    I wasn't able to make it to a practice session. How was the physical? Any issues you saw people having? Thanks.

    At the practice session they mentioned around 3-4 will be selected for the July academy, but a lot more will be selected for the following academy.

    Thanks for the link! Has any prospective candidates rec'd and/or heard a response from HR ragarding the Feb. Academy. Also, does anyone know about how much time is given b/w receiving conditional notice and start of academy or approximately what was given in the past? Thx.

    As of right now, the start of the academy has been delayed by at least 1 month. I will provide further information as it becomes available.

    Just wondering if the delay in hiring may be due to the arbitration in progress?

    In a sense, yes, but not really. It's complicated. Oh, and I was just looking at our local site, they have the updated list posted. Also, the "banding" has been un-banded, so it is NOT in effect. I can say that everyone on the 1st page of the list who is still eligible should be hired once the calls start to be made.

    Any outlook for a potential "March" academy or is that looking pretty grim?
