Yeah they had my SNN number wrong too. They had my phone number as my SNN. But it all worked out, as we also crossed them out and put the real SNN number in during my physical.

I got my long-awaited phone call on Tuesday from the medical department. I'm qualified and good to go for the REDI center on 26 Oct. I haven't received the official letter, but the medical department said I was updated in the system on the 17th of Sept. That's good enough for me. Now, where's my itinerary?

I can't remember the exact date anymore but I'm sure my tests were right around the end of August/first of September. They were a week apart. I was medically cleared on the 17th of September. But, had I not had an issue with my physical and had to stay in touch with the medical department, I'd still be in the dark about whether or not I passed. I did email HR this morning and got a response that said that they were currently processing the 10/12 class and that they would be in touch with me soon. So, I take that to be good news and I'm just going to have to be patient and wait my turn.

Hey all - it is funny how when they want to get things done quickly they can and other times it just drags on with no word or anything.
I will be at REDI starting 10/6 for Dispatcher the 3 to 11pm training shift - Staying at the Ext Stay 2225 Interstate North Parkway.
I decided to drive down to be able to have my truck with me to get around if needed.
I am still trying to find out about the facilities and surroundings near the hotel and I will post updates as I am down there.
Good Luck to you all.

Does anyone have any idea what kinds of things we're supposed to bring with us to REDI? I can see from the less than two weeks notice that the 10/12 class got, that if I need something like a specific style of steel toe boots or anything like that, I'm going to be scrambling to get it at the last minute. I'd like to have a heads up about that so I can scrape together the finances to go out and buy it and not show up to class short-handed.
