsourced physical abilities and employment testing for public safety departments, announces a new CPAT testing facility in Florida, in partnership with Jacksonville Fire and Rescue (JFR), located at 2700 Firefighter Memorial Drive in Jacksonville.

NTN's state-of-the-art online testing delivers examinations with video simulations that depict scenarios candidates would actually encounter while working in the position they are applying for. After viewing the scenarios, applicants are asked how they would respond in a particular situation. This video simulation testing has been proven to be more effective than traditional paper-and-pencil testing in helping public safety departments find applicants who are the best fit for the job.

This testing site is the fifth CPAT and entry-level NTN testing location established in Florida. "With over 115 test centers in 31 states, we are excited to bring a new CPAT testing center option to firefighter departments and candidates in Northern Florida. This will allow us to provide local candidates increased CPAT test time and date options, which will support the departmental need to have a continuous pipeline of tested and qualified candidates," said National Testing Network President, Carl Swander, Ph.D.

When asked about the new partnership, JFR Division Chief Gail Loput stated, "Through collective efforts with our partners at National Testing Network, JFR is proud to offer the CPAT testing center in the Northern Florida region, furthering our commitment to firefighter health and safety."
