    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.
    yes I recieved that email and after havent heard anything so was just wondering

        If the math is right and this current class doesn’t graduate until December 16th, we might not hear anything until next month. The uncert class could even be pushed to January because of the holidays, but I’m sure they’ll have the chosen candidates do the psych 2, medical, and finger prints between November and start of December. I hope we hear something this month but it wouldn’t surprise me if we didn’t.

          Who is it you are quoting here? Have you heard something about the upcoming class?

              How long before the academy started did they have you guys do the second psych and medical?

              • My buddy, current FF, says it was about 6 weeks before the academy began when he received his conditional offer

                  Every class gets their letters at different times just so you know

                  • Just mentioning what I have been told. Why don't you enlighten us and let us know when you received your conditional offer, that would be great!

                      I think 6 weeks +/- is a good indicator. Might be 5 or might be 7. It’s not gonna be under a month or over two. People need a reasonable time frame to schedule the remaining tests and give notice at their jobs after the final job offer. If December 16th is the next start date, a good estimate of when the county will send out conditionals would be at the start of November. Anything before that is surely welcome, anything after would just keep torturing those waiting to hear something lol

                        When you mention +/- 6 months what exactly are you referencing? do you mean weeks? Yes, I agree with what you said at then end which leads me to believe you had a typo at the beginning.

                          • Anyone who’s in the running for the uncert class heard anything about their background investigation? As in hearing from your neighbors or previous employers?

                              I haven't heard a thing since my psych. The class is selected and letters are supposed to be sent before OR on November 1st. Anyone know if those of us who havent seen a background investigator have a shot or have we been benched until the next non-cert class?

                              • How do you know that the class has been selected already?

                                Don’t want to be the bearer of bad news man but unfortunately if you haven’t heard from Background’s after the pysch you might be held to the next class. I heard from backgrounds a few days after my psych and met with my investigator for initial paperwork but haven’t heard since and my neighbors weren’t contacted. I hope that doesn’t mean anything either!
