    Appreciate this. Now is it common to have a 10 month hiring process or did you happen to have any hiccups? Was it that long because of COVID? I’m just trying to gauge extending at my current job ( military) or get out here in February. I’m supposed to be contacted by HR to start processing in Dec/Jan. But who knows with them lol
    If you are up next to start processing and your end of enlistment date is approaching I would focus on CFD. That’s my opinion. If you need to work another job somewhere for the time being while you process then do that. Get the process going for yourself. Again just my opinion

      Yea I definitely agree. It’s just a little unsettling leaving the military and a steady paycheck without a confirmed offer letter. I don’t see any reason I would have any hiccups in the hiring process, but ya never know.

        Yeah don’t sweat it! Definitely get processing started. Sooner you get started the sooner you can get on the job

          Well I think the original plan for classes this year per a foia request from the Chief was Feb, May, Aug & maybe Nov. It went Feb, July, Dec so basically if things were normal Dec 1 ppl woulda been 3+ months into what shoulda been the Aug class.

          have ready to go:
          DL (updated)
          SS
          Birth certificate (order another actual copy even if you already have one or two)
          Transcripts from HS and college
          employment history (3 Rec letters)
          Residence history
          education History
          Do the letters of recommendation have to come from previous employers?

              • Is Fire Academy South the same building where initial and final processing take place? Is this where the academy is held?

                • Has anyone had any pushback on an out of state CPAT card? I was only able to get one from A fire academy out here in New Hampshire. Will CFD question it at all or should I be just fine? I only ask because I have gotten one in the past from NIPSTA in the past and got an ID Card with my picture on it, but the academy here only gave me a printed sheet of paper signed and dated with agency letterhead on it. I would assume I should be good to go, right?

                      Show up in shape even though all pass the physical parts...usually. Eight guys went to the hospital during the July 22nd class’ first PT session. A couple never came back.

                            I spoke with HR and was told to expect An email from them at the end of December/ beginning of January.

                              • I just called CFD HR to see if I passed medical they told me everyone is out of the office until the new year, so maybe emails will go out then for more processing.
