Ok so here's the deal, I have always planned on attending the local police academy in July of 2006, that is when my Associates will be wrapped up. However, lately I have heard about the part time academy which begins in January of 2006 and runs a full year instead of six months. The normal one is Monday-Friday 8 am-5:30 pm and the part time is Tuesday and Thursday nights 6 pm -10 pm and all day Saturdays. This would greatly beneft my schedule and also my finances since it would allow me to work part time also. Being that I am not interested in applying for a trainee position with local agencies because I am not interested in working where I live. Once I graduate the academy I plan to move back down to San Diego county and apply at agencies located down there. My question is that will attending a part time academy make me look bad. I know that the full time academy students completely hate the part time guys because they complain that the part time training is better, however, I am interested in the certificate itself, not what the guys in the academy think of me as a person. So all that matters to me is looking just as good in the hiring process with an associates degree, a two year long internship at my local PD, and a part time academy certificate. Will this happen or will I be put below full timers?
No announcement yet.
