    Some really great info here. Thanks for the posts. So the Sept. class could be 14 weeks? What about the weekends? Is it only Monday thru Friday training?

    I heard that the big push for the 14 week program was to have more company operations days. And I think less night classes.

    Should be interesting, I predict there will be more hands on but more between the recruits.

    Just because they are from Hartford does not mean they should be idolized or the other instructors aren't as good.

    Beware of the 2 and 20 instructors...they aren't as respected among their peers as you might think!

    Down to 68

    The class size is down to 68. Stamford dropped their guys out. And they are bunking up 2 to a room> this is from one of the lead instructors that I work with

    With any luck it will encourge them to drop the mandatory "sleep at the academy" rules. Originally it was optional to stay at the Academy during recruit school except for one or two weeks for night classes. It's only been recently that all recruits were required to stay there for the whole course.

    puplepants8,
    Don't kid yourself they said they would change the pants 15 years ago when I was there. It will never happen!!! You will be the burgandy brigade forever!!! Vern loves that you stand out from all the other EMS companies.

    Congrats to class 38 from class 12!

    By the way, Congratulations to those of you that will be in class 38!! Enjoy it, the 10 and a half weeks goes by very fast, and believe it or not, you will miss it a little when you leave.
