Are things still moving along with the AC programs?

Still curious where I am at as I passed late last year

No they cancelled the upcoming classes that were supposed to start in may and moved them to August. I passed july 2019 so if you passed after that just be patient! Stay safe everyone!!

Any word on the classes for August? I passed this March and haven’t heard anything back from them yet.

Can't provide info on the August classes, but I was called a few weeks ago to be told that things are essentially on hold as a result of the pandemic while the MTA/LIRR sorts things out, so things might take a while from here. For context, I passed in November.

Hey sorry for the very delayed response man, been trying to take my mind off all this craziness and remain positive about it but to update you the classes ended up getting canceled. I was told that id be updated when everything got better and who knows when that is going to be, ive heard some pretty bad things from current employees on what may happen if the lirr dosent receive their $12B in relief money due to the virus so im hoping after the election they can start making progress on that and end up ultimately getting it ASAP, but in the mean time id find something in the mean time but expect them to call you with updates once things get better because this sadly may take awhile before any new people get hired

Exactly you pretty much nailed it right on the head, it’s frustrating because im so eager to start already and learn new things, ive been studying the S&D, and engine whistles and horns signals, communication signals, Hand, Flag, and lamp signals since i passed the test in july of 2019, and i know it all like the back of my hand which is the only positive through this but i want to learn more. Ive practically put my life on hold just to land this position and something thats out of all our power is holding us all from this opportunity. Im wondering if anyone that’s currently on the job can give any tips on what to study besides the stuff ive listed?

Sorry for the spam but this may be something to be positive about i dont really know but i saw on newsday recently that the authority is considering borrowing $3B from the federal government and the state also is giving them permission to borrow another $10B but it dosent say from who, so hopefully they may make some hires with that money if they feel like they can. Ive been trying to stay positive with that information. 2020 has been a crazy year to say the least definitely wasnt expecting this to end up how it did

Been a while, anyone heard anything?

Hey man, so in my eyes things are looking better but still there hasnt been any progress with the hiring process. I know they are getting another $6.5B in aid money to help fund them and i think they received there total of the $12B they were looking for. Ive seen on their website that the LIRR is hiring for other positions so im assuming the freeze is over now but classes have not started yet. I had reached out to see if they had any updates on the AC classes and they said they had no updates on the position at that time and that was maybe about a week or two ago. Not sure if anyone else has any other news or anything in this forum, its been kind of quiet as of late but heres to hoping they start these classes up when they add more service across the island and the city as things start to open up. Would be great to hear if anyone else here has some news

Hey everyone, not sure if anybody really still reads this but i did get some news from someone in the lirr i know and they heard they MIGHT be contacting and moving forward with train personnel as soon as next week. So fingers crossed anyone thats delayed like me can move forward in the process with this news being brought to me, even if they are not they have alot of positions right now that are entry level that id definitely recommend applying to just to get your foot in the door with the agency. Ill keep everyone posted on if i here anything back, lets hope this madness is all over ASAP, hope to see all you on the trains soon!!
