    I finished my emt class at the end of january and was already scheduled for the national registry test the 1st week of feb. Your school should let you know as time gets closer what and how to do it. Usually the head of the program has to approve you to be able to take the test. Should only take a couple days after your skills testing and you pass the class. good luck

    I did that group background "investigation" jumbalya a week ago tomorrow. Hope everything goes well. I haven't done a single thing in my life worthy of raising investigative interest, so I may have the cards in my favor for this part. Fingers crossed!

    I think we are on the same timeline. I went to the Dec. 18th BI also. Let's keep in contact so we know if things progress for one or both of us.



    Also, CONGRATS!!! Bica 2422, continued good luck. Great Job!

    DM1438-

    Everyone that passes their interveiw with a 70 or above (please correct me if I am wrong, it could be 75-80) is on the hiring list, of course they will never go down that far on the list. You move on in the process if you recieve a 95 or better on your interview. Once you get to the Intial panel review they then choose the most desired canidates and move them on in the process and check out their background packets. One can here back within a matter of weeks others it can be up to 11 months. It just depends on what kind of qualifications that canidate has.

    Is the background investigator assigned to you the same person from the preliminary background interview?

    No, you will be assigned a different background investigator.

    The medical consists of blood work, urine sample, eye exam and also color blind exam, an ekg of a resting heartbeat, blood pressure, hearing exam. Then the doctor comes in a checks you out. Its a typical annual exam. You will also be taking your psy exams the same day you take have your medical.

    No unfortunately. My background investigator just turned in my paperwork for the final panel the other day. So I probably still have a month to hear from the final panel. So we'll see... like I said though.. I think I am on track for the April academy. Fingers crossed everything goes well.

    Congrats bica on getting your call. Did you get two separate letters, one from Medical and one from Psyche or was it one letter? What did the Medical say? Thanks

    Hey BICA, that's great!

    I've still yet to hear from final panel review...background completed October 16th.

    Hopefully I'm in line for the April Tower as I would think the time is getting a little short for February.

    I know a few guy stated that they waited up to four months for panel review so I'm anxiously waiting to hear. No news is good news I guess?!?

    By the way, how was the psych? Any advice?

    Congratulations again.

    Thumbs up psych test

    psych test was just long. about 3.5 hours for me... nothing tricky on it at all. it is not designed to be tricky. just a little bit above 1000 true/false questions. here is a website that gives you the first 75 questions and gives you a good idea on the rest of the test.

    https://antipolygraph.org/cgi-bin/fo...=1109032158/34

    scroll a little bit down the page and you will see the questions.

    good luck. keep us informed.
