    I’d guess that If you haven’t done your medical you won’t be making the July 15th class. You need to do a covid test which takes a few days then medical and final processing. I don’t see that all happening in the next 2 weeks
    Situation:

    I scheduled my medical in 02-2020. Sometime in May the CFD Medical division followed up with me requesting blood work and a MD note stating that I am fit for the job. I turned that paperwork in a little over a week ago, and have not heard back since. Also, I have not been asked to get a COVID test done.

    Question:

    Does the fact that I had not been asked to perform a COVID test mean that I am still “not ready” for the academy this coming July? Anyone have an opinion? Much appreciated!

      I think they just make you do the Covid test for the medical. Not for the academy. But I could be wrong

      • Received a call for a medical fallow up at Clinton, is this good or bad? Is it for sure an indication of a red flag or could it be something else??

          It may be a medical issue they need you to clear up, and if I were you I would call my primary care doctor and set an appointment immediately, sometime after the CFD appointment. I would do so just in case they need your doctor to approve some medical issue. When I had to get a blood test and a doctors note from my personal doctor, CFD called me versus your situation. Good luck, hope this helps.

              I went to consentra on June 12, it wasn’t Dr. Wong it was someone named Myra. Scheduled a fallow up in room #200 and told to dress in business attire.

                      • Processed on march 25th. Haven’t heard from my bi yet so I think it’s safe to say I won’t make the July class. Would the next class after that be in 6 months?

                        • There may be some discrepancies; I'm #33xx Non preference and I thought I was passed over when I heard there was only 225 left in the 7th referral. I was told by HR that they are close to my number but not there yet, so it seems that there is still more than 225 left in the 7th referral. Unless that many people maxed out on the age requirements. For those still waiting for initial processing.

                            No, it’ll be 3 months. By the time the July class is at the Quinn in October, another can start on the EMS side.

                              I’m up at #36xx non preference. They mention when there would be emails going out for these last bunch?

                                Who did you contact?Email or phone? Im a Vet and still havent been contacted. Was told I was added to the referral, so I believe I may be at the bottom of this 7th referral. But would like to contact someone to confirm.
