  • DPS testing

    i'm going to test with the dps this coming week. did they change the physical test to where it is non-competitive? a couple of weeks ago it was competitive but from reading the website it seems like it is just pass/fail.

        Just a suggestion bud. Depending on your age, that might be a good time

          i'm 35. i'm pretty pumped being where i am condition wise now. i was slap out of shape this fall. due to the process i'm in with the secret service i've lost over 40 lbs. i'm frustrated with the push ups. i have trouble getting more than 35. i used to be a 400 lb. bench presser and it sucks to have lost all my upper body strength.

            I went through the entire DPS hiring process and began the academy this March but tore a disc in my back the first week. The hiring process is faster than is use to be. The academy is tough, but the weigh Texas Troops shoulder is heavy so it needs to be. Upper body strength is a must. I hope to get back in there, but Dr says it won't be this year, but I do hear they are trying to have another academy this year but they are having a hard time finding qualified applicants.

            Good luck during the hiring process,

              pointblank-sorry to hear about the injury. that is a big concern for me. if i were to be selected it would be a huge leap of faith for me. i absolutely could not get hurt. i'm in education now and if i quit my job and the academy didn't work out i would be sol. will also be a huge cut in pay. sometimes you have to follow you heart though.

                After probation, there are many extra jobs to get that pay back. Injuries are no bueno, but the sacrifice is worth the reward. If you have any questions or concerns, you can pm me.

                  Just be mindful, no extra jobs until you're off probation...
