    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

    Is the latest rumor still a September academy? Wouldn't that run through Xmas?

    I didn't think that was a rumor. It originally came from DFD's website and it's still listed there.

    I don't know what they do if an academy runs into a holiday though. I would look on their site to find their contract details. I would assume they would follow the days off for their office employees in the academy too since their training instructors don't work 24/48s. Just a thought. It's probably out there if you do some looking. Or maybe one of the DFD guys will chime in.

    I'm really hoping that we make it into the Fall academy...going through that testing process again must be tough.

    If you are in academy and it is a holiday, you will get the day off and just come back to normal schedule afterwards

    Just noticed so figured I would share: DFD's website now says Fall academy of 20 for 2013. Don't know if that's good news that they say 20 specifically, or bad news that there is no mention of September specifically. Let the speculation begin.
