    This is why the VA is always short handed. It takes AGES to hire new people when someone leaves.
    I must agree. When they called for the interview, it had been so long since I'd applied, I didn't even remember which position they were calling about, since I applied for every one they had in which I was qualified for.

    How is everyone preparing for cpne when it's current wait time is 12 months out? Start in 6 months after applying? I want to take a prep course just not sure when I should take, appreciate anyone's feedback or perspective.

    Dont wait 6 months start today. Would you eat an entire cow in a single setting? Of course not lol you would serve it up in smaller more tolerable portions. Do a little everyday and then it won't seem as overwhelming

    I applied for the CPNE February 2017 and received an email that I would test between January and March 2018. That means my wait time is between 11 and 13 months. The current wait time for students who does not call for cancellation dates is about 12 to 14 months. You're not going to catch me complaining about the wait time. This will give me PLENTY of time to be 100% prepared to test.
