A friend of mine who works at EMDC said the most recent group did 4 weeks online COTA and the rest is training in house(paid). He’s not sure if this is due to covid or the new way of training going forward. He also knows a friend who received an offer about 3 months ago.

I would schedule the FITCO test as soon as you can. The spots fill up quickly. I did mine in Hamilton. If you’re a runner it’s a no worries, and if not it’s only 4 and a half minutes of jogging and running quickly for a bit. I am just waiting for my Security Clearance, NEO test and offer if everything works out. Good luck.

True. Just get it done ASAP especially with the pandemic putting delays on everything.
It’s fairly easy. I much rather see a bench, squat and deadlift added to the fitco LOL. (Sorry that’s my inner bodybuilding background talking) 👍

How was the NEO test. I’m still waiting to be sent the link. They told me during the interview it’s virtual and not very long. Something that you can’t prepare for. I’ve never had to complete a psych test, should be interesting.

It was about 250 questions . Fairly simple and straightforward it’s a personality test. They compare it to the MMPI-2 but it was different, google big 5 personality test and it’s similar to that.

Thanks for the information. Nice to know what to expect. I couldn’t find any examples of a NEO test.

Where do you get the results for the REACT on the web site or is it an email?
I also wrote my REACT test in November and I just received an email today stating I passed. It also mentioned someone will reach out to set up a virtual interview by the end of the year.
