    Yeah, I know a guy that had a great chance of getting on and couldn't move forward because his certification was 2 weeks late from being re-certified through the state. A friend of mine who is on with Phx, said he was speaking with the Chief who's in charge of auditing and deals with the grant and the Chief told him they had a list of like 20 or 30 guys who were in the same situation. I believe they were stopped from being able to move forward to the 2nd interview. I don't really understand how they were able to go through with the 1st and then be stopped when they had the chance to move to the 2nd round. The EMT and CPAT is something I would definitely stay on top of and keep current. You never know when you could be expecting an interview.

    phx123, have you heard for sure that the academy size will be 28? A lot of the guy's I know have been telling me 28 as well, but I heard yesterday from a Captain that he heard some talk of an even bigger academy than that. So, I was curious if that number was for sure now that they know how much of the SAFER Grant they have to work with.

    I was told 28 but things change around here so fast, I wouldn't be surprised if that number isn't accurate

    thanks for the info everybody - glad i posted on here. i only know of a few folks with PHX but i heard it would be a larger academy for sure. More is always better, so i'll stay optimistic with that for now. I would guess that if they're looking to start an academy in January maybe we would expect notification by October or so?

    Just sweating because I had a 78 and i'm sure there were a ton of scores in the 79-77 range. Doesn't seem like any other valley departmen

    Arizonaguy85, I hear ya man! I'm also trying to stay as optimistic as possible. I got a 79 and I've been let down twice now between the first time of 94-84 and then last time of 83-80. Even more of a rub in the face when all my friends who are on with Phoenix then call or text me, "did you get an interview?!". And I get to explain how I missed it by a point to each one. Hopefully 3rd times a charm though! Good luck to you.

    All I've heard is that we may receive invites for orals in the next month or so, but as always, it's never for sure and i don't really know anybody important with PFD who could confirm. This is all "through the grapevine" information so take it lightly. No idea who many they would even be looking to interview.

    All I've heard from a Red Shirt is they're considering doing an academy pretty quickly, which may shorten the interview span of only 2, instead of 3. They may be looking at doing an academy starting at the beginning of December. This is also just information that isn't completely for sure. I have a friend who's a Captain and supposed to be on the oral boards this time around and he hasn't even heard any solid information yet. Like phx123 said in an earlier post, they have a list of guys/gals they were considering just calling and offering a job. So, it sounds like they're going to probably take those guys and then interview more to fill up the rest of the spots for the 28. Again, nothing for sure though. Just have to wait and see what happens.

    Invites were supposed to have gone out this week, but I don't know if it for sure happened or not. Academy is going to be around the second week of January and I don't know if this is completely true or not, but I heard that since they moved the academy to January they are considering hiring 35 instead of 28 because of retirees at the end of the year and a truck that's taken out of service due to furlough days.

    I just got my invite today for the last hiring off of this current test. I just heard Thursday from a guy on the union that they're planning on testing again in the spring. They have a lot of guys retiring after the new year.

    I just got a letter in the mail on Saturday 10/6 to come in for an oral interview. Does anyone know if their interview is based 100% on the interview? I'm from out of town and really enjoyed the city when I went out there for the test. I'd like to make a station visit and I'm just looking for a little bit more information on their process.
