    Does anyone who has recently graduated from the SSPO Academy know what they allow for missed classes?

    Well, you can enjoy your vacation or get your training/certification to get a good job to pay for other vacations to enjoy.

    Are you serious?
    1. Cancel your vacation, pay the cancellation penalties and prepare for an awesome opportunity.
    2. Take the vacation, and wonder off and on for the next few years if giving up a scheduled police academy was worth it.

    That's the bottom line..........Those are the choices, there is nothing in between. Unless you are already working in an SSPO agency and they are willing support you going later. The folks at New Braintree are NOT going to let you miss squat.
    They are not there for your convenience, and talking about it here only makes you a target of opportunity. WTH!?!?

    Are you enrolled in the SSPA or are you just tossing out the idea of attending? Did you disclose to your appointing authority that you had a vacation planned? Some departments understand you have a social life, but if they already sent in all the paperwork to enroll you and you drop this on them last minute, you're asking to get dropped. Like others have said, this may be your only shot. Your employer will either, be understanding and schedule you to attend the next class, or drop you like a bad habbit because you wasted their time and will move onto another candidate. The SSPA does not give a shit if you have a vacation booked. Cancel your trip to Mexico or the DR and join the real world, or vacation your self off out of a possible career.

    Possibility of getting a last minute spot into the SSPO academy but not sure. Didn't mean to cause an uproar just wanted to know if anyone knew the attendance policy.

    Since no one here cares enough to answer your question, I will:

    Five. You get five missed classes.

    And you get 4 "lates" for the days you just can't get out of bed.

    Only 1 "mental health" day though. What's up with that?

    Please let us know how you make out.

    LOL that's nice, I could only miss 2 days in my academy and those were only for illness or injury. If you twisted your ankle and couldn't do PT for more than 2 days you were tossed out.

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    First off, I wouldn't accept that as truth. You may not have noticed but everyone is screwing with you. Here's a question out of left field, why do you want to know? Is it vacation as presumed or is it you have some kind of medical thing scheduled or you're wedding or what-have-you? Help US, help YOU.

    I was thinking that it was odd to take a vacation during an academy... and then I realized that's not what he said.

    That is that they originally said...until the post was edited on Monday to remove the part about the missed classes being for a vacation. :cool:
