    Does anyone know if you have 14 college credits will they let that slide and or do you have to provide them with paychecks showing that you worked six months full time or do they look into that for you?

    I heard that number but it was 60% of the promo's failed the medical. Hard to say on the open list there have only been 6 medical sessions.

    I even remember asking at least three people at recruitment and at the written test preps about it, and they seemed to think glasses were okay (if not ideal for the job, obviously).

    Im obviously interested in getting lasik, but not in the rushed circumstances that it would take considering my medical is probably a month or two away.

    Are you guys certain about this requirement? Where did you all see it?

    Thanks all,

    I just got my medical letter today and they said do not wear your contacts, but if you do bring a case to take them out-they won't let you do the eye portion with corrective lenses. I don't know what it takes to pass the vision test though, I haven't seen it officially written anywhere. I think their point is imagine putting on a mask over glasses or having smoke bother your contacts-they don't want it to be a factor.

    if your contacts are melting then your eyes and airway are melting. and you have got bigger problems than having to call up and get a refill on your contacts

    Odds are if your contacts are burning, thats the least of your concerns. You're probably going to be in a world of hurt.

    Thumbs down

    Just went in with a group of 16 for the medical. Only three passed everything and came out qualified. At least one didnt even finish the stairs. The guy there said out of a group our size, that on average, "maybe 5 or 6 would pass."

    Ouch.

    For anyone that took the medical, you go on the stepmill for 3 minutes no vest, then they give you a break 5 minutes(you relax have a cup of water), then you go back on the stepmill with the 50 pound vest on for another 5 minutes and your heartrate cannot exceed (220-age x .9)???? And all of this is done at 59 steps per minute????

    Then if you fail the heart rate you come back in 30 days to try again?? Then if you fail that you have to get some expensive special heart test done??? anyone know what that test is called??

    Also, anyone fail because they didnt meet the height and weight requirements?

    Thanks

    Thats it. If youre prepared, you wont break a sweat.

    Then if you fail the heart rate you come back in 30 days to try again?? Then if you fail that you have to get some expensive special heart test done??? anyone know what that test is called??
    I think its just a standard stress test. If it comes to this, you also have to come back to BHS, put the vest on, and get on the stairs for like 8 minutes without looking over-exerted.

    Also, anyone fail because they didnt meet the height and weight requirements?

    Thanks
    Everyone Ive seen that was overweight also failed the stairs. I guess its possible for someone to be turned away just for being too fat, but usually it comes along with something else qualitative.

    i hear everyone talking about the medical...is that all that is required of you on that day is to do the stepmill and keep your heart rate down or is there other tasks that you will have to do and pass..i guess my question is what is that day like?? and how long were you there for?

    The test you have to get done is a cardio stress test as SkylinePCG has stated. You have to get on a treadmill (most likely or a bike) with a 12 Lead EKG and walk on a treadmill. Every 3 minutes the treadmill increases speed and or incline. Depending on what type of test they run (the city makes you get) you will either go till exhaustion or till you reach a predetermined % of your max heart rate. When you reach that mark it is cross checked with the speed/incline of the treadmill to give you a Metts reading of your cardio endurance. The higher the number the better in shape you are and vice versa. Then when you finish the main part of the test they turn down the speed/incline and you walk on the treadmill till your heart rate goes below I think 100 (not exactly sure) and they measure that time. It tells them how quickly your heart returns to normal. This is the best test to measure your Heart and its strength.
    If you want to know more look up Cardio Stress Test most places use the Bruce Protocol if that helps.
