Well it doesn’t guarantee we get a call 😂 but it’s usually the last thing they need before they start calls lol.

Same here. I asked about the next class and received the following response:

“HR specialists have the list for Class 56 and are still working on it. Class 56 is scheduled for July 2021. Offers can be made up until 2 weeks prior to the class.”

It’s tentatively set right now for July 18th as far as the specific date.

And remember anything can happen. We had people get calls right up until the last minute to attend the academy. So if you don’t get a call right away don’t fret too much about it.

Does HR continue to send preference sheets even when the next class has been filled? (For those of us still waiting)

Once the class is filled they won’t send sheets again until the next upcoming class.

The best way to know is when the class actually starts. People can and have gotten the ok to go to the academy the last minute.

Nope, not until the class date comes lol. They have called people with two weeks before but on occasion some have gotten called right up to the date. They will just tell you the class is always changing if you try to inquire if it’s full (I have tried with past classes lol).

People have gotten the call right up to the last minute. I know of some who have gotten the call on the Thursday or Friday before the start of the class date. Sometimes people, at the last minute, decide they don't want the job. They call HR and decline the job. HR reaches out to the next candidates on the list to see if they still want the job. HR tries to give everyone plenty of time to get their stuff together before the start of the class - usually a minimum of 2 weeks, but its not always the way things go.

If you do happen to get selected to attend a class, be helpful to those still waiting. Let them know what kinds of things they should have on hand should they get a last minute call. For those selected, HR will send you reporting instructions with a list of things candidates should and shouldn't bring. Share that info so folks can at least prepare a little in advance. You don't have to reveal everything on the instructions. Clothing items aren't "classified" information. Just pass on some of the things they should be prepared to take should they get a last minute call. For those waiting, please don't go out spend a fortune and buy a bunch of stuff or everything on the list. But if you need a particular type of belt and don't have one, buy an inexpensive one. If you don't own any ties buy a couple. Don't get caught flat footed where you need to run out at the last minute and break the bank buying a bunch of stuff. Just get a few things that you would need and could use in everyday life. You will need suits, button down shirts and ties. You'll need dress shoes. So if you don't have those items or if like me, out grew the suits or have ties from the last century, buy at least 2 or 3 new ones. You'll need them after the Academy for testifying in court anyway. But if your not sure about the upcoming class, maybe only buy one for now. If you get a last minute call you can always run out for a second one before you leave. At least you'll have one on hand to start with.

Also, for those on this forum who have recently attended and graduated from the Academy, please take a more active role in helping the applicants and candidates with information and advice. I'm not saying you should pass on anything sensitive, proprietary, or "classified". Just pass on some general knowledge and advice on the agency and what to expect during their time at the Academy.

Good luck to all. Hope to meet you in the field one day.

I agree! I graduated a while ago, but I’d be more than happy to provide some basic knowledge and tips to make the time at the academy a little more pleasant.

As for suits/attire required: I've read where we are to bring 2-3 outfits with us to the academy. I've also read where the "uniforms" are provided at the academy. Can anyone clarify?

You’ll want to bring 2-3 business attire outfits for the first week, graduation, and anything else that might pop up during the academy. You’ll also bring personal attire/casual clothes for weekends and after class. For the uniform you’ll most likely get a polo type shirt and khaki pants which will be provided to you.

You will get unisex khaki tactical pants and a blue shirt. They issued us 3 sets. VA is super hot and humid during the summer so I hope the July class gets short sleeves. Bring at least 2 suits, some business casual clothes, and casual clothes, in addition to whatever you would wear to workout in your spare time. Don’t stress over the brown boots... the footwear in my class has been everything from brown hiking boots, to brown oxfords, to brown tennis shoes, to brown combat boots.

I am happy to answer questions as best I can for the incoming group.
