  • Completed med on 22 June. Have not heard from anyone since then. Strange to think that I might not hear of anything again for another 3 months if so. On the plus side I get to see how things play out for this class ahead of me in these Covid times Good luck to all

    • Yeah im in the same boat med June 22 have not heard anything since

      • For those of us partially processed (through initial or through BI and assuming a good medical), should we have any worry of not getting a shot at an academy date? Would they for any reason scrap this list - including people processing - and have a new test? Might be a ridiculous worry but that’s what the unpredictability of all this seems to do

          I’ll start by saying I am still waiting for my number to get called, so this is only my thoughts. But it seems like a poor choice to scrap a list right now. In order to have a new candidate pool they would need to hold another test, which would require thousands of people come together to take an exam. Given the fact you cant even have 10 people in a room at once right now, I do not see that being an option. But hey maybe this is just wishful thinking, but I don’t see how this would be a feasible option.

            It’s not a feasible option. They will continue with this list. Just like when we tested in 14 they were still pulling off the prior list for I believe about a year or so after we tested into 15 or even possibly 16. Also like stated above with everything going on now and group gatherings, I could not see them even trying to make another test until the end of next year at the very earliest

              You’re right, even if they announced a test tomorrow it wouldn’t happen for several months. Then it’ll take atleast 4 months to give results (judging from 2014). Then after that, it’ll be years before a class is hired of the new list. All the while, classes will be made from the old list.

              However, those of you through the process should make sure all requested information is given to CFD and your CPAT is completed asap. You don’t want to have any delay in the event a hiring freeze happens, which hasn’t been discussed but could definitely happen

                    • Yea that’s what I was expecting or maybe late April for medical.

                      • I’d guess the next class won’t start in the middle of a pay period like this one did. So November 2nd is my guess for the next class. Don’t quote me on it. Not a rumor. Just an educated guess.

                        • Any idea when they’ll start reaching out to the remaining 200 people in this 7th referral?

                            I think there is more than 200 waiting for the email in the referral.

                              • When you guy say 200 are left from the 7th referral, are you referencing the people that have already been called and had their background checks done?

                                or people that haven’t even been called for initial processing?
