      One thing, make sure you answer ALL the vocabulary questions. I had a buddy bomb the test because he only answered 60 of them. after that, it's a personality test so be consistent.

        Where do I find the 11 codes? I did some work with LASD in the past and to my knowledge they did not have 11 codes.

        Also, what did the home visit consist of? What do they check? What do they talk to you about? What do they talk to your family about?

        Thanks for any info!
        Shadowbrd. Here is the BCTC academy study guide I found online that may help.

              The home visit was more casual than I thought, but dress with a shirt and tie (a piece of advice given to me from here). They just walk through the house and see if its cleaned and organized, speak with your wife (separately) about what to expect from how we are going to change and stress levels, and talk about the academy life and the career after. I found it very informative, and they gave me straight up answers about it, answered any questions. I am on the older side too, so they were explaining to me what paths I should consider, but were positive about my going in, and told me to keep the workouts up even more.
              scvmg, have you heard anything new/any updates? And did you see the studyguide Warrior09 posted? Looks really helpful

              • Nope, nothing yet. I did download the study guide warrior09 put up, has alot more info than the guide I received at PAT2 in July.

                  I applied a few years back but it was right when the dept had a budget crisis so I never made it through the process. I'm applying again soon.. Glad I could help you guys. Sounds like you guys are pretty close to victory. Good luck hopefully you will be in the next academy. Sounds like the next one is scheduled some time in March 2014.

                    the pdf booklet helped quite a bit, thanks for getting that.

                    hmmm March... plenty of time to get in shape then.

                    • I talked to my background investigator on Monday, and he said it looks like the next academy is probably going to be scheduled for March 17th.

                      scvmg did your background investigator tell you something different?

                        nothing as definitive as that set date, but more along the lines of maybe January or February, but it wasn't really anything to go on at all when I had my home visit the beginning of the month. I do remember back when I did the first PAT, on March 16 of this year, that there was an academy that had just started, beginning of March. Seems to be the normal planning pattern I guess. It is possible we could get picked up ahead of schedule and do office work before hand, I have heard of that happening....

                        • It's weird cause they also started one in June so it seemed like they were doing it every three months but did not start 192 until late October, 4 1/2 months later. I guess a March date would end up fitting with that 4 1/2 month time frame

                          I've also heard of the office work but don't know how often it happens or how likely it is

                            Yeah I got a lot of info off of it too. Knowing what's expected is a plus for when I do start the process.
                            There is a "Wellness" (PT) class that starts on the 26th of this month and another one in Jan. that end in march, perfect timing for the academy. It will be a good one to get into academy shape and/or stay in shape.

                            I was thinking about taking it and the Pre-Acamdey class. Seems like they will both be very helpful for testing and PT in the process as well as in the academy.

                              Your advice came very handy today. I tried to give myself enough time to answer each question. Somehow I had to cram the last 20 questions in less than 35 sec, so I had guess the last few. Luckily, I was able to answer the last question at the last second before I was booted out.

                              I have my PAT on the 19th.

                              It seems as though not too many people are testing. Is riverside still hiring a lot?

                              • they are still hiring, how many I dont know. the PAT will have quite a few people at it, just make sure you crank out the exercises in it well past the minimums with good form.
