    I had emailed Mr. Wilson this question back in September 2012 and he stated then that our names should stay on the eligible register until September 7th 2014 unless a new eligible register is approved before that time. So if the next list takes as long to get certified as this current list did it may last a little longer.

    They just posted an advertisement for another testing cycle. Don't know if that's good or bad for this list.

    On the Facebook.

    It's a ways away, but like I said, not sure how it affects this list:

    This list took so long to get in place I don't think the next round would be in place for around the same timeline (just assuming). Looking forward to testing again though.

    Is it weird that I'm excited about something so far away. Every time I test I look forward to it. Glutton for punishment I guess, or what's that saying about insanity? Expecting different results for doing the same thing over and over or something like that. lol

    Good luck with finishing things up guys.

    I was surprised how many showed up given the bad weather. I left at 5 from the springs and got there around 7:45, but I saw at least a dozen cars that had slid off 25 on the way up.

    This is always the quiet time of threads, when those that moved on are in their academy (almost)- too busy to post- and info is scarce while the rest of us wait.......

    So I have a question about the polygraph. I took it recently and Im not sure if I should be waiting on information on the results or not. Will they contact you and let you know it you passed/failed? My examiner told me he failed a bunch of applicants he examined. How do we know if we passed?

    Mind you, the only reason I'm asking is because he told me all this information prior to taking the test and he made me extremely nervous.

    No, you won't get they results from them. Your background investigator will followup on anything that the examiner puts in his report; be that you trying to be evasive or deceptive or anything bad that came up (you admitted to). Your psych examiner will also have his report, so you may hear them refer to it.

    It's easy to say, harder to do, but try not to worry about it. I've been in your shoes though. Taken 4 now (passed first 3, waiting on this one like you) and this last one was the only one that I left feeling like it went well. I don't have anything in my past to be worried about or would eliminate me, but they are not meant to be fun. Try not to worry about it.

    Take care
