      No, and it’s not something to be worried about if you are. Luckily you guys have months before the next academy class so if you do need to see a specialist, there’s no need to hustle last minute like our group had to do last November.

        • All they did was a blood test, the pulmonary function test, vision and hearing test, an x-ray of your side and back, the stress test which lasted a total of 14 minutes and a normal physical with the doctor. I was there for a total of three hours. Nothing physical outside of the stress test. Hopefully that helps

          • Hello everyone and congrats to those who are in the academy. Has anyone from the initial packet turn in in November heard from Medical or Background investigations yet? Thanks

                    • How long does it usually take to hear from the background investigator? I process on the 13th and out of curiously what does the investigator tell you when he calls you?

                      • From the start of initial processing(7-16) took approx. 1month 2 weeks(9-9) when I received phone call from background investigator. I know some people who received call from background investigator 2 weeks before me. I was contacted for medical scheduling on Nov. 20 to go in FAS on Nov. 26. I know others who were in my initial processing that completed medical in mid Oct and made it into the academy Nov. 18th. I hope this bit of info helps everyone currently processing. Best of luck!

                            In all honesty just try to do your best to answer unknown numbers. When bi called me i was driving home from work, I got lucky. But I am confident they will leave a voicemail if you do not answer initially.
