Deferment

Post by guillenk815 » Wed Oct 23, 2019 9:12 am

What happens when you have been certified for a position, but you choose to defer? Does it just push you to the next list, or do you have to take the test again and wait. Little confused about that

Some agencies place you in the following class.The next academy class. No you don’t take the written test over.

Just because you were certified for a position does not guarantee you a spot in any academy. Certification just means you are placed on a list of eligibles based on your position number and rank. If the cert is from the 2016 test, you probably cannot defer, most agencies are at the bottom of the barrel of the 2016 list so by the time they certify again, it will most likely be from the new list.
