Rob in Portland, Oregon said: Yep, hopefully us PIEs get rolled over to PFT relatively soon.

When I spoke to the analyst she said as PI they pretty much work you in full time capacity. She also said it's their goal to roll all PI over to PFT asap.

Yeah, that's the same thing she told me. She even said it was possible to roll over in the academy. My family member in HDSP seems to think ill get rolled over almost immediately.

Does anyone know how long the PEM is good for once you pass? Does it need to be retaken like the oral POPE?

Yeah the PEM Is only good for a year after you pass, just like both components of the psych.

After you do your PEM, how long do we wait to hear from someone?

I got an email from my analyst about 2 weeks after. It didn't specify any results, just said if I had any questions or concerns to contact them. I gave it 2 weeks, then sent an email asking if and when I would be notified of the results. After another 2 weeks without a response, I called and left a voicemail. Later that same day I got the phone call with a job offer.

gamboa in El Paso, Texas said: Has anyone been offered a YCO or a YCC position???

I haven't heard of anyone getting picked up for YCO or YCC yet. I applied in 2011 and I've only just now completed all of the selection components for YCC. I am currently waiting to hear if I've made the certification list.

I'm glad for all of these CO candidates that there are a few CO academies in the pipeline; however, I bummed out that the youth correctional academy appears to be a lower priority or possibly not on offer at all.

I went to a uniform supply store, they had everything in stock. It did take them two days to hem the legs up and sow on patches though. I wouldn't wait any longer than monday in case they have to order your size. The only thing I'm not sure about is if we need a seasonal coat.

Hi hopeful,

I am a female and I recently completed the pre-employment medical about a month ago in SoCal. I did have to dress in a medical robe; but, I did NOT have to disrobe at any time and they did not perform a rectal or genital exam. I can only speak to my experience have no idea if different medical centers do things differently.

Oh....and to be specific, I am an applicant for YCC. I don't know if CO candidates have a different examination or not. I had to pass the same written, physical agility and POPE exams like the COs, so I imagine that the medical would be the same as well.

My app was for ycc, yco, and co. I am a male, but I did get a big ol finger up the backside as well as a genital exam.

Thank you for that. I spoke with a female that went through a 2010 academy. According to her she had to open her robe from the front so the doctor could see her and he bent down to check her sex. She said he had her bend forward on the bed and she got the back door checked. Then k read on here there were others that mentioned similar medicals. Just wondering what I could be getting into ...lol..

Anyone who did the pft got any tips for passing it? I know they test you around week 1 of the academy and around week 14. I'm gonna be running over the next 5 weeks, but is there anything special that worked for you?

Just run at comfortable pace so u have some strength to get through the weights at the end. The first run is to see where u at conditioning whise, the one at the end is pass or fail, its not very difficult and they have a track onsite to run on after training

Thanks, im pretty worried about the whole thing. The weights I dont think will be a problem, as 45x2 pounds isnt a lot compared to my frame (7 ft 345 lbs), the whole running thing is my worry. Right now im doing the 1500 yards in like 2 1/2 minutes comfortably (on a straightaway). Hopefully adding stairs/obstacle course doesnt slow me down too much. I guess I have approximately 20 weeks to improve my time anyways before I take my final pftt; maybe they will have mercy on me lol.

Just remember not to over do it and end up being one of the ones who get injured. You will have plenty of time to prepare yourself before the final run. Like c/o in Fresno said, don't burn all your energy...keep a steady pace and you'll do fine. Have someone on side lines time you and when you get to weights have them let you know how much time is left. I passed the first time with little effort, the second time I cut almost 2 minutes off. It's really hard to fail, the ones who do are because they didn't put in a real effort to apply themselves. Good luck, glad to see there running academies again...we're short staffed and the cons/inmates are getting worse with assaults! Welcome to the team!

Thanks for the encouragement, I'm pretty excited to be apart of cdcr. It's been a wild ride and the worst hasn't even begun yet.

To anyone who got the June academy, did you guys receive your emails yet confirming your appointment?

Written/Written psych
Physical/Vision/Fingerprints
Background interview
medical/Mask fitting
Psych interview

well unless they are processing people differently, then dont call. But most of us got a date and time on the intial email for the PFT. It said IF you pass the PFT, you will then show up on XXXX to take the written exam at whatever time they assigned you to

hope that makes sense?? lol

What doesn't make sense is the way they are doing it...it should all be the same and not some a certain way and others a different way...I guess it all depends where you tested?
