I heard from a reliable source that the DOC is hiring another 75 guys for an academy real soon. Anyone hear able to verify this? I was told the cards are going out within a week. Here is another question hopefully someone can answer. I went through the PT, MED and Physc Tests back in September and passed all of them. I didn't get called cause they didn't go far enough down on the list, is this stuff that I passed still valid?
Its my understanding that those that went through the screening process last time are SOL and will have to repeat everything because it is DOC's policy that the screening process cannot be done longer than 6 months before a training academy. The good news is that DOC has changed the way the do the screening process which is going to be much more consolidated with fewer trips to Shirley. Good luck to all who decide to apply.
You do sign the list saying that you will accept employment. Fill out a Criminal Record check form and pick up your application and receive directions on what to do with it. The PAT is a timed 1 1/2 mile run, push ups, and sit ups. The guidelines are set by age.
