    Their current academy class is scheduled to graduate in I believe September. So I would expect a quick time table, with a next possible class in November.

    The next class generally starts the Monday after graduation.

    Expect them to hire 10 to 15.

    Good luck.

    For trainee pay? Not really. You start the clock as an employee and have benefits, workers comp if you get injured, etc.

    I paid to put myself through an academy and had none of that.

    Gotta thread jack here: Back in the day, when I went through the academy, the take home was something like $196 a week. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Could not, for the life of me, figure out what I would do with all the $$.
    How times have changed.

    And yes, i am a dinosaur.

    I don't know if that figure is accurate or not for academy pay, but I know that the pay is quite decent once you're on the job. I believe top base is in the mid-70s, not 100% sure though.

    I just totally made that shit up. Whatever it pays , you should Be glad that you might have the opportunity to get this job. Some people forget about some sacrifice so their lives will be better in the future.

    I know they pay for a portion of their academy by having it deducted from their check.
