    Go for it ffthomas, there are many recruits that have been hired that do not have any prior experience, or paramedic background. Mind you its not always because you have these prior experiences/certifications that get you hired. The polygraph and psychological are big factors in them.

        My understanding from Annie was that they would not send you from one step to the next unless you had passed the last. Like the detective would not discuss the results with you or at least he did not with me, but I knew when Annie called me to schedule Psych that I had passed. You should know the results of your psych, the psych examiner did tell me that he was giving the recomendation, I would have thought that they did the same thing all the time.

        Unless of course you are from out of town, and then they may have scheduled them all together for one trip....

        Good luck though.

          • I was at a meeting yesterday at HQ and ran into the storied 'Ms. Annie'. I passed along the many good things I have heard here. She was very grateful for your comments and will continue to do her best for all applicants she encounters.

            Unfortunately, there is no new news.

              • Maybe somebody who knows more than me can chime in here

                I know there are some departments in the virginia area where if you take the written test for one, you don't have to take written for the others.

                I took fairfax's, anybody know where else the fairfax test might count for?

                    It's weird seeing Fairfax County anywhere but the first page.

                    Thought I'd do my part in bringing it back to the first.

                    Any news from anyone?

                      I think the one that multiple depts use is the CWH, there may be others, but I know that both Arlington, Prince william, and maybe Loudoun use the CWH. To the best of my knowledge the Ffx test is custom designed by them so it likely is only used by them.

Unfortunately though, if you have seen those videos of the 117th and the 118th recruit school, they will be stopping the recruit videos as the videographer is leaving after the 125th. So remember to take advantage that you will be able to bring your cameras to the academy. It'll be rough but very fun. Enjoy and stay safe!
                          That's good news about the instructor. Thanks jklm128. So who is he/she? Any info about his/her history or instructing style that might help us to know ahead of time? Thanks for any advice!
