I was wondering for anybody who passed the S & D test this July 9th has heard any updates or ideas on when the class will start? Did anyone hear anything? Please share your input

Has anybody who passed previous S&D exams heard anything yet?

 

Passed the November test but it looks like a lot of people who passed in 2019 haven't heard anything. Trying to gauge time frames.

The HR people are going to tell you that you need steel toe boots but in reality that's not true for our department. You just need black leather shoes that lace up with metal eyelets and have a defined heel not exceeding one inch. If you prefer boots, by all means go for it. I personally find working the train in boots to be uncomfortable, so I only wear my boots if it's snowing. Otherwise I wear these, an oxford shoe by Red Wing. Expensive but very comfortable and lasts way longer than the other junk I bought when I first got hired.

The people that passed in March 2019 are just getting invited now for a January class. You'll probably start before June.
