    Hey all,

    I am currently an auxiliary in a town north of Boston, and I'm looking to take the next step and attend a r/i academy. The closest one is Reading and on the mass.gov website Reading states they run an academy from 8:30am-3:00pm from September 8th - Feb 2nd. Does anyone know what days the academy meets, seems like a pretty long academy for a r/i to fun from Sept to Feb.

    Depending on the academy they can do the bare 120 hours, OR as many hours as they want. Back in the day when I went to the RI academy it was 6 months, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-10 P and Sat 8-4..

    That doesn't sound like an R/I academy to me. Most of them run at night. I could be wrong though...

    Reading runs for 18 weeks IIRC.

    Saturdays from 0830 to 1500 (6 hours a day with a 1/2 hour lunch break), with evening classes (I forget what time - maybe 1830 to 2130 on Tuesdays and Thursdays) one week a month for two months.

    First Responder runs at the same time on Wednesdays. You might want to check your dates - I've never heard of them starting a Reserve Academy on a Monday.

    I just finished up the Reading R/I Academy on 2/14. I believe one of the instructors mentioned that a new class would be coming in immediately after we were done so I'm guessing the next one starts 2/21/09.

    I really enjoyed it and learned a lot. We had a great group of instructors that really made sure everyone knew what they were doing. I highly recommend it to anyone out there who can get sponsored.

    Sbck08 Did you get sponsored or sent by a department? Also do you know if the next class will start on 2/21/09 for sure? Is it to late for me to try to get sponsor by a department?

    I know they are filling an academy to start very soon. Go on the the mptc website and call Larry Norman to find out if you can still get in. I just graduated on the 14th and I highly recommend this academy.
