No I didn't pass the cognitive part of the test. But I will try again next time. I have never seen a test like that. It would be nice if I could prepare for it .

But the license thing was not even an issue.

Glad to hear the license thing wasn't an issue. Sorry to hear that you didn't pass the test. Keep trying. I'm still waiting for the invitation for the panel interview. anxious about it. Who knows if I will get an invite back. Fingers crossed here.

Good luck and study. Also the day of the test come on time. For some reason the last test just about half was missing. They won't allow nobody in a minute after the test.

Good morning everyone. I'm currently going through the background investigation. 23/24 completed. My paper work has been kicked back to verify my education. Hopefully it's done soon so I could attend the next review. Does anyone know how many reviews are going to be held in the month of March

What's going on? I had to verify my current employer. Had to get a IRS wages and statement transcript. And a current pay stub. I guess they wanted proof that I work for a high profile company. As for the educational verification they went to the school database called clearinghouse to verify if you attended a college and graduated. Well at least on my report that what it said they used. I'm attending the overview this Friday, March 13th. As for another overview, I'm not sure. I attended the Jan 12th open house. Almost 2 months later. Best of luck.

Yeah I was at that open house as well. Still waiting

Hey what's up bro? It was pretty interesting. It was about 4.5 hours. We Went over all the study material they gave us on how they want us to answer the questions test day. 35 people were invited. 29 showed up. Our test date is April 10th on "ALL"signal and definitions. We have to memorize all of it by then. Lot of information. Been studying since I got home that afternoon.

That's exactly what I'm using. I paid for the plus. Scanned all the images and created my own sets. I printed them out as well. So I got all the flash cards. been studying since Friday night. So far put in like 10 hours total. It's going to be a challenge with working full time, 2 kids, 2 dogs barking and the wife in my ear(if your reading this babe. I love you hahaha). I'm up for it.

Does anyone know if they are still looking for trainees or are they all set for now?  I know they posted last Fall, but nothing since.

no way to finish the cognitive in the time they give you. you just answer the questions as fast and accurately as you can. once you pass cognitive, vocabulary and math is easy.

Exactly. There's no way to finish the cognitive. Out of three parts. You can finish the flow charts. My suggestion is follow what thier looking for. It's all about reading and following the directions and not about finishing the test. There's no way to prepare for it. Back to studying these signals and definitions. Edited by drenyce311
