          Get ready for stress, lots of it. Idk how the academy is at colleges but if its anything like department run academies you will have a lot on your plate. I;m studying for an exam as I type this. I just started an academy about 6 weeks ago. Remember this is a team effort, watch over your classmates. If someone falls back in PT go and help them, if someone falls asleep in class wake them up lol we just learned that lesson the hard way. Form study groups. But regardless just never ever quit on anything you guys do and everything will be fine. Good luck

              Just keep in mind that you will get yelled at, and yelled at some more. Even if you are sure you did something 100% right, and you get yelled at for it, just take it and move on. Don't argue with the instructors. Keep a team mentality and always remember no one gets left behind.

              Also, even though you work out frequently, it is still going to be tough on your body because it almost never has time to fully recover. You will likely be switching off from PT/DT every other day. Just keep your head on your shoulders and you'll get through it.

                Attention to detail is everything. Keep your eyes and ears open and your mouth shut. Do what you're told, when you're told, and EXACTLY how you're told and you'll be fine. Good luck!

                  If and when you get yelled at your only replies should be, "No excuse, sir." "Won't happen again, sir." And make darn sure it doesn't happen again!

                        I am currently in this academy ... First few weeks are the toughest ...lots of pt mostly body weight stuff ... pushups/cherry pickers/body squats/bear crawls/crab walks/running in place/jumping jacks etc ... write your name on everything (*hint*) shine your boots early an often ... the more you shine them early the easier itll be later. you have to get a good layer on the boots before it starts taking a shine. full time does pt twice a day and part time does the first portion of class, then two hours on saturday.

                        you dont really need to get a head start on the book work, its fairly easy. most test are the objective. and check out rossy parker police academy study guide on line its $2 per month and they have practice quizzes

                        good luck

                          It is designed to weed out those who don't really want this job. If you were hired by a department and sent to the academy, you were the BEST of the best, remember that. There are 100+ folks who would kill to be where you are. Stay the course.
                          The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. 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.

                          that we are all that stands between
                          the monsters and the weak." - Michael Marks
