When should we basically know the schedule for the panel interview once you’re done with the PAT?.

Based on what I've seen from online resources, the PAT test looks extremely similar to the PARE test, is this fair to say? What's the minimum passing time?
What is better? To be born good, or to overcome your evil nature through great effort?

I believe it is very similar. Pass time is 4 minutes, 15 seconds

Wow, guys

Tommy Douglas is rolling in his grave. Just got charged $60 to get medical clearance to run the PAT... Where muh free healthcare at tho.

We should only need medical clearance if we are unsure of ourselves. I've ran the PARE before and passed without any medical complications. Alberta does not require medical clearance to run the A-PREP, which is arguably a more physically demanding exam since we have the beep test after the obstacle course.

Just my little rant since I had to waste $60 for a doctor to kit my knee with a hammer and check my pulse/breathing.... We are supposed to be better than our southern neighbors.

EDIT: Just to reiterate, I am not angry that the clearance wasn't free, I'm angry because I was required to get it.

It's for liability reasons. I guess if other services lawyers are fine with the risk thats up to them. People will of course show up saying "Oh Im fit and healthy, because I say so, or because i think so" and really not be in order to not exclude themselves then run it and have an accident. Guys who have looked in shape have gone into medical distress during the test before. This is added protection so WPS can point at the doctor and say "he said it was ok." They used to also check blood pressure and such on site and if it was too high (over 150 I think) they would refuse to let you run it, even with a doctor's note.

I've seen doctors clear people who are not worthy of being cleared before. Either they don't take a good look or just flat out lie for their patients. If you use a walk in clinic they just take your word at past history as well, what good is that?

$60 for a job that will pay you $100K a year is a good return on investment.

Is there anyone who wants to prep for the Panel interview and discuss things.
@kiwiwings- was your panel interview competency based mate? would you mind sharing the feedback you got? or if you wanna send me a DM thats fine too.

As far as what I know, its competency based. this is my first application, anyone who has attended these before will be able to give specifics, but no one seems to be willing to talk. :(

That was my thoughts too. It was my first time also to apply so i have also no idea at all. I just bit worried since i am not a native speaker, crossing my fingers that all is well in the panel interview.
