      Looking to connect with anyone who is currently going through the Central Division process. I've been told this division moves pretty slow due to its size and I'm definitely starting to feel the slow-down. Let me know if any of you are experiencing the same.

          Also, my BI had informed me that after speaking with CHU very recently that there were still spots open for the December class. Not sure if there is a disconnect somewhere or if someone knows otherwise?

            Hey MISSION-CHP, where did you do your psych interview? Was it in Sacramento at CalHR?

            Hey CHPCadet,

            Yes, the medical is basically like a physical. They do some mobility, they check your heart rate resting and recovery (you have to do a 1 min exercise like jumping jacks to get your HR up). You give a urine sample and they take about 3 viles of your blood. At the end, you get interviewed by a Dr. about your medical history.

          I called the CHU a few days ago and was informed I have cleared psych, so now I wait to see about either December or the following academy! I’m pumped and ready to go! Hope to see all or some soon here!!

            Wow!!! Congrats to you!!! I took my psych oral 10 days before you did. Called CHU this Monday (4 weeks after my Psych Oral) and they still didn't have my results. Starting to get a bit worried. Still playing the waiting game along with other applicants here. Has your status changed on the CHP website? Super excited for you!!! Congrats once again!

            My status has not changed online, still states passed background investigation which happened a few months ago! The CHU was fairly vague about academy, I didn’t poke much to find out info but she told me to be waiting for an email and stated an officer is “working on the December class” so I’d say I still have hope for December academy but who knows!!! Either way I am pumped for the next step! Maybe I’ll be seeing you for our first day of academy! Out of curiosity which division are you going through?

            I called this Friday and was given false hope. Tina (CHU) advised me that if all goes well I'm most likely looking to be in the next academy class which will most likely be in March. I can surely use that extra time.

            I applied with the Golden Gate Division (GGD) but got transferred out to Valley Division (VD). Did the PAT and Written Test in the GGD and the rest was done at the VD. If everything goes good with this Psych Interview we may end up in the same class!!!

            Well that’s good! Hopefully you get all cleared and yes we may end up together!! I’ll post up on here if I get word of anything different! Good luck to you! And I was almost the same as you but did my pat and written with coastal division then transferred to valley division for the rest!

        • Hi Everyone,

          I’ve currently completed everything up to the BIQ/Orientation step in the process which has been done since June of this year and currently waiting for my initial interview. I’m becoming very hesitant to call or email my BI just to get a status update because I’ve been told that my process is taking a little longer than others I know who have gone through this process in the very same division and office.

          I know patience is very important, but I just want to know if anyone has called their BI mid-process for a status update. Is this frowned upon?

          Heres what I’ve done so far—

            I can tell you coming from central that they have a high volume of cases they are working. They are not ignoring you. It can take quite some time before they get to you because of the cases and the detail that goes with doing them.

        • Specifically For all those who are awaiting the December academy (and everyone else too) what are some topics/material you’re using to study and how are you preparing for the academy. I wonder if I’m missing out some sort of preparation that I haven’t thought of. Thank you guys!

            do you know if Border Division Backgrounds/Recruitment hosts seminars for those applicants getting ready to go the academy? At a minimum you should be studying the Cadet SOP and the aural brevity codes and going to the APP workouts.

          • Just finished my psych oral. Lasted 1 hour and we went over everything. He did a lot of writing. I felt like my answers we're good and overall it went ok but man you just never know. Left feeling confident, now I'm very nervous! Did anyone's psych talk to them about the academy? Is that standard? Was my interview length a bad sign? I'm crapping bricks.

                And you passed? I got asked to clarify my responses on a free questions. Did you have that? Kind of over analyzing this buy there's so much on the line!

                Yeah I got into the December academy. And I was asked to clarify a few things. Not everything is necessarily a good or bad thing because all doctors work in their own way so it’s hard to say for certain what is good or bad or right or wrong.

                Yeah see I didn't really get anything negative from my doc. I think it bothers me more that I couldn't get a read on him. I got the occasional smile and all but nothing past that. We had decent chatter in the elevator ride to and from the interview room though. Guess I will have to appeal if I fail it.

                    I took my pellet-b in March and had my BI Interview on October 25, submitted my BIQ on November 2 and now I have my CVSA on November 9 in Vallejo. Be patient because when they contact you it will come at you fast. Hope this helps.
