    Sign my conditional offer of employment and took the written psy test yesterday. Took me a little over 2 hours. Then I was scheduled with the actual doc. That exam is Tuesday and after that, I have to call my BI and find out if I passed or not. If I pass, I take the medical exam on the 17th (which I should pass, because I'm not sick ) Once those results are in I have to sit around until March 15th which is orientation and uniform fitting for the academy.

    Keep your head up...I started applying to departments in August of 2004. The waiting is frustrating as hell, but you just gotta keep at it...Good Luck!

    Florida certified with 10 years experience. I took the PAT in November, 2005. I passed and haven't heard anything other than a letter which confirmed passing and indicating that I was on an eligibility list.

    I know they receive tons of applications, but this is ridiculous.
    its a great question...as you probably already read..i took my PAT in OCT 2004 and didn't get scheduled for anything until FEB 2005 and now I'm in the waiting process some more...

    From the people that I've talked to, recently it is about 18 months from start until offer...

    this is good news...i was actually going to email my BI this afternoon asking questions about this...it appears i'll just wait until the end of this month to see what happens

    that ok with me...if they want to hire me and pay me and train me thats cool..

    Ideally, I would like work in Manatee county and not one agency in the county will sponsor.

    So now my options will be expanded.

    I haven't heard anything, but on Friday I was accepted to the LE Academy at HCC. It starts on FEB. 27. I'm pretty excited. This was my backup plan and so far it seems like that is the plan that I'm going to put in to action.

    Gomets I recieved the same message from my BI, after I e-mailed her. Good luck on the next selection. I'll be checking this thread regularly next month. To bad the thread on the other board was locked. It was nice to hear from more people in the running. It seems as though they close threads regularly over there. Oh well, good luck.

    Good luck next month.
    I emailed my BI on Friday with my bi-weekly check-in on how things were going. She responded via email. At least there is another selection next week. I really wish I hadn't got that speeding ticket last month as my friend just got hired by Tallahassee PD. oh well, life goes on...
