    Default Joining the Fire Academy in Florida.

    Hey guys, I am going to be joining the Fire Academy this coming June here in Florida, I have a question for you guys... When I was 18 (going to be 20 when I join the academy) I made a stupid mistake and did a minor illegal steroid called Equipoise for 6 weeks, it is the ONLY illegal drug I have ever done my whole life and have not done anything before or after that. That being that case, what are my chances of passing the Polygraph/Psychological tests? If I tell the truth of course, what are my chances of being a worthy candidate?

    Thanks in advance.

    Victor

    Hate to burst your bubble but illicit = illegal. And steroids are scedule III narcotics on the federal CSA list, meaning they are illegal without a perscription.

    To the OP, just be honest about it, better to be honest then fail a CSV or poloygraph.
