    I think so too! I don't think they would change everyone's hiring status if they didn't plan on a class soon! Cause last time they changed it right after the classes were filled and a month before letters went out so its coming just hate the waiting! It's worse then before cause you know it's coming but unknown when exactly! Especially when you have a family to worry about!

    Big griff are you back in the hiring process since you commented but never answered the question!?!?!

    I would hope that they wouldn't spend all of the money on a new recruitment drive/test when they have qualified applicants in the pool. ****, most of us were certified for hire/fitted/etc and labeled as "alternates" Happy New Year everybody, i'll let you know when i hear something through the grapevine

    I'm not ranting on the city..the fact of the matter is, is that the city will not accept the union's contract.

    The fact that the "rumored" start date keeps getting pushed back further and further every time someone posts on here.

    I could care less about passing or failing the medical.

    All I am saying is that. The list is good for 2 years.. And there is a flyer out for the new test..you need to check yourself.

    And how am I raining on someone else's parade by saying to not hold your breath? To go to school and keep training and testing elsewhere?

    Check myself?? Maybe you should reread what I posted before. I know the list is good for 2 years it would be up for another test in November that's What month u took it in And it was 2011 which means this would make it the 2nd year and another one will be given in November or by the end of 2013.
    If you didn't care about the medical why are you still writing like your still on the list?!? Move on and leave the rumors to be just rumors it doesn't apply to u anymore they will most likely hire again from the remainder of the guys still on this list its just a matter of When! Just don't keep playing off all these rumors when something happens we will let you know! Other then that you should call that number to get back registered for the next test and good luck to you!

    That's when the list expires though. Not from the date of the last test, but from the date the list was made official.

    just FYI
    The list was released the 3rd week of March 2012. So technically it's been out for 9 months

    Review of Civil Service Regulations. Hope that this clears things up for some.

    10.02 - EFFECTIVE DATE OF ELIGIBLE LIST.

    10.021 - PUBLISHED LIST OF CANDIDATES. A list signed and approved by the Director or his/her designee containing the scores, rank and status of all candidates eligible to compete in an examination. The Published List of Candidates will be used to notify candidates of their score, rank and status. The Published List of Candidates may not be used for certification and appointment until it has been established by the Director or his/her designee. The time limit for review of examination results as defined in Regulations 9.09 and 9.11 shall begin on the date that the Published List of Candidates is approved by the Director or his/her designee.

    10.022 - ESTABLISHED ELIGIBLE LIST. A Published List of Candidates will be considered an Established Eligible List on the date that the list is signed and approved as ready for certification by the Director or his/her designee. Eligible candidates may be certified and appointed at any time after the list has been established until the list expires or is exhausted or cancelled. The Director may publish a List of Candidates and establish an eligible list at separate times or simultaneously as deemed necessary or desirable to meet the needs of the service. The duration of the eligible list will be determined by the date that the list is signed and designated as an Established Eligible List.

    10.07 - DURATION AND REPLACEMENT OF LISTS.

    10.071 - NON-CONTINUOUS AND PERIODIC LISTS. Eligible lists established as the result of non-continuous or periodic examinations shall continue in force for at least one year from the date that the list is signed and designated as an Established Eligible List until exhausted or replaced but in no case longer than two years. When a more recent list has been established for a class, the Director may determine that a previous non-continuous or periodic list for that class, which is more than one year old, shall be canceled and replaced by the more recently established list, or consolidated in accordance with Regulation 10.08 if it has been determined that the selection process used to create both eligible lists is equivalent in content and level of difficulty.

    A friend of mine on the job was at the academy this week, and tried to find out some updated info for me. He said he spoke to multiple instructors who stated that the next academy date should be in the "spring time" but nobody had any concrete answers. One instructor he spoke to said that the spring time would be too early.

    Just a lil update for everyone

    That sounds pretty consistent with what I've heard at the academy! From what's been said the bunker gear for the 188 is already at the warehouse of the manufacturer. So it's just a matter of when the class will start.. So guys and gals just sit tight keep your self mentally and physically strong-cause when your number is called -it's on from there... Stay safe.

    Guys I'm telling you what is being stated by instructors in my class. And it was stated that bunker gear has already been ordered for 188 as standby. But as far as another class they are pretty sure that this class will go through-just not sure when.. Stay safe.

    Big Wil- take a word of advice....You need to GTF off here like right fooking now. Delete your profile/account and dont come back until you pass your one year probation. If the FA staff finds out you have been on here, especially that loudmouth with the cueball for a head (Lieut. P) you'll be on the outside of the gates looking in.

    Is everyone's status still the same on the gov website? I'm just trying to make sure we are all in the same boat and keep track of any changes, if any. Thanks.

    Yeah I hear ya on that lol! I'm just trying to keep track of all of us. If we all get into the next class together, then I would be up for getting everyone's email and keeping in touch. It would be cool to even meet before the actual class starts to put a face to some of the names here.

    Not to hijack the thread, but if anyone is interested in supporting the current PFD, there is a petition going around to have their award implemented

    Here it is
