  1. Its general safety in a work environment. I dont feel there is anything to study. Cant give out precise questions.. imagine a picture shows a worker running with tools in hand, you'll say that it is unsafe for the worker to run. Etc.
  2. You will not get results right away. Have to wait for a pre-employment letter, usually just a few weeks after. However you should be able to get a feel for how well you do. Just take your time, listen carefully. It's not a big deal at all.
  3. I will copy/paste my comment from the 8611 thread: It's very simple. Instructor shows you 10 pictures and wants you to answer a safety related question about the scenario in each picture. My one tip is to make sure to give only one answer, dont get nervous and start listing 2+ possible answers.. decide on a single most important fact and put it in a complete sentence. Whole thing is over in 5-10 min.
  4. Humble brag.. my supervisor told me I'll be going to Livingston next week to sign paperwork for permanent status. It has been an interesting year.
  5. Like Young said, it's about a 100 and you do get a printout right away.
  6. Go to your local social security office and pay for a detailed employment history print out, it will have dates / company name etc. That's what I did for transit.
  7. I've worked in title "transit electrical helper, signals" for the past year, i know of a guy who worked in signals for about 6 month, then switched to "infrastructure", didnt like it there and transit still allowed him to go back to his original signals department basically, switching to a new title before you finish a year is not a problem, however, you will not own your title so its not guaranteed they would allow you to go back
  8. if you have a HS/GED then its 3 years of experience instead of 4
  9. They do ask for a HS diploma or a GED on the paperwork, though i don't remember them asking to see the actual document. In any case, i don't think you would want this to hang over your head. Try to get your GED asap.
  10. Received a pre-employment letter to come in for exam 7609 for a "probable permanent position" on Jan 7th. Keep in mind, I was hired from this exam for a provisional position a year ago. So that's for Santa got me for New Years... not a bad present at all.

  12. I like Signals, not sure I'd qualify for light or power anyway so I'm staying here, hopefully that permanent status is around the corner so I can do a year and go to signal maintainer school...
  13. my test was at 4:30pm hehe thanks.. though you have to admit, it wasnt a hard test .. still, that clock forces you to move fast and i think thats why most people make mistakes
  14. looks like im at 95%, with 2 out of 40 wrong. already working as a provisional electrical helper (signals) and hoping that passing this multiple choice test will secure a permanent status as soon as possible is anyone going for mondays protest session?
  15. For clarification, took it on the 21st at 4:30pm
