    Gym in the NYPD academy is a 2 1/2 hr block but the last 1/2 hr is for changing/showering. Id say its a safe bet with all the times we were out of the building and doing other things that we averaged gym 3 days a week.

    For that 3 day average id say 75% of the time you had to run/cal for an hour and then do an hour of tactics. Toward the end of the academy it was more like 2 hours of tactics and no more working out.

    Most of the people in my company have talked about it and we felt that there wasnt enough tactics and PT in the academy. It was too infrequent. It should be every day, 5 days a week. Unfortunately because you leave the building so much and have so many workshops its damn near impossible.

    Yes, I know. It seems like state police agencies are much harder to get into in general.

    Yes, that is true. It seems like it all balances out in the end, one department has something very attractive, the other has something else that is very attractive.

    Whats funny about that video is that about one quarter of those recruits are us marines and are trying really hard not to laugh and because of that they are going to be the ones that get messed with pretty hard. They need better lessons in being drill instructors or whatever they call the officers in smokey bear covers.

    go down to the middle of the page until you see the video session and click on the tittle "194th session video", now the NYPD academy is not as hard as the NYSP academy.

    Basically 4 exams, but with justification which noone fails, so its TRULY 5 exams.

    Not counting PT exams as Norwich stated.

    The quizzes mean squat, its just meant to see what area of the academics you have trouble in. If you score 80's 90's and 100's, you are pretty much OK. Lots of people said that the quizzes were harder than the actual exams.

    I thought the exams were pretty easy.
