    Thanks!

    • I just recently was notified that I cleared psych, but am waiting for a hiring committee decision regarding a shoulder injury from a few years back. Any insight on possible outcomes?

        "Any insight on possible outcomes?"

        a) they let you
        b) they don't let you in

        Did you fail any portion of the medical?

        Ok thats good to know. And no I did not fail any portion of the medical.

    • Hey guys, been using this forum thread for a while and I figured to join in and post my timeline on the thread.
      My process hasn’t been as ‘linear’ as other people’s. My BI wanted me to do the fingerscans, psych written and among other things done by that first meeting.

      I called CalHR two weeks after my psych interview to see if I cleared the psych exam and I did. For those who cleared the medical and psych, I was told by CalHR that they’re going send out the invitations for the Dec. academy within 60 days of Sept. 1st.

      Best of luck to all of you guys who’re in the process.

        congratulations on successfully completing the hiring process (up to the academy). have you been going to the golden gate division APPs? they are great at helping you prepare for the academy as the officers/sergeant who run it put applicants through an academy type workout and hold applicants to the standards and expectations cadets are held to throughout.

        @GGD: Thank you. I have not been to those APPs. I heard about them through my BI and she gave me dates for the June one but not for the remainder of the year.

        @Etor: I forgot to ask but someone else in the forum stated that the dates are from Dec. 4th to June 14th.

        One question for those who have gotten through psych, how log did you wait for a call from the doctor to schedule your interview? I’m really hoping to get this all finished up and get an invite for December but we’ll see what happens!

        Also, anyone from valley division on here planning on attending the APP anytime soon?

      • Anyone who’s cleared everything and just waiting for an invite can you comment just so we can start a list of those expected and hoping to get in for the December academy.

        Btw has anyone called CHU recently and was given a start date for the December academy? It’s killing me to know already lol

        also, is anyone out of southern division?

        • Hey Everyone, been following this page for a while and have obtained such good information out of it. Thanks to all of you. It is much appreciated. I figured its time to share my timeline. 1st time posting. Here we go...

          Psych Oral: TBD
          Academy Invite: TBD

          Im not going to lie, im a bit worried about the Psych Oral. I received an email from CalHRPSP which stated that they wanted additional information regarding past visits to the Psychologist. Has this happened to anyone else? I've had to visit a Psychologist in the past due to work related incidents. Its just a standard protocol that they have here with my current employer.

          Any recommendations as to what exercises should I be focusing on to prepare for the academy? I lack in upper body strength. Im scared that I may not be physically prepared for the academy. I work, at times, 15 hour days which leaves me hardly any time to work out. Aside from the fact that I commute to work 1:15 everyday. This is no excuse but it surely doesnt help me much. Im still staying positive and will be working on myself physically speaking as time becomes available. Any help, advice, recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

            Whatever they request just turn over everything to them. After a while they’ll contact you with a psych interview. They also wanted me to turn in additional information too so at my interview when that stuff came up he kinda focused on that dug deep on that. Once they feel they got what they need they move on. I ended up clearing and passing. Explain what it was why you went and what happened. You should be fine. Just be honest.

            If I were you I would start doing sit ups, push ups, squats, whenever you get a chance. Like on a day off or during a commercial break. Try to hit at least 100 of each of those a day. I know it may be tough given your schedule but being in shape before the academy allows one stressor to go away if you can handle the pt.

            I’m talking as if I’ve gone through it lol I’m still hopefully waiting a December invite but that’s just stuff I’ve been told by former cadets and officers.

            Hopefully that helps! Goodluck!

            Hey Etor91, sorry for the super late reply. I appreciate you taking your time to help out on this. Just received a call from CalHR for the Psych Oral for the 17th. YIKES!!!

            Been trying to follow your advice. Not the easiest thing to do but also not impossible. Been taking advantage of my short brakes and started doing those pushups and situps.

            How far along in the process are you? What division are you out from?

            Awesome! You still got enough time to hopefully get an invite to the December academy. Just be prepared to answer questions on whatever additional documents they requested. Also, not sure how long it’s been since your PHS stuff but try to refresh cause they’ll ask questions from your background packet and basically go over all of that. Just be honest. Good luck!

            I’ve already cleared everything and waiting on my invite to hopefully the December academy. I’m from the southern division.

          PSYCH EVALUATION: 08/21/2018


          All I’m waiting on is to hear if I passed my psych and medical evaluations. I had to take care of a couple of issues regarding the medical evaluation. The medical evaluation showed that I had 20/22 vision in both eyes, but had them rechecked by an optometrist and they were both 20/20. I also have degenerated disk changes in my lower back. So I had to get an MRI and be evaluated by a spine specialist. He said I would be ok to handle unrestricted activities including combat in the academy. So hopefully in the next couple of weeks I will find out if I passed both the psych and medical evaluations. So glad to have found this forum to hopefully get to know those who get into the CHP academy.


          Cheers

                Depending on where you are located, and how familiar with Sac you are, prepare for the drive. The interview itself is just a conversation about the info you’ve already provided and about yourself. Just be open and honest.

                I can't say for anyone else; I had to get an additional hearing test done because of the way mine was administered. I would estimate about a month though.

                - In terms of the written psych, does anyone know about how long the test(s) take?
                It depends on some of your answers, but I would say be prepared to be there for at least 3 hours if not 4.

                - How long did some of you wait to receive the call to schedule your psych oral?
                About a month after my written I was contacted to provide additional information prior to the oral psych being scheduled. Once provided, it was another two weeks or so until it was scheduled.

                Thanks for the responses @kevson!!

                I am hoping I can get through everything as quickly as possible to hopefully receive an invite to December academy. It does look like I may be just short as it seems most invites have gone out about 3 months prior to the start of academy.

                Anyone else in a similar situation?

                I made a call after the 6th week for my medical results.

                I was in there doing my Written Psych for 5 hours. Just like Kevson stated (it all depends on your answers and personal history)

                I was contacted 3 weeks after my Psych Written to also provide additional information. Just received a call this friday to get scheduled for my Psych Oral Interview on the 17th of this month. Hope this helps a bit. Good Luck!!!
