    On the same note... Yesterday, I heard 3 more names of guys who are retiring very soon... one officer and 2 investigators. Even if we get 230 recruits in the next year, I don't see the road manning changing very much.

              • How much time do they allow between the different exercises in the PT test and in which order are they performed?

                  If you know the Cooper Standard you have to attain to graduate, you should push yourself to do those three excercises back to back with no rest so you can perform even better if you are given a short break during the test.

                      Usually the order is sit-ups, pushups, then run. You will have time to rest in between each. There is no set time, it will depend how many people are at that stage in the processing. If you are in good shape you will not have any problems as far as rest.

                      • Upcoming PAT Test

                        I recently received the letter for PAT testing on the 11th. This could not have come at a worse time for me. In October I was hit by a car while I was working, this left me unable to work and do physical activity for 3 months, causing me to put on 25 pounds. When I received the letter I started to train the best I could, it is now 4 days before the PAT test and I know I cannot pass sit-ups and maybe the 1.5 mile run. 3 more weeks and I would be fine. My question for you guys, should I show up knowing I cannot pass or should I call and see if I can do the test at a later date? Or, should I just forget about the whole thing? (Don't want to) I am 32 so this is my only chance. Thank you for any suggestions.

                        • My opinion and Im not a trooper nor do i work for the division: Absolutely call the recruiter listed in the email you should have got and talk to him about it. Not doing anything makes it look like you did not want it or that you were too lazy to get into shape. Again, this is only my opinion and is what I would do.

                            If you know for a fact you can't pass the PAT you should call and speak to a recruiter. Perhaps they will give you a deferment based on your medical situation, I dont know for sure. However, if you think you can push yourself, do it. All you have to do is pass, then you'll have a couple months to get into shape before the academy.

                            • I'd say try, then give it your all..........Their is no guarantee you will get called again. Also, I know people who were called back after failing the pt test and given another shot.

                                Did you take the 2008 Exam? In order to even get through the process you have to have taken and scored on the exam prior to turning 30. Civilians are ineligible to take the exam past age 30. Active servicemen and women can get a credit of up to 6 years for service (read you can be 36 and still take the exam with your service time credits assuming you have six years of active service). After that you are SOL.
                                If I read your post correctly, you deferred your 2008 exam and didn't attend an alternate military test date between now and then. The 2008 exam yielded something in the range of 19k candidates and they will continue to use that list till they get through about 10k people. The previous (and last class to go through since 2008) used approximately 40 (FOURTY) canditates from the 2008 list. In order for NYS to get 40 candidates from the eligible list they probably processed in the neighborhood of 400 people. They get like 1 recruit from every 10 people processed. If they give a new exam in the next two years you have a shot. I don't have any concept of how long they intend to extend the current eligible list but there are still a great deal of eligible candidates left to process for these two classes. That being said, the probability of a new exam and eligible list being established within the next two years is bleak.

                                I'm not trying to trash your dreams, but there are some obstacles in your way here to attain employment with NYSP. I would strongly urge you to consider towns and municipalities for employment as they cycle much faster than NYSP does. Start taking tests ASAP, investigate your municipal and county civil service departments.

                                Good Luck!
