Congratulations! That's fantastic news :D! I got the email yesterday that I'm moving forward in the process and so I'm just waiting out now for a call with specific date/time information.
That's great news Joseph! Congratulations!
One of the first things the Sargeant that interviewed me said was that I should be happy to have gotten an interview because out of all the applications they receive only about half of them get to the PBQ and only half of those make it to the interview.
So getting the file number means that your application has been only deemed complete nothing else right?
Pretty much, I think. I’m not a recruiter so don’t quote me on that.

Hello everyone,

This is my first post on the thread! Here is some information on my process:

Applied : August 12, 2019
File number received : August 21, 2019
PBQ: September 12, 2019
LFI: September 25, 2019
LFI results: September 26, 2019
Background investigation stage: October 2, 2019
Psych/sigma test : October 22, 2019

I was wondering if anyone else has been waiting for news since October/November? I have not had any news since my psych test but I’m hoping no news is good news for now..

Thanks!

Hey!
First time posting as well.

My timeline is roughly the same as yours, and I’ve been waiting since then as well!
No news is good news (at least that’s just what I’ve been saying to reassure myself)

I know every application has a different timeline, but how long after the LFI did the background stage start for you guys? I got a notification that I passed the LFI a few days after the interview, and got scheduled for the psych/SIGMA that day. The tests were done last Friday, but my background has not started yet, and I’ve not done the medicals or home interview yet. So I’m just wondering how long did it take for other applicants to have their file assigned to an investigator, which should indicate that I passed the psych test.

Thanks for replying Sbux. I actually received the e-mail requesting fingerprints and medicals this afternoon, so I guess that means I passed the psych!

I used the free resources online through police prep. The sigma and the pati. :) You can purchase practice materials... all depends on how strong you are with that stuff.

Thats what I am using right now as well as a book. I’ve checked all over the net for more free online resources have not found anything else. I might more study material the better. Thanks.

That's awesome! I'm no mathlete and it was way easier then the pati. I focused on studying spelling (picking out the mistakes) and the mapping. The mapping can suck up a lot of your time. Best of luck!!

How long did you guys receive a call back after initially applying? I’d assume general timeline is 2 weeks?

You should receive your file number within 2 weeks. But as far as a call back for the PBQ or interview there is no set time limit. I waited 2 months. I would try to scroll through this feed and see what timing others had to give you a better idea :)

Easier than the Pati, good to know. Would you say reading books was the best method to study for the spelling? Mapping do take the most amount but it’ll be alright. Thank you very much
