            Thanks! Thinking back now, it was probably close to 7 years, and having to go get my paramedic. Definitely a long wait but didn't come easy for me.

            To those going through the process, or currently waiting, I know it's slow and the possibility of waiting 2 years for a call that might not come is discouraging, but stick with it! If you have to reapply after 2 years and do it all over again, absolutely do it. If it's your dream, don't give up on it.

            • So.... Got my poly results back. 'Inconclusive'. Apparently I'm given the opportunity to do a 'specific' retest. It can take up to 8 months to reschedule.

              Good luck everyone...

                Sorry to hear about this bruh. I was almost on the inconclusive lost as well. Had 1 minor hiccup which was slight. My advice to all taking the poly...be calm and just say yes or no. Dont hesitate. Keep your mind clear and focus on your breathing.

                Its a machine. Machines have beacoup errors. Give it H*LL next time!

                    Last I knew the roster was full at 37 recruits. However, I have heard that up until yesterday (Oct 10) they were still hiring, so I don't know if people have dropped out, or if they're still adding to the class.

                          We graduate March 30th. If they have a spring class it'll most likely start sometime in April.

                                We had been told the next class won't be until the August/September timeframe. It could always change, but the number is usually around 35ish, but it's all based on what the need will be.
