    • [QUOTE=VAvol703;1455421]Didn't start PT until mid-week 2? Lucky you guys. Every academy I know starts it the first day of recruit school. Enjoy the relative ease of PT during EMT class, once Fire starts that daily PT is really going to wear you down on practical days!

      PT is rough for sure. Life gets a little easier when we start Suppression in April (when the 139th class graduates) and our PT gets rolled into fire like activities, but it'll still be tough. We start EMT tomorrow, so let the 8 week countdown begin

        • Wow after not hearing anything from HR since July I finally got my poly scheduled. Now to just relax and pass this thing and move on to the psych.
          Can anyone give a heads up as to how much time to allot for the exam? Is it a half day or full day? I start at 7:30am if that matters.

                • I have been searching through this whole thread and figured i could ask. I was just curious about some basic info about the dept and the hiring process and how everything works. I am a national registry paramedic and noticed that they always seem to be taking apps for paramedics. Just curious on academy, how the medic hiring process works, pay and all the basic stuff. I am very interested in applying!

                  Thanks

                  You could even PM me if it would be easier!

                        It went pretty good. I was there for about 4 hours. I was told that I would probably hear something by end of next week.

                        • They didn't tell you right there if there were any abnormal findings? Mine did (no abnormal findings, and that I passed), and from what I hear that's typical. Can't speak with authority though.

                              • I remember when I took my poly the guy administering it told me that your poly gets Q&A by recruitment and they have the final say on wether you pass or not. If you do you should get an email in like 2 weeks saying you passed
