    You should be able to just select Long Beach from the list of recent openings and pay $7 to have them send your scores.

    Took the test Saturday and was told they had a lot of people testing. 2 sessions each day for two weeks straight just at the location I was at. There was about 20-25 people at my test. Just got my results back and I did pretty well. It will be interesting to see where the draw the cut off mark as far as scores. Im not sure how many they plan on hiring. A friend of mine is in their academy now from their internal test. Time will tell I guess.

    Ending date for NTN testing is tomorrow.

    How is everyone fairing on their overall scores? If anyone is wondering how to combine their HR and mechanical scores in to your overall score take your HR score and multiply it by .7 and take your mechanical score and multiply it by .3 and then add those two scores together.

    I wonder when the department is going to get back to us to see what the next step is?

    check the job bulletin on the Long Beach Fire website. It has all the steps of the process. The application and test were phase 1 to create an eligibility list and Phase 2 is the review and selection process. Doesn't really have dates but it does say, "It is anticipated that the academy will begin late spring/early summer 2014."

    Good luck!

    Just looked at the LBFD powerpoint, Math scores will NOT be considered, its only based on your HR, Mechanical and Reading scores to determine what band you end up in.

    As a retiree from Long Beach Fire let me say that the process is long and I know it's hard to sit back and wait. I still have contacts with the Department and if there's any questions I can answer and settle your frustrations let me know. I wish you good luck as it's a great department to work for. I was with them over 26 years and enjoyed ever minute of my stay.

    Band B with a band score of 70. Anyone know that the band score means? Is that how many people in that band or the cut off?

    That's my question as well. I was thinking it meant I was ranked 78 out of however many people were in the band, but based on some of the other responses that doesn't quite seem to be the case. Can anyone shed some more light on what exactly the bands and band scores mean, at least as far as moving on to the next step?
