    • I haven't heard anything yet. I'll have a degree and cert to add to my file in a week, but I doubt it'll be updated in time to increase my chances of getting tapped for the upcoming class. Just hoping I make it in with what I have already.

            • Heard through a source who works with the academy that the September class is probably full already. Anyone able to confirm if it's true or not?


              Edit: Spoke with a neighbor who works alongside recruitment. He doesn't think the class is full because as of a few days ago the chief hadn't yet finalized how many medics, EMTs, and no experience candidates he wants in the class. Not sure which to trust, but for those still hoping for the phone call, it sounds like there is still time.

              • Still a few slots waiting to be filled.

                Comment


                • They're probably filled already. Today one of the recruits of the academy I'm in announced that he received a job offer for the Sept class.

                  • You are probably right. I'm not giving up hope until the class actually starts though. I've heard too many mixed things about if it's full or not, I've heard that people have been dropping out, and also heard there's a possibility the class may be pushed back closer to October. I don't know though.

                      • Thanks for the update. Was hoping my medic cert would land me a spot but guess I'll keep waiting.

                        • I, or someone else, will update once info is available on the next class.

                          Hang in there, and it'll pay off!!
