    For those that got them email yesterday (myself included) the CSC has a requirement that they process 3x the amount of applicants that they think they need. Good news for the guys waiting for an academy, but doesn't really mean much for us right now. Our list should be good till around spring/summer 2014 so we will just have to wait and see. Any movement forward is better than none though. If you haven't already started on the background packet, I would take a look at it and get going. It's a PITA.

    For they guys waiting, have you gone to oral boards yet or is that the next step? I have yet to make it that far the past times testing, but was just curious what type they are: formal, relaxed, chief/capts/LTs or just firefighters, long, short, conversational or questions with no followup. Thanks in advance and best of luck.

    I haven't heard anything since I got the email about being put on the eligible register. Hopefully we will hear something soon about interviews if they really want to do another Academy early next year.

    Same. Eligible Register was the last word. Now it's back to standing by to standby. Sounds like the CSC is still waiting on the Manager of Safety's word on a 2013 Academy date. There hasn't been any real indication on when in 2013 that may be.

    DFD and Aurora do joint academies, AFD is planning on an academy in March/ April 2013. If DFD does a "Back to Back" academy, the current academy is completed in the first part of december, so with taking the holidays into consideration the next academy would not start until Jan/ Feb, and that is the best case.

    It seemed like we had an appointment once a month between steps, we had the Suitability test in march followed by other tests, with the final CPAT in June.

    Sounds good thank you.


    I will also second what yjbody said after starting the backround packet don't wait it looks like it will take awhile to gather all the information you will need.

    This would be great news. Here's hoping...

    So 2a passed easily. That bodes well for the future of our list!

    Looking forward - does anyone have any information about the structure of past DFD oral interviews?

    Hopefully 2a frees up the budget for the Manager of Safety to decide on an Academy date (and size). Next Commission meeting is Nov 16, so hopefully some new information comes down soon. Maybe interviews will be coming soon.

    The commission already submitted the 2013 budget, Hopefully they can ammend it with the 2a results. The current academy just finished "Hell Night". I'm still betting on a March 2013 academy.

    Aurora is shooting for a March academy, so perhaps a joint one with DFD is in the cards?

    What's everyone's Over/Under on a March Academy? haha

    Sounds like Aurora is beginning their Background Process. Their e-mail notice calls for March 4, 2013 being slated for their next Academy.

    Sorry for being off DFD topic, but I saw you guys posting about Aurora and I have an app in for the lateral. Has anyone heard anything about this? Is anyone on here in the lateral process? I turned in my app in May, got an email back stating that it was forwarded to the fire dept. and have heard nothing back. I know it does not close until the end of the year, but was curious if anyone had any info?? Thanks in advance.
