    I hope to see you at the next merit matters meeting then. Other minorities speaking on your behalf are the ones who are saying you can't make it on your own, people here are(maybe) stupidly joking about it. The real enemy of minorities is the Vulcans, using you for their own legacy.

    Ya, I think there's some sort of % they use off of that chart. So if according to the chart you should be 175lbs, they go a certain % x 175, then add that to the 175 and that is the weight you're allowed to be at. At least that's how I remember it being described on the 6019 thread.

    And if that gentleman was being serious, I hope he is weeded out of the process. As others have stated it is your own people the Vulcans, who have said repeatedly and often that without outside factors most blacks cannot make the job on their own merit insulting not just high quality candidates but high quality black candidates. Personally beefsupreme I hope to see you at a Merit Matters meeting or one of our own and if you need anything PM me as well. Best of Luck!

    Does any one remember how many questions were on the first part of the test? Assuming we are allowed to talk about that now.

    Rough guess..maybe 30-50..There was probably 20-30 for the hydomometer or whatever it was called..and the couple extra easy math ones before the personality test.

    So besides the psych questions, a good estimate is about 80questions? I was discussing it with some one already on and didn't remember myself.

    Just reporting what the daily news released today. Apparently the judge is going to hear 775 objections starting Oct 1. Suppose to last 4 days. Hopefully we get a better understanding of the situation at the conclusion of all this chaos

    I'm having a hard time finding the article online. I read it on a hard copy of the daily news. It was just small column smacked in the middle of the paper. I don't have the paper anymore tho. If you go into acvs or grocery store maybe they still haven't thrown out yest. Papers.
    The article didn't really say much other than what I reported. 775 objections will be heard, each one will be slotted 2 minutes for his statement and it will last 4 days. It kind of hinted that the judge will make a decision at the conclusion. That's it really

    I am not sure, but it is great news that they had to extend the fairness hearing from 2 days to 4 to get in all the people who requested to speak. Unfortunately if this judge has his mind made up already (which it appears he does) then even this impressive news may not mean anything to him. But, in the appeal process we'd hopefully get a more fair chance & then this would be something that forces people to take notice.

    A quick summary of the physical requirements:
    -CPAT
    -Stairmaster/heart rate test @ medical (HR can not exceed 90% of your theoretical max after 5 minutes on the stairs with a 50 pound vest)
    -1.5 mile run in 13 or less minutes ~1 week before the academy starts (at this point you've been offered the job and they're just making sure you are still in good shape). If you fail this you will be sent down to headquarters that day to do another medical, and another heart rate test.. and you will most likely fail it.
    -1.5 mile run in 12 minutes or less, 30 pushups in 1 minute, 30 sit ups in 1 minute, and 4 pull ups on day 1 of the academy. If you fail any you have to do remedial work for the duration of the academy.

    The department has started CPAT training for #2500 candidates and outlined all of the above at the orientation.

    Are they giving the CPAT to all the 2500 guys or just a group of them? I would assume all of them cause we don't have scores, but I don't want to assume.

    If they do all EMS promos for the first class, will they wait to CPAT us til right before the next class goes in?

    Who picked the 700+ people who are being allowed to speak at the hearings?

    They've been saying that they are processing all EMS candidates at the same time, since there's only about 800 of us. It seems like they expect to get at least 1 full class out of the EMS list. Don't know if they expect, or will be able to get a 2nd full class off of it. I suppose after a class makes it in they will decide whether or not to start processing OC candidates.

    Based on logic alone (im no insider), i would imagine the second class would be OC canindates just because they cant just take 800 EMS uniforms off the street without replacing them right?

    That's generally what I've heard as well. Back with 6019 they were only able to take 80 for the first class and about 200 were OC. Obviously the number they draw from EMS this time around will likely be higher but I don't think they could afford to loose 300 bodies in EMS let alone 2 full classes.

    There's a lot of moving parts to all of this. Not all of the candidates on the EMS list will be eligible immediately, because of the requirements to have 2 years in civil service status. They seem to be making it quite clear that they expect to bang out a class of just EMS candidates ASAP (which would be January if everything goes right), and will probably prepare for another class right after that.

    If a January class does go in I guess I would expect the 2nd/3rd classes to be mixes of EMS/OC. This is a whole lot of speculation though.

    Are members of EMS allowed to take the promotional exam prior to having 2 years in civil service status?
