For your information, I just heard about NYPD free walk-in exam being held Nov. 20 on UMASS at 11:00A.M. Mc Cormack Building.
Yes, this exam is hiring. Every exam they give, whether you go to NY or take it here is the same thing. Going to NY is not going to give you an advantage over taking the exam here. The sooner you take the test the faster the process begins and you could get into the July 05 class. Every exam NYPD gives has a number which means the sooner you take the test the quicker your exam number will be submitted for selection. From what NYPD told me they hire twice a year, in Jan and July. The academy is 6 months+ long. No, you don't have to pre register, just show up early to get a seat.Billy5715 @ Thu 11 Nov said:The exam at UMASS is it the sameone that NYPD is having in FEB in New York City. I am just curious this is the hiring exam right? Also does anyone know how long there acadmey is? Any more details on the UMASS exam please let me know I was going to take the test in NYC in Feb but if it is coming here thats a lot better tehn having to go there. Also Do you have to pre-register for the UMASS exam? Any info let me know...Thanks so much....
