I couldn't remember who it was that broke it down, guess it was you haha good job medic.
How MM and FFwnt2b managed to stay active on this forum during the week is beyond me. It's friday night and I'm ready for beddy-bye time.
It may be early but anyone anticipating a call for July make sure your loved ones/ significant others are on board. It makes a HUGE difference coming home and not having to worry about anything but eating, studying and sleeping. Square away your finances, your personal life, etc. You want as little to worry about as possible because the academy is your one and ONLY priority.
If you want to be really proactive, definitely start reading the probie manual. Any prior knowledge will really put you ahead and make it easier for you to wrap your head around things.
I do and I don't miss checking this everyday haha. Have a good weekend folks.
LOL, I stayed away at times. You get use to the whole routine, but for some they might never get used to it. Glad you survived the first couple of weeks. Keep at it, 18 weeks seems like a long time, but if you stay in it, you will be shaking the mayors hand in no time.
It's only week 2, you'll be a pro at this in 10 weeks.
Every part of my body aches. I have a new appreciation for Fridays.
We warned you. LOL
There will be worse weeks than this, but it's all worth it in the end.
I forget who asked, but to answer someones question as to what happens if you get hurt at the academy...
A friend of mine hurt himself during PT. A doctor at Metro tech examined him and determined it would take some time to heal and he could not continue the academy this time around. He was put on light duty at metrotech helping process the new candidates. He is still on payroll and will be recycled into julys class (as should I).
Keep training guys, it'll be here before we know it
im guessing more intake packets going out at the end of the month? any inside word on these?
so the three classes this year is dead, but I have to imagine that they'll get to 15-1800 for the next class. What is the highest number given a packet thus far, 2100? Hoping they get to 25-2600 for Jan '15 class.
As someone in the academy now I can't imagine how they could fit another 320 probys in with us but by now they know what the start date of the next academy is. The info may not be leaking out just yet but about 2 weeks in to every class was the timetable for when the date of the next class would come out. Who knows they could mean May 26. I don't know what week 18 of the academy is like.
I thought they said the last two weeks of the academy - given the nature of what is going on with the soon to be graduating class - that a new group of 320 could overlap with them then?
Obviously it can't be a sort of am/pm thing that they do in the PD academy.
Im guessing its a budget thing, if they don't do three classes. I mean that means people don't get rest, extra work for investigators etc etc
