Received confirmation that every component of your OACP (prep / wct / pati) will need to be valid at the date of your first class (Dec 16)

So essentially, if your PREP expires before Dec 16, 2019, it would be wise to get it renewed if you wish to be considered for the next class
Ridiculous.

Ridiculous.

I do not agree with having to keep your OACP certificate up to date. BUT if this is something that you want (Speaking to everyone who reads this) then you will do it because nothing should stop you if you really want this job.

That's incorrect. Tps this year never had the pin. Apparently it's required for only the December class

So the TPS Pin test page on their site, created in 2016, is only relevant as of 2019 December? That doesn't make any sense lol.

I was at OPC in 2018 and no one from TPS had it as a condition of employment to pass the PIN prior to attending (no clue if that's the case now though).

It's not a requirement.

That being said, don't think the trainers at TPC won't be harsh on you if you roll into training shaped like a potato and struggling to hit a 50 on it. They will also expect to see improvements in the mark's when you return from OPC.

The PIN is far easier to train for as every component can be trained for at home with minimal to no equipment. There's really no excuse.

The PREP is more difficult to train for as most people don't have the ability to set up an obstacle course.

Fitness should go beyond just doing it to get a job. This line of work can take a toll on you and fitness is imperative in preventing that.

Good info to have, thanks Devilwoman. I am signing my offer Monday and was advised that both had been re-added as a condition of employment.

My self testing began today.
