My process took about 1.5 years from application to graduation. Only about 11 months from interview to graduation. But can vary based on detachment and region. In my region testing dates are few and far between. It's frustrating on both sides as it's an unnecessary delay. But after the interview stage, your local detachment is no longer involved in your process. They merely receive updates on your progress.

Oh ok. I didn’t know that. Maybe I’ll wait to book a PATI through ATS then. I still haven’t received anything from the OPP ref my application I dropped off. So in the meantime I have applied for the RCMP.

I figure why not. I was going to wait 2 years or so, try out OPP Aux and then if I enjoyed it apply for regular Constable but decided to jump in with both feet while I wait.

Backgrounds were due in late August for October's class. If you haven't heard anything yet then you're looking at the spring class, most likely in March.

I'm on already. I'm involved in recruiting for my unit, that's how I know the deadline for the BGI has passed for October's class.

Hello all,

I passed my panel-interview in March 2018. I write my PATI and Psych tests on October 5th. I was speaking to one of my references, he said that he was already contacted in regards to the position. This happened in July. I thought references were to be contacted after the successful completion of the aptitude tests? Are home interviews mandatory for the application process? I am wondering if they are trying to accelerate the application process?

Best regards,
Jett.

Just received an email stating interviews were being held soon and at that time I would be contacted to come in for one. Things are moving along. Question though. I have applied for the RCMP since applying to the OPP Auxiliary program. Since the application process for RCMP can take years, would it still be beneficial for me to proceed through the OPP process? I am very interested still and look forward to either one

Currently the hiring process for Auxiliaries is administered by whichever detachment you applied for. Due to this, the order of how things go can vary and also the amount of time each step takes depends on the need for new Auxiliaries at that detachment. A home interview is a part of the Auxiliary application process.

Good luck!

Congrats on passing the interview. I was curious if you had been told that testing will be in November? I had my panel interview in May (successful) and hold a valid COR but I am still waiting for the psych test portion. I'll keep an eye on the mailbox.

Wow, they actually visit with your current employer/supervisor? Interesting, I thought they would just have a nice in depth conversation over the phone!
