        It might not be updated untill the day after they hand out applications.
        Kinda like the information we get at roll call.
        If you don't find the info, chances are that it will be November 1st.

            I believe I took the written in May. And my backround investigator started the investigation TODAY. My room mate says the longest waiting period is now over. he is CCDOC. So its a lot quicker than cpd!

              Are you sure on the date? I took the written last Jan I believe. Have they had another since? I failed because it was my first test but not I got a ton of experience and will pass no prob.

                Your roomate is wrong. After your background investigation is complete and you get certified there's additional testing that needs to be done, power test, poly test, and phych test. That's only if you got juice to get called up for further testing. I was certified back in Sep 06 and never got the call, I tried pretty much everything that I could to get called up... My certification expires tomorrow.

                  Not everyone takes the written test on the same day.

                    I was certified in January of 2007, which means my time is running out. I guess I will be waiting in line again in November.

                      Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong but there has been so much money wasted on overtime and staff shortage that they might finally start hiring. Usually most of my post on the weekends are people working overtime from other shifts.

                          That's how it used to be, but now with the new testing requirements after you get certified it's taking longer. If you have juice maybe it will be the same for you...

                            Have you done any of the new testing requirements? If so I think you might be okay... I don't know maybe ask Rolt.

                              I have not completed any of the new testing requirements. I have a friend who was certified in July of 2008 and has already been contacted for further testing.
