Don't stress over this. It's just one more hurdle. Evaluation is easy. The best advice I can offer is to be yourself and as with the rest of the process answer all questions truthfully. Don't try to answer what you think they want. Relax. You are near the end . It's an accomplishment to have made it this far.

Well, it's been a little over 4 weeks since I have went to my medical and psych. I guess it's time to call for a status update.

I recieved a medical clearance letter back at the end of May, and I contacted HR to check my status, but they always transfer me and the person they transfer me to never answers nor calls back.just wondering if they have already filled up next academy class?

She is the person they keep transferring my call to, but she does not answer. I will try again this week. Thank you

Thanks CaptMike. I read the entire thread. Is there any additional pointers. I saw that you had some people message you for additional info. Would it be okay if I messaged you.

Received my medical clearance today. That makes 5 weeks. As far as I know that includes my medical and psych. I hope to hear from HR soon and be in the next Academy.

Anyone know the next Academy date? From previous posts, I'm assuming sometime in July. I have already received my medical clearance and went through the entire process with no problems. Any tips from anyone who has gone through the academy are appreciated.

I知 new to the thread and I知 in a similar situation as many of you posting. I finished my psych and medical in mid-May and received my clearance about a month later. Now I知 also playing the waiting game. Does anyone know if they will call us or email us to let us know about the academy? Just another patient, yet anxious guy wondering.

Captain Mike do you know if they hold more than one class at a time? Also, does it seem normal to be cleared for hire but not be invited to the next academy?

only 1 class at a time for now. after you finish all exams, your packet goes to quality control for final approval. that can take a month or more to review and decide if they are offering an academy spot.

I responded to your PM but the system says that you have to many received messages and it did not let you receive any. it said you have to erase some to allow more.

to answer your question. the counties plan G is designed to make you stay longer on the job. the percentages get better as you get closer to 62. here is the link to the plan.
https://www.lacera.com/benefits/Plan...section11.html

Also, I recommend you call LACERA regarding your previous county time.

CaptMike, as per my PM to you, regarding my situation, at 47 years of age, is it worth it to make the switch? At what age does the County consider you too old to work? Is the 11 week academy still a stress academy?

age is not an issue. it is only an issue to you based on the retirement percentage. look at the link above and you can see what percentage of retirement you have coming to you. figure out how many years you are willing to work and look at your age then. also add your previous county time if lavera let's you buy it back and you can see what the retirement will be. Also, to get your lifetime medical, you have to work25 years total. once again, dont know if lavera will let you count your previous time since you cashed out.

in terms of the academy, it is alot easier than a few years ago. it is now considered semi stress so anyone can pass it. it is not really a challenge. dont worry about it.

good luck.

Are they going by STC minimum standards?


If so, we had two extremely pregnant women in our core class, and they passed just fine.

our academy is the toughest in the state for JCOC. we go way above STC minimum standards. that being said, STC minimum standards are extremely low in comparison to POST standards. if you are in moderate shape and are not a quitter, you will pass no problem.

And I've heard JCOC is tougher then probation core, which I did. Not saying much though considering how low the standards were for PO core.

Well, I took the written test this past Friday. Now, it's the waiting game until my score comes in. Any ideas how long they take to let you know?

You won’t find out your actual score till after the oral exam where they combine your written test and oral exam to give you one score.Although you will find out in about 4-6 weeks if you passed the written. I took the written in April and the oral exam in May. I didn’t find out both actual scores and placed on a band till late August. I’m now waiting on an eligibility list that’s good for 18 months. Now the real wait begins for me. I applied for DSO. I also applied for GSN almost a month ago and I haven’t received an update for that. Apparently my written test score will transfer but I will need to redo the oral exam.

I called the recruitment unit and they said they are overstaffed with DSOs and they don't plan on hiring any more any time soon. They did say they are hiring for GSNs and they said when it comes time to hire more DSOs, they will look internally first before they hire outside of the department and county.
