    Did you go to actual intergrad last time or the dumbed down driver school that they usually push seasonal through?

    If you made it through once you'll make it through again. They are basically giving you a free vacation so don't rock the boat, go pass intergrad again, and be ready to be the best 22.4 driver ever.

    Nope we did the watered down version aka NSPT and went fulltime immediately after season and a few years ago when we did season management told me that my peak counted as my 30.....it changes depends on where you are. Im in norcal and my nspt was in menlo park

    Yes, I had to do the exact same thing. Integrad twice, first time as seasonal second time as cover. The class was exactly the same except the diad tests and final road test were graded more strictly. Was easy yet stressful... I wouldn’t wish that class on anyone.

    Glad I was put in a local class and was working right away. I didn’t go through all these shenanigans. Best of luck brother.

    And I use to complain about having to write a fake letter as to why I wanted to work at ups.

    The new class is super hard. Good luck. Most fail that new 500 question exam.

    Pretty sure if you were to go back to threads from this time last year, you will find a bunch of threads where people asked the same question and got the same answer that you are getting now.
