Platinum if your lookin for credits to get into NYPD or Corrections why dont you skip school and just take the FEMA courses on line.. it will only cost you 2500... to get all the credits you need. I have a degree but i took the fema courses anyway for later use in promotions.. If i passed those courses anyone can.

i got my canvas letter back in february 2008, and they just started calling people off the list im on.
you have about a 2 year minimum wait before they call you for training.
all the other stuff such as physicals, psycological, etc. they will get done over the next 6 months or so.

They are only good for one year. I just went for my second round about a month ago.

I'm not so sure about that.

I took mine in October of 2008 and was scheduled to take my psych soon after but was contacted by my investogator and told that everything was on a hold. Over a year later I was contacted by my investigator about the psych test. I took the written, then the interview. Just last week my investigator called me and told me that I had passed the psych and that I'm going to the academy May 9th. My medical is about 7 months over a year, and I never had to do it over again.

Wondering in Fredonia, New York

My husband took the test over two years ago, got his canvas letter back in February I think, went to Albany this week for testing, and is going back to Albany May 22 for his Psych eval. After all this, when is the soonest we can expect him to get into the academy? Is there any rhyme or reason for all this or is it all luck? because it seems like many people wait years and some don't wait long at all.

Trod: Thats so good to hear!! I have been waiting forever! I took the test back in 2007 and finally heard from them at the beginning of this year to begin the process-it was bc of the freeze NY state had going on...finally on the last step which is my one on one. I hope to be in by June the latest! Keeping my fingers crossed!

Angel: I got my medical clearence letter this week thats it.. as per my background im clean im not worried... Theres a class goin in in May.. so i dont think June will be the next i was told mid summer.. I was a bit intimidated by all the men when i took the written psych.. I think i was on that line with like 20 other females and 700 men lol.. i was like wthhhhhelll... The one on one psych is the closer.. the questions asked are based on how u answered the written.. as long as you dont say you will kill anyone who gets ur angry ur safe lolll Im just glad that physically i wont have a problem in the academy. i can easily run 6 miles in an hour.. Im very hopefull

Trod - I received my medical clearance about a month ago...I knew I was gonna pass that. I'm sure my background is good too, I was just curious cause I haven't heard anything from them about it. I'm just happy that they aren't making me wait to long for my one on one, I only had to wait 2 weeks from when I took the psych written, I'm going Sunday. Got my suit pressed and ready to go!! I just hope the academy is sooner than later.. Im on the edge of my seat itching to get in... finally gonna start something Ive been waiting for for years now!! Maybe we'll be in the same class if all goes well...who knows..

i never taken a psych test before so i dont know what expect of it.
How to answer the questions or how long it takes to take the psych exam. someone told me its over a thousand questions and it takes approx 6 hours is that true? please help me.

Angel921 in Yonkers, New York

The psych written consisted of 1500 multiple choice questions, most of which were the same question asked over and over again but in all different ways to see how you answer them. It does take a long time tho.. about 5-6 hours is correct... i recommend you not rush tho and read each question thoroughly. Then the psych one on one was just a psychologist asking a bunch of questions and comparing ur answers to those on the written. Good luck!

Now if someone can answer my question from the earlier post about the academy.. i would appreciate it... lol

Lol @ Angel.. why nerve wrecking lol.. my inv told me it takes a while for results so who the hell knows how long that process takes.. ill sleep on it.. when i get called i get called..

@ uniqnik.. that test is mostly about drugs.. i couldnt believe how many times they questioned that area... and yup it takes about that long depends how slow of a reader you are.. i started at 830 and was out by 11:30 and i took like a 20min break..
