    Sorry to hear that. Will you be able to test again next round of testing?

    Yes, veteran and bilingual points are the only preference points available. As for the testing process it is a first come-first serve basis. However if you do not get a testing spot you can still put in for a walk in testing spot. Sometimes there a multiple walk in spots open and some days there aren't any. The good thing is you can go as many times as you need until you get to test. Hope that helps.

    I'm assuming not , the list of disqualfiers clearly states an assault "ever". I will call recruiting when I get a chance to be sure though.

    The last I heard at the 2nd cpat practice was there is a tentative academy date the 2nd week of September. The backgrounds should be completed by the end of July and they should have the eligible register by early August. That would mean that conditional offers would have to be made around the 3rdbackgrounds week of August.

    I have never received a call from them but maybe they are using other sources to help speed up the background process. There is still alot to do if they are going to have an academy start in early September. Have you already spoken with a background investigator previously?

    I got a call from the Denver Civil Service investigators but missed the call. She wanted to set up a time for an interview. I tried calling back but so far no response. I also got an e-mail with an updated rank from Jeff Wilson today.

    You're right, I have an interview date with a background investigator. Up until now I have not spoken with one.

    I wish I got an email with my rank! Did you send an email asking or did they proactively send the email? If you don't mind me asking what is your rank?

    They are contacting people listed on the background forms as well, so things are progressing. I assume we should start hearing something new pretty soon with the final CPAT this weekend.

    Pretty much the same info that has been given here already. Once class in Sept with 20 spots. About 6 to 8 will be from the cadet program. The rest will be from our group. If you are in the top 20 ranking, it sounds like you will be considered for the Sept class. After that about three classes next year with 20 per class. They expect the hiring trend to continue till about 2017 from the sounds of things.

    Maybe a bit off topic but does anyone have an estimate on how many they take through the review process per position? Like if theres 1 opening do they move just 1 or 2 people

    I am not really sure but I do not think it is a 2 to 1 ratio. My best guess is that they will have a few extras as back ups but that many.

    Does yours say background report received? The last I heard from Mr. Wilson was the commission will be approving the eligible register at the next commission meeting on 07/18/2014. Hopefully the list will be certified not long after that. If they want to start an academy around the second week of September things will need to start moving pretty fast after the list is approved.

    Yep, that would be the update.

    I have not talked to Mr. Wilson, so that's good to know, thank you. Nice to have some sort of hazy finish line or checkpoint. But yes, tight fit, sending out notifications and doing scheduling the third or fourth week of July. With a possible interview squeezed in between now and the medicals/drug tests, mid-September might be optimistic.

    Thanks for the update. That's what mine is saying as well. I was wondering what the timeframe for hearing anything was. Good to know.

    Received my CPAT completion certificate in the mail yesterday. I wasn't expecting that and got excited when I got an "official" letter from Denver. Here's to hoping we hear something soon ;-)
