    I actually came on here to ask the same question, No I haven't. I have heard multiple rumors about certs going out and a class of possibly 35 for September.

      I heard rumors for spring/summer for Newark. Checked with others close to my rank, we've not received cert letters yet. Cert letters are moving for other towns and cities. My guess is Newark will send cert letters sometime soon.

          Didn’t even know they were hiring. I’m curious to know the timeline of the academy for those who get selected. But yeah I would assume Newark will be sending out too. And then they will accept Kearny’s cert until they get Newark’s and jump ship like usual. Lol

                Hope you're right about JC, I got certified last time, but missed it by 7 slots. They told me I would have to recertify so hopefully see something in the mail soon.

                  • I'm in the process of moving to NJ and plan on taking the next test. I had a couple of questions in regards to the civil service test. I understand most cities hire their own residents first. How often do cities exhaust their lists, and move on to the county and state list? Do they hire in sequential order based off scores, 5 spots they hire 1-5, or can they interview/hire so many per position?

                      So NJ is a very messed up place to get hired in certain aspects. Make sure you look into the NJ civil service rule of 1 and 3, which allows an appointing authority to skip 2 candidates for each open vacancy. For example let's say a city is only hiring one firefighter, they can skip the first two ranked candidates and appoint the 3rd ranked candidate without any reason at all. Most cities will hire in order of ranking so long as you pass the residency check, background check and a psych evaluation. Unfortunately some cities like where I live will skip candidates to hire who they want. I've been skipped over 2 times already since this list came out and have been sitting in the #1 position for a while now and it doesn't matter lol. Also it's rare for cities to exhaust thier own residents and resort to countywide, but some cities hire residents from other cities or even other counties. Anyone who lives in Passaic county or Essex County towns who take the test automatically go onto Clifton's list. Almost all the major cities only hire thier own residents though. Hope I helped answer some of your questions
