    @ fire-medic & irishfire1495 I am not aware of a 2nd Psych test? I did multiple psych exams and met with the psychologist afterward, all on the same day. I was not told there would be any more psychological tests. I was told my results would be forwarded to the Background Investigators and they would determine if was suitable for the position. Were you guys told something else??

    mikesica78, yea it's a two part test, you have to pass the first part to be eligable for part 2.

    Default 2nd psych

    Yeah I remember being by the doctor that if I passed the first portion you would then go.in for the second portion which is like a medical psych testing for depression and any kind of mental disorders that could affect you on the job but not as intense as the first portion. Definitely we will take that and continue to.the CVSA. If you pass that and nothing pops up in your background then I'm guessing we will.end with a medical check and current job visit and maybe some.neighbors.

    If you spoke to the psychologist then it sounds like you completed the whole psych test. We did ours in two days. A lot of the same. Written tests with strongly for to strongly against answers. All geared towards finding inconsistencies in your answers. The last thing that we did was interview with the psychologist. That has to be the last portion so that they can go over the results of the MMPII and discuss any red flags. Remember that just because the doc asks you about something that might be suspect, doesn't mean that you are screwed. Just be yourself and explain your situation. If I remember correctly, most everyone in my class had at least one or two "red flags". Just answer their questions and be yourself. You don't want to be stiff as a board in there. They are not looking to fail you.

    As far as the fingerprints go I honestly don't know. We did ours before the psych test. I mean, obviously if you haven't finished the second portion of the psych then being fingerprinted doesn't mean it's a lock. You have to get past the psych and cvsa first. Relax guys, you are almost there. I predict a February 22, 2012 date of hire.

    Once again, I want to be clear to you guys that I am by no means affiliated with the hiring process/background investigation. I was just like you and remember what it's like. Good luck all.

    I went for fingerprinting today with FF/Investigator Navas. He said " tell everybody just because you are doing fingerprints does not mean that you have the job"

    He told me they will do the CVSA next week. He also said we will do the 2nd Psych test the following week. He said then they will break for the holidays and continue in January.

    @beachfire thanks again for your input!!

    Hey they only called back the top 30 for now and they are going to hire 21 in this first class. I know if you failed the psych then you would know already. Most likely you are in a good spot for the second class..

    I have finished all the required steps. I was told Background is finalizing their reports to turn into HR. I hope to hear from HR by the end of next week! Beachfire's prediction of training academy starting Feb 22nd looks good so far.....
