    Yes sir

    • I had the pleasure of becoming good friends with scvmg after recruiting him to a local crossfit gym and doing workouts with him. If I may suggest, join a crossfit gym to prepare yourself for the academy. It is indeed expensive, but after 8 months of crossfitting, I took a physical agility test with PRs and had plenty of energy left to spare for a round 2 if necessary.

        I have my PAT on the 19th.

        It seems as though not too many people are testing. Is riverside still hiring a lot?
        Congrats on passing. I think they schedule only a certain amount of people for each test. They have multiple locations for the tests. When I took it, there was only like 40 seats in the room. A friend of mine is taking his test and if he passes they are doing the PAT right after.

          • Still waiting, waiting, waiting...hearing nothing makes it even more difficult to be patient. I wish we at least knew more concrete information and not just "maybes" as far as offers, academy dates, etc....

                  Do dress decently... I wore a collard shirt, tie, slacks and polished up the shoes. They went through each room in my house, so I made sure each was cleaned up neat as possible the day before and that morning again. they will go over the academy stuff, talk to any spouses, what to expect from this point on, and just to be completely prepared (physically and mentally) for the time the call comes in. I asked about time for jail service to patrol school, the first day at the academy (which I got a fairly good laugh from), the housing on campus thing, how to move up in rank with time, retirement, etc. It is a casual meeting, but don't get too casual or stiff, you still want to make a good impression.

                    Thanks for the info scvmg. What was it about the first day at the academy?

                          How did you do at the PAT? There wasnt any oral board, just the background interview, poly, psych, medical, PAT 2 and home visit for my process.

                            Everything went great.

                            There was a lot more people than I expected. Right around 500 easily

                              just a few people then but that does sound about right, maybe 300 at mine though, broken into 3 groups. Quite a few didn't qualify on the pu's and su's.

                              Now the fun stuff starts, but it goes quickly. RSO doesn't mess around with the testing.

                              • Well, I have my home visit tomorrow morning. I will see how that goes and what they tell me. Hopefully they have a little bit more information about a timetable and things of that sort. I will let you know if I have any updates of interest to you scvmg
