  • Damn. Who knows when the next uncert will be.

    • I had an intake interview with backgrounds at the end of August after my psych 1 in June. My PI recently contacted me to verify some employment info. Pending the conditional offer I guess sometime in October (or the letter of death). Definitely crunch time. Good luck to all the non certs!

          I took my psych late August as well and haven't heard anything. I've read through older posts that say "no news is good news" when it comes to the psych. I guess we will all have to keep an ear out for when the next non-certified class will be.

              Do you mean the initial civil service exam from last year? The next thing should have been an email requesting copies of your certificates which went out around January 2019 for my medic classmates and myself. People got the email at different times though, sometimes weeks apart. If you haven't heard anything at all and have thoroughly checked your junk mail, there is a number you can call but we were instructed not to call asking for the status of our applications. Google 2018 MDFR Recruitment Packet and there should be contact info in the pdf.

                • Has anyone heard about a cert Nov class? Months ago there was chatter of 2 classes in Nov. Please read and answer my last post as well.

                      Brother I don't think anyone here knows that. If you are non cert and did your psych, be on the lookout for an email or call from BG.

                      • Uncert class is "supposed" to start sometime in Nov. It was Nov. 4 but that has apparently changed, possibly due to hurricane Dorian. The current class is to be extended about 2 weeks because of volunteering hours. Completed candidate files were submitted on Sept. 20 and the hiring committee is "supposed" to meet sometime this week and sending out conditional soon thereafter. Good luck to everyone and keep an eye out in your email (inbox, spam, junk, etc.)

                          Well I heard the current class #140 is supposed to graduate around November 27. Classes seem to end and start back to back, so I'd guess a few days from then the non-certified class will begin. For those asking about scores, I remember a woman from Backgrounds saying at my orientation "They are having a non-certified class in November with 40 spots. Whatever you scored on your Civil Service Exam doesn't matter anymore." Seems your score isn't a factor after the CPAT.

                            My guess is the next cert class won't be until early next year like Feb or March

                              Current class got extended to Dec 13th which is a Friday, I would think the non cert would start on the 16th that following Monday
