    Can't say. Maybe someone else knows.

    • Seems like they move you on as you pass and when the next step is available. Giving them a big pool of eligible people at the end. From there I am not sure how they pick people for academy.

        Thats the biggest mystery considering you have 2 years to get the call.

        What is even more troubling is that not everyone makes it to the end.

        like its crazy...3,000 apply written cuts to 2,500 CPAT 2,150 Medical 1,654 Polygraph 1,000 Psych 400

        Not accurate but you can see how this geaux.

        Im hoping I get in the Spring Academy...if not I gotta do everything over again

          Not sure. I called HR and asked if the written was pass fail She said yes but I think she misunderstood me. I was asking if it would affect the rankings

          I just hope that moving further along is a positive, and not just standard procedure. Once you finish the steps, what's the usual wait?

                That may be slightly off. I did the medical recently, but that is all that they scheduled. I still have to do poly and psych, which I believe are separate trips.

                1. Written 2. Medical 3. Poly 4. Psych - Add in another if you need to do the CPAT.

                    That's just what they told me in an email when I asked them.

                      Understood. Just giving you what I have done so far for a reference.

                        This is correct. every step in the process is individual. The only part you can skip is the CPAT provided your certification is 1 year old or less. If there are no budget freezes, you should finish the entire process in approximately a year, at which point you will be on the eligible list for up to 2 years. The frustrating part of the process is not knowing where you rank on the list, and the fact that there are constantly people entering the pool so you may be jumped by people who test after you.

                              How is rank determined?

                                Honestly I have no clue. I am sure your written factors into the rank somewhat, (even though they say otherwise) and from what I have been told, every interaction you have with staff throughout the testing process could be considered an interview. I think there are probably notes and other scores taken during every step that we don't even know about.
