    seems they advanced many more ppl to the cpat than what was needed.

    Do you know if the second group consist of people who already interviewed or do they have a list of people to interview?

    I believe this is a a fresh group of people. Do you know of people that interviewed and didn't get into the first class?

    Yea, the unknown is frustrating , not to mention we started this process almost a year ago. I am confident that the people in the second class are fresh and haven't gone through interviews yet. I am nervous w that depending on the city's budget theres probably no guarantee on the second class. But hopefully we both hear something soon.

    Good luck to the new recruit class! It's funny how there hasn't been much talk about the hiring process or the new recruits. Only reason I knew the new class started was that PFD posted on Facebook a picture of recruits climbing a ladder. Good luck to everyone still waiting, hope to see you in the next class

    300 people passed the CPAT. DOT mentioned back in October that there might be a 2nd academy because they are short about 90 people on the department. I haven't heard anything since. If they do hold another academy it will be people who have passed the CPAT but have not yet done the medical and psychological evaluation/interview.

    Did you get a notice that you were selected for the 2nd academy or just about the next step in the process? When did you receive the notice if you don't mind me asking?I have not heard anything yet so I am just curious.

    I got a notice yesterday, saying I was selected for the second class and that it is tentatively beginning in July and that notices will be sent for psych and medical evaluations soon.

    I am fairly certain they use the psych eval as a personality and background assessment to act in a dual purpose as psych and interview.

    Hey y'all! Anyone know exactly what they're looking for in the psych eval/medical eval? Will they ask for old medical records? Because I haven't had a primary in years. Also, can you fail if you're on prescribed medication for insomnia or ADHD? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    I still haven't received mine either. Maybe once the second group is final they will send out a rejection letter. Just sucks to train so hard and not get chosen.

    I haven't heard anything directly from DOT since the bi-lingual email they sent out, I only knew about the first academy starting and second academy notifications through this thread. I would like to know if everybody who is going to get notified has already gotten notified or if there going down a list and their still available slots for the second academy. Whether it's a yes or a no it would be nice to know either way.
