    26 weeks? If I recall correctly this last class was only 18 weeks. MM is that correct? If that is true, we got a LONG road ahead of us brothers haha. Can't wait though! It's looking like January for myself with a list number in early 400's. More time to train!
    26 weeks would be redic...im down but those extra 8 weeks would take a toll on even a healthy young body

    Also, it was said that they really don't know how this class is going to break down for a variety of reasons.
    Any mention of how many PHs going in this round?

    Takes a toll on your mind, too. There were two or three classes that did the 26 weeks and it does suck. But it's worth it. I wonder why they'd go back to it after doing the 18 weeks for one class. Maybe it's to give the PH's the square kick in the pants they deserve. Hopefully it gets a few of them out. If they didn't have what it takes to study for a written test, they won't make it through 26 weeks of misery.

    from what I heard since all the people in the first class are EMT they did not have to take some kind of course that everyone else would have to take. I believe it had to do with some type of medical training.

    1. It's not that you HAVE to get rid of obvious social media, it's that that's the easiest advice. If you can refrain from being an idiot on social media then you should be alright, but for some people that concept is impossibly hard. If you do something stupid on social media and the job finds out you may get official punishment, or worse, the whole job may find a way to punish you. A guy from my class is learning all about that right now, but I'll let one of the other guys OTJ tell that story.

    2. Hahahaha I heard this and mentioned here that I heard a rumor that it was going to be longer, but nobody wanted to believe that. Literally half a year, that's insane. Hope you guys like the change of seasons.

    Certified First Responder training. I imagine all future classes will resume getting full CFR training per NYS-DOH standards. Since everyone in 01-13 was already certified above that level they were able to just have us do a recertification class down to CFR, which we were able to do in 5 days. Doing the full deal will not add 2 months. I think you guys are going to be doing a lot more PT and a lot more evolutions.

    Wouldn't that put the July class all the way into January though? So, they would have two classes there at the same time, or two back to back classes with no rest for the instructors between?

    Classes over laped all the time in the past, that's a non issue. Why would the instructors need a "rest"? They aren't the ones pushing a 2 1/2 into a taxpayer and they get weekends off.

    Does being a NYS EMT have any impact on the hiring process from the OC list? I wouldn't think it would, but just inquiring

    I thought someone said a while back in this thread that there wasn't enough room at the rock to accommodate two classes at the same time.

    Yea, it would mean the Jan class wouldn't start until the last week of January unless like Takethedoor174 mentioned they do have 2 classes overlapping. I'm pretty sure when they did this in the past it was when the current class was at the very end, maybe like a week or 2 left until they graduate.

    I thought I remembered reading (and definitely remember hearing guys say) that 26 weeks was way too much time, like the instructors ran out of job related stuff for the probies to practice. They'd do PT/run, and then just try and find stuff for them to do around the academy.

    The classes can overlap if they time the logistics correctly insofar as when one class turns in their training gear and when the other gets it, etc. etc. But you guys don't have to worry about that stuff. Just wait and see what happens.

    If the class is supposed to be 26 weeks because the people on the OC do not have the CFR training, what will happen to the rest of the EMS guys? Sit around and watch?

    I spoke to someone that is in HQ's yesterday, and he said he doubts it will happen. He also said stop worrying about things we can't control, and just go with it, the reward at the end is worth any length of time and the academy.
