  • How long?

    How long did you wait from the conditional offer to the academy?

  • #2
    Whew, I saw "How Long" and almost had to be honest!!!

    I was offered the job and started the academy the next week.. but I just got lucky and it was timed perfectly with the County's academy (I am in a small agency without its own academy).

    Oh, you meant conditional? That means it's CONDITIONAL that you pass all the phases.... for me, it took about 2 months, but YMMV, with my first police gig it was a year and a half process.

The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

          Damn why so long? That's about the timeframe I am looking unless the Army approves a waiver for early contractural release from an ADSO for a move at the end of August.

            Only about three or four weeks. They moved fast.

              Because with my agency they offer a conditional after you pass the written and oral. Then you have the remaining steps to complete before appointment to the academy. All told it was about 10 months after the oral to appointment

                After my conditional I still had to pass the Background, medical, and psych, I believe.

                  For me it was like 6 months, and that was fast. My agency gives you a Conditional Offer after you pass the written, physical agility and preliminary personal history. You are then given a "Conditional Offer of Employment". You may then be hired if you pass the BI, psych, med, poly. AND they select you from the other qualified applicants. Pretty much all it means is that you have met the bare minimum requirements to continue in the process.

                      About 4 months, we got a conditional after passing the PT test, oral board, and written test.
