    I don't know how much it costs per recruit, but out of pocket I spent over 6,000 of my own money for the CPD Academy!

      So did you enroll before being hired, or did you have to pay anyway?

            Thanks so much for your insight. I'll have to do the best I can preparing for the exam. I wish I could get some good study material.

              You could be an idiot and pass that exam (trust me, I graduated from PTI w/ a few who have proven the truthfulness of that statement).

              Also, I believe a passing score is actually 68% and most of the test is common sense. Sure, there are some technical questions with regard to statutes that are specific to Illinois (and pray you don't get a test booklet loaded w/ Hazmat questions!).

              For the most part, however, you should be good to go if you already have experience w/ case law that applies everywhere (e.g., tennessee vs. garner; arizona vs. gant, etc.) and if you just use common sense.

              If you have any more questions, pm me - I've graduated from an IL p/t academy and also PTI (12 week, not the 80 hr transitional) and as a result, I've taken that test twice (and passed both times w/o putting much time into studying for either).

                Is the part time tests the same tests that the full timers take ?

                  Same Certification Test. There are a few different versions, but P/T and F/T take the test.

                      You will get instruction during the academy on hazmat. And then you will be tested on that material.
