Very good, Congrats on your offer, hopefully we will see each other in May at OPC
Congrats on your offer JohnnyQ. Is this offer from OPP? Also do you or anyone else knows if all offers for May class have been made?

Thanks everyone
I spoke with the person handling my file on Thursday and they said that offers will still be made for the April class.
Thats good, business as "usual".

I assume that most of the bigger services will find work / training if OPC does delay the may intake. Remember the services did put a lot of time an effort into finding the candidates they offer employment to.

It's hard to keep your head up due to the unknown, even with a contract, but police services never stop. Keep at it!

Hi all,

I have a question about submitting your fitness logs. In the email it says this:

“OTHER-Fitness log-‘Month’-‘SURNAME’”.

What would you put for OTHER?

Thanks in advance.
“Other” refers to the type of update it is. Only things you change to the file name is the month and your last name.
Thanks for your help matty!
Tall guy here.

Hi everyone, another question...

Trying to practice for the potential of aptitude tests..
1.) I am using just the generic website tests from police prep. For those of you who have taken the SIGMA test, did you find the actual test easier or harder?
2.) is there are a strategy to the mapping questions?

TIA!

Hi Everyone!

I am just in the beginning of the process and working on the application package, I know for the application you have to list all employment history but what about the resume? Is it better to list everything or list a few and go into more detail about those?

Thanks in advance

I used my resume for my more recent jobs that offer transferable skills to policing. I think I had 4 or 5 jobs listed and the rest was on the employment history form.

Hi Guys! I've sent OPP recruitment an email as a follow up on my application. They told me they've sent a status letter to my home. I'm assuming it's a rejection letter.

I wish you guys well and good luck on your applications. Take care guys.
