    Taken from the www.miamidade.gov/tns website:

    Special Note: If you qualified, your name is on a list that may be valid for up to three years. The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Dept has sent emails to the first 320 candidates for additional steps in the hiring process. If your number is higher than that, be patient.

    Its just going to be a long 3 years. Some people say they will go through the entire list.....Others are not so sure about that....would be interesting to see if they go thru 940ish to hire the amount they need

    I can't agree more. I was one of those applicants that passed the A&W exam back in 2009 and now 2012. I was very hurt when they didn't hire from the 2009 list, now that I passed the exam for the second time I got a "lottery" number in the low 800's recruitment say be patient like they planning on hiring the entire list. I start nursing school this summer, I strongly recommend every applicant to continue their education. If anyone out their with information please share, does anybody know if they need more firefighters?

    I too tested in 2009 and recently. I passed both times. I have 2 years of fire experience, my ems degree, I live in Miami Dade and I am in the frs system already. Unfortuantly I didn't get a call back. I do know about 10 people that got called back 4 have records and the rest are alright candidates, nothing amazing. I also heard about 20 did not show up to the orientation. I ended up with a number in the 350s.

    Wait and see now. Good luck guys!

    Congrats Dexter I'm so happy for you, you're next up... I figured there would be some who would end up being disqualified, just hope they get up to the 800's... This is the only fire rescue I would work for...ijs

    I heard people were called back for the psych and some passed already. They're falling behind in putting the first class in which is annoying.

    Gents, how did they grade you guys? Did the written have a score to it? Did the CPAT? How did the County place you on the list? According to what values? Did they do a lottery, again?

    Pass / Fail on everything

    After the written everyone was given a random number aka lottery. Nothing ever changes in Miami Dade.

    I don't know exactly what number they are on but I've heard people have gotten offers already. Unfortunately in true Miami fashion they are late to put in the class they said they would already have in by April.

    I'm number 355. Not holding my breath.

    They got to to 130's. They gave conditionals to 90 people after the 2nd psych and finished background checks as far as I know there are 86 and they are starting 40 June 10th and the next 40 august. The 86 (or however many are left after the medical process) are being given for final approval and to be selected for the first class by the deputy chief and his panel. (no idea what happens to the left over)
