    Good luck to you. READ the questions very careful. Do no rush thought it. If they say you have three hours to take the test, use as much of that as you can.

    I also received that letter. Called up today... they told me that Feb. 20, and 22 were full up. I had to sign up for the 23rd. Kind of annoying... but, worth it. I plan on doing the best I can on it. Good luck to ya!

    Thanks for the information, guys. I've recently taken a CWH test with another agency, so that can be transferred, according to Prince William. I'm gonna call tomorrow and try to get that settled.

    Quayleman- What kind of testing? Did you take the CPAT and polygraph already?

    Has anyone heard anything since the polygraph?

    Has anyone heard if the July 2010 training academy was pushed to January 2011 or is the January 2011 training completely separate?

    :Why not contact the Prince William HR Department or who ever is handling the applications?

    That would have been the first place I would have checked, if I had applied with and not in here.

    There is an academy starting mid July with roughly 25 recruits and another starting in January.
