Ladder Climb Exercise

Candidates participating in the CPAT in Naperville have the opportunity to participate in a state-mandated ladder climb exercise. This exercise is not related to the CPAT and will not impact a candidate's CPAT test result in any way. A certificate of completion will be issued to those who successfully complete the exercise.

The ladder climb exercise will challenge a candidate's ability to climb to the top of an extended ground ladder that is in a fixed, inclined position. The candidate will then be required to retreat on the ladder to ground level. Safety information and event instructions will be provided to all candidates prior to the exercise.

The ladder climb exercise is conducted on scheduled CPAT practice and testing days.
