    There will be no definite date for the academy until the very end of the process. A lot of times the date slips because of hurricanes....

    I went to the Academy last year at this time. Only 2 out of 11 did not finish. One dropped the first day and I failed to qualify in Firearms. Sometimes people get hurt and are bumped to the next academy if they are unable to preform the high liability areas. $ guys were dropped during FTO after the...

    My class had 27 start ( non sworn). Usually a handful of sworn guys join at breakout. PT is one a day but discipline sessions are more frequent. Figure that you will be doing some exercise 3 times a day for the first few weeks. Nothing on Saturday and Sunday. I was wiped out every evening after chow...

    Different topic but is everyone working on a fitness program? We had 3 people who showed up at the academy unable to do a sit up. I kid you not! The morning PT is CrossFit style high intensity workouts. Additionally, every time someone screws up, you will do sprints up and down a hill and push ups,...

    Excellent information from the General Orders. Almost anything else that you want to learn about is in the General Orders.

    I don’t think that the interview has very much to do with memorizing the website. It is more about your demeanor, motivation and character. Read the General Orders section on recruiting to understand the entire scoring process....

    The sworn guys may be getting contacted for positions in the next breakout. Non sworn may wait for a while as there is still plenty of time for the next academy class.

    If you guys want to understand more about the selection process (or FWC in general), read the General Orders. They are online and are a detailed description of the rules and regulations of FWC. There is a section on recruiting that explains how candidates are selected. Refer to this document for most...

    I wrote a similar reply a couple of days ago but I went to the academy last year. Originally I was informed that I didn’t make the cut (after the interview). 6 months later I got a call from Tallahassee asking if I was still interested. The process picked up from the background investigation. It took...

    I went to the academy a year ago and did not pass the interview initially. I got a call 6 months later inviting me to continue in process for the next academy. Not sure how common that is but several of the guys in my class had similar situations.
