    My sponsor said the home visit would be after perf. Maybe they are waiting for everyone to get finished with perf to do them together?

    I had to redo my chest x ray and bloodwork yesterday. So I'm a little behind you. After this would be home visit and chiefs interview. That's my understanding.

    $25K in free training, that is pretty sweet. Sounds like you got a lot of training ahead. Good luck to you man. Everything will work out for those who put the work into it.

    New to the forums here. Got a conditional offer from CFD. I got an e mail about the medical/psych eval a couple days after completing the poly. Sounds like they are getting us through pretty quickly.
    Yeah, it sucks. But there's always a silver lining to everything. Two days after my offer got rescinded I received a phone call from WorkOne, apparently one of my former employers broke a ton of laws when it comes to outsourcing jobs, and they secretly settled with the Department of Labor, I qualify for $25K in free training, they asked me what I want to do and I told them I want my fire and paramedic certifications, so I'll have those in about 18 months and that'll be an extremely marketable thing to have for departments.

The main thing I took away from it all was; "If you've left anything out on this packet, tell me now and it's all good...if not...you're done,"

    xMuDdBoUnDx I didn't have a current card when they made the offer. I did better than I thought I was going to do on it though. I got hurt pretty badly out at the Wayne Township training tower in October and sprained my left knee and had to drop out of Fire School because of it. I just got cleared to work out the week after Thanksgiving. It was just crappy timing, if I hadn't gotten the injury, I probably would have done OK on the CPAT, but I lost a month and a half of strength training because of it. It sucks, if I don't get picked up by Noblesville (I don't think Westfield is hiring anyone and I think Fishers just had a couple of guys start in December) by my 36th birthday, I'm going to look at jobs out of state.

They said my name goes back to where it was on the list though, so it's POSSIBLE that I could get picked up by Noblesville or Fishers if they do a recruit class before April 16th, otherwise I age out on PERF.

    I just got my pre-polygraph interview email today. My understanding is that they want to get all of this wrapped up before the end of January for a class to start some time in February.
