    So if the next class starts mid to late may we can assume the following class is October/november?

    Probably more likely to be in November rather then October. You gotta think that they need some time in between classes, but It's definitely possible. I think they just may be cutting back on the amount of time in between classes. I mean think about it, there was like a month and a half in between the first end of the January 2013 class and the June 2013 class. If you cut that down then it's very possible that they will start start the next class in early January of 2014, have it end in mid May and start the next class in early June. Just my opinion though.

    Mine sent out the reference letters yesterday

    I figured the time in between the last classes was just to finish processing candidates. I can't imagine the instructors needing "time off" when they are firefighters that opted for the work at the academy. I assume They work Monday thru Friday.

    I was always under the impression the run letters come a few weeks in advance of the class.

    Great. My investigator emailed me and told me that they had recieved my last bit of paperwork in the mail. So I responded with an email asking "So am I 100% good to go? Anything else you need from me?" (obviously written a little more professionally). Your investigator told you that they sent them out? Like everyone's? or specifically just yours?

    The run is done within 2 or so weeks of the academy start date.

    Ah. I hate to squash this but my cousin is a D.I and while yes they as you say "opt" for duty it is not something they ask of everyone. They prefer the D.I's to have a military background and its an honor to be selected. That being said it is not simply a Monday through Friday endeavor. They are there before the probies and stay till they are all gone. They come in on Saturdays to help with additional skills training and yes they also have wives, husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends and or kids. Three classes a year is a lot to demand of them. If asked they will of course step up to the plate because they are professionals but to make an assumption is at the very least presumptuous.

    It sounds to me that you and I might have the same investigator. Everybody else keep talking about their investigator like they're their next door neighbor or something. Mine:its like a ghost in the wind. Good luck though. I hope he/she responds.

    By the way, I was wondering if anyone else gets a weird feeling in their sternum after using the weighted vest for an extended period. I know it's not a heart issue (I go to a cardiologist annually). I'm at about 50lbs. for 10 minutes now. It's not really a pain but more so a feeling that my sternum needs to be cracked haha.

    There are a tons of lots, and parking garages there to park in. Just bring money with you, cause it's probably not gonna be cheap. It's worth it, cause I pull up, they take my car, and I'm done with it. No worries about tow, or tickets. I'd say it'll cost between $20-30, maybe a little more. One time, I found a lot for $18, but the next time I came it was $25.

    Yeah I'd be better off paying the extra rather than worrying about getting a ticket. Thanks.

    Can't say that I have.. But It could be from your diaphragm and other muscles working harder to expand due to the extra weight... Or the weight sort of bearing down on your shoulders..

    To anyone who has already went to the CPAT prep, is it an actual workout that's being done or just going through the motions? I'm debating whether I should workout in the morning as per my normal routine
