Just my opinion though.
      Exactly what I was going to say. Mind blowing that they would spend so much money and time on a test and only take 250 before throwing it out. It’s just not logical.

      I heard, from an OCFA captain, that their most recent academy had planned on 50 candidates to start the academy. Only started with 42 as some candidates took offers somewhere else. There has to be some forethought in that over a couple years, the list of 250 will dwindle. And I’d be surprised if it lasted a year, let alone 2 or 3.

      But what the hell do I know...

        That's why i asked the question about the process. Of course everyone would like to be in the 250, but if that means 250 still haven't gone through backgrounds-there will be many, many that don't get through.

        You guys don't get discouraged!

          what's so hard to believe. Most of us have made phone calls and bottom line the list is GOING to EXPIRE next month.

            Just because you made a phone call and the person on the other line said it's going to expire doesn't mean it's going to expire. This is county. If you've ever had any experience with their process then you know just cuz someone said something doesn't mean it's going to happen. They don't know what they're going to do. They already spent tons of money on this process. With budget cuts why would you throw it away to start a new one? Makes no sense

              Because if they continue with the list they would have to invest more money with this process that they don't have. When they switch to the fctc it will be paid out of pocket by the applicant. You can believe what you want, but the writting is on the wall.

                doubt it, SDFD uses FCTC and they just put on the test and don't charge anyone. and your information throughout this thread has been reliable as a Fiat

                • Either way 50 bucks to take the FCTC, weather they pay for it or not they still have to pay to use FCTC services I believe.

                  • A a flat, last i checked i said way back the list would expire and not be extended. SDFD can do that because they pay their guys so low. This is why i don't deliver information, because guys in threads get their hopes up, then when someone comes in and is realistic then he is the bad guy. Bro i have seen you in different forums including California firefighter you always question everything and turn out to be wrong. Im leaving this forum too many salty men who think they are owed something. You all bragged about being band 1. Well guess what a lot of guys were because the test was a joke hence why they are trashing this list and using a real test. respond if you like i will not be back on.

                        How would they be investing more money? The testing is over. All that's left is backgrounds and medicals, which you would still have to do if they switched to fctc. So to throw away a list that's established to start a new one makes no sense. Buts it's just an opinion. I'll take your word for it. After all your aunt is in recruitment.

                              Oh sir, the Giants of New York took on the Packers of Green Bay. And in the end, the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big "H". It was a most ripping victory.
