    No problem. I know they tell you to disclose EVERYTHING, but there is such a thing as too much info. If there's no record of it (a grass allergy you handle with an otc medicine that isn't on record, for example), don't put it down. Only give them what you have to; don't volunteer things.

    Thanks, I hope you are right.

    Yeah man it's nothing serious, just got tested to see what I was allergic too when I was around 10 years old. never got prescribed meds or anything. Just asking because like you said I don't want to disclose unnecessary things, but don't want to leave out things that lead to a potential DQ. Thank you again

    SO i ran the course this weekend. THe map that Manhatten Medic posted was pretty spot on. My running gps though said it was a little more than 1.5 miles. And their is a lot of traffic on that road with not a lot of sidewalk. Did you guys run it on the road and have it closed off? Because there was alot of baseball games going on . I felt i was going to get run over by the mini vans lol.

    Any body have any idea or theories on why they are waiting till July 29th to start the next class. I know sometimes they give a short break in between classes, but this is over two months and all we keep hearing is how badly they want to hire.

    I know it's likely no one knows for sure the answer to this, I'm just curious people's thoughts and if they will do the same thing after the July class?

    have no idea myself, just assumed that they usually have classes in January and July. The city's new fiscal year starts 7/1, not sure if that matters for this.

    It does seem like an excessive amount of time between classes. I'm just taking a stab in the dark here but maybe since the instructors are still active firemen they want them to be able to get at least a few months a year in the firehouse? I bet Skyline would be able to answer if he was around.

    Yeah I was the one that took that methocholine test last week for allergies. Passed it so that means I don't have asthma. Your fine if its just seasonal symptoms and no serious meds are needed.

    Anyone going to the rock tonight for that final session?

    Passed the physical but extra time there couldn't hurt.

    I know it was mentioned way back that after this first class went through a 18 week academy they were going to push it back to that ridiculously long 23 week one. Hoping those were just crappy rumors. Anyone going through the process now for July have any info on that? Maybe your investigator said something?

    The commissioner did say it was gonna be two classes per year with a prediction of 8548 list numbers going through in order to meet their hiring mark. I guess the city is really sticking to this two classes per year quota. I guess time will tell, good luck to the upcoming class.

    In the past, they've started whenever the last class finished. 7 years ago the class was only 13 weeks. The month didn't matter.

    I'm sure some of the guys like the chance to return to the field from Proby School, but that's not why the job does it. I'm not sure anyone knows the answer to this question.

    It was 26 weeks for a brief period, not 23, and they haven't indicated that they'd be going back to this. Hey, if they told ya it was a year long, you'd probably still do it, right?

    Damn right I would still do it! I was only bringing it up because from what I heard when they did that long academy they ran out of things to do and were having guys paint. People said it was a waste of time and that they should have just put all the probies in the field.

    1. The map I posted is the 1.5m test course, which is occasionally thrown in as part of the daily run, but not exclusively. To the guy asking about how we deal with the traffic: It's not as busy on weekdays, and most of the time the place is pretty dead. It's only with the nice weather and the Frieze art bull**** that we have to compete for space.

    2. I have heard the rumor that it will be longer for future classes with the reasoning that you guys will have to get a full CFR class, whereas we didn't. Just rumors though.

    3. As FDsouthbxNY said assignments are supposed to be handed out Wednesday.

    whats the most number of classes that they could fit in a year? if they are that long doesn't seem like they could fit more than 2 even if they wanted to.

    Technically at 16 weeks a class you could have 3 classes in a year back to back with no breaks. I doubt it'll ever be more than 2 a year from the sounds of it.

    I can answer, but its not like my source on the matter knows anything super special. Last week, the word was candidates were failing the medical in droves, and they had to push the start date of the 2nd class back in anticipation of having to test way more people than originally planned. No doctor wants to be on the hook for passing a dead candidate, when their medical shows hypertension in a comfortable environment. Its good that theyre maintaining those standards.

    A sad revelation however for people duped by misleading posters and/or outright lies doled out at recruitment events. Thats the way the truth works though; no matter how deep you try to bury it, it eventually bubbles right back up for everybody to see.

    Its a tough job. Its not for everyone.

    So i guess this is good news for those who are willing to train. We are talking about the Open Competitive Candidates, correct?

    Previous classes of 18 weeks and fewer included full CFR cert., so I think everyone can safely look forward to 18 fun filled weeks.
