FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • We have compiled a list of questions that users frequently ask us. Please take a read over these before submitting any questions that need to be answered, as they may already be answered below.
    • What is the Basic Correctional Officer Academy Process?
      • The Process can be found by clicking here.
    • When do you announce your recruitment schedules?
      • Academies are conducted every month, normally towards the end of the month unless other circumstances force this to change. The actual schedule is announced around the middle of the month and can be found here.
    • Do I have to attend every Academy session given?
      • No. Only one of the three sessions need to be attended. Each one is exactly the same. We offer multiple sessions to provide a wide range of opportunities for applicants to attend.
    • I have an admin record. Can I apply?
      • Each admin record is assessed on a case-by-case basis. For us, there is no set protocol or guidelines that we adhere to. If it's recent but minor, this could mean it is ignored, but it all depends on the circumstances of the admin record. We recommend that you apply anyway.

How important is effort taken in "Why do you want to join" question? What is the minimum number of words to consider there was effort taken into writing it? (I know 100 is minimum, but asking how much do you need to have others look at it as question answered with enough effort taken into it. )

The very minimum is 100, but the purpose of the question, apart from letting us know the reason of your intention to join, is testing your English skills. We routinely ask people to add more effort to see if they're able to formulate sentences flawlessly.

If application is left with record check as reply only, does it mean it meets standards for application? (Has no errors)

You'll receive a verdict on the date seen in the recruitment schedule. The message is meant to be a notice that your application has been forwarded.

It needs to not be the same person with the aforementioned record. A name change will suffice. You may create a new character if you wish.

You can not copy paste your answers as you will be under a new name, representing another person.

You're expected to give us an answer as to why you want to join the faction whilst showcasing English skills and motivation. Beating around the bush and claiming the faction is omnipotent is not what we're expecting as an answer.

Excuse me but what do you mean by beating around the bush?I was just asking this so I wouldn't have to stress myself with answering the same question again since I already proved myself the first time I mean that's the point of the question right?I'm referring to the ''Why do you want to join'' not the rest of the questions. So please, I'm just a bit confused by what you mean can you clear it up for me?Thank you very much.

You may use the same OOC answers, if you think they were sufficient. That's what he meant. IC answers cannot be copied for obvious reasons.
