    From what I understand its no and yes. No direct reimbursement, but your 2 years of trainee pay start in the academy.

    I may be wrong

      If you don't mind me asking, how bad is your vision?

Not too worried about that, looking forward to going through all the steps but its moving faster than I thought it would. Good luck to all trying to get on.
            Thats awsome...they gave you the date for the agility already? What was your score / rank on exam? when was your first med? I went up to albany last Tuesday and they had me do both meds in one shot and said that I would get a date for some time in Jan to go to the city for the agility...you just made my day, good to see its moving quick.

              Thanks, I decided to call OCA and asked them directly. Yes you are right we are getting paid during the academy, health benifits will take effect after 45 days. We will NOT get reimburst for the money we will put out for the Equiptment and Uniforms but will get uniform allowance at the end of the year.

                What district are you going to the academy for?

                  Thanks, I will keep you guys/gals posted. I heard that this is the last class for the 2005 exam.

                  Although my first choice was district 9, I was only offered for NYC. I'm hoping I could transfer to district 9 in the future when I get some seniority. Good Luck again to everyone.

                  • uniform deductible

                    Check with your accountant or tax preparer. I'm pretty sure you can deduct uniform and equipment so long as your job does not reimburse.

                    • P.S. I had Lasik done 3 1/2 weeks ago and passed the eye test last week. The healing period after Lasik is at least 2 weeks to 1 month. But I was seeing 20/15 within ten minutes of the procedure. My vision was blurry for about a day or so. I see halos at night, but they are going away.

                        I guess it's something we all need to be prepared for and save. I can't believe it costs that much.
                        Then there's room and board if you're in the Cohoes academy.

                            Congrats to both of you! Good luck in your new career!

                            Looking at both of your ranks and the rankings reached from the last exam, it looks like the numbers reached were only those canvassed. I think NYC reached 6,072 and both of you are around 4,000. Looks like my chances are slimmer in NYC since I'm in the mid 5,000 range, even with the increase in hiring. I may have to choose upstate NY.

                            • You do get a uniform allowance, I just forget exactly how much. I think it's about a grand a year, split into 2 checks-1 in June and 1 in December.

                                I scored 20/70 on each eye by itself.

                                When I saw my eye doc today she told me that my eyes are in good shape and actually not bad at all.
                                Hey,

                                What did OCA tell you after you failed the vision? Did they tell you to contact them if you got lasik? Did they offer you any options? Would like some input for those of us that don't think we'll pass the vision. Thanks.
