          I know their is currently a class in now. So this class starting Monday will be in the academy the same time as the other. I believe the other class is scheduled to be done around July/August because they started in September.

            Thanks, I didn’t know that there was a class already half way through. Just trying to get an idea of when the next class (not the one Monday) might start

                  Didn’t make weight? Is there a height to weight requirement that candidates need to meet. If so, does anyone have the requirements on hand?

                  • I also dropped 3 spots. I think it’s from people deferring to the next class since all points have been added.
                    Does anyone have a rough estimate on what number they got up to? Im sitting pretty good at 2xx and was trying to prepare for a possible 2nd class.

                      • Anyone know if the class actually started today or is it postponed for now?

                        • I know this forum is geared more towards fire fighter info, but if anyone knows what the testing is like for fire service emt it would be a huge help! I’ll hear on the 23rd when the testing day will be. Just want to be prepared as much as possible.

                              Someone said they reached 174 in an earlier post. I was told that the first class from our list thats currently in the academy is 100 cadets. So basically they went through 174 to find 100 cadets. I was told historically the further down the list they go, the more people they have to go through to fill a class with ideal candidates. Also they plan on another class in August/September 2020 and another in February 2021. My interpretation of that is at minimum the top 400 will get a shot. Thats just my math for whatever thats worth.

                              FYI. The Coronavirus pandemic has not halted the academy as of now. They are business as usual.

                              Thats all the info I have. If someone has more info your input is more than welcome.

                              Looks like for now we just have to be patient, stay in the gym, on the track and out of trouble.
