    depends on how they are hiring... if you're in a paid class, you're an employee, so theres no competition. If you're in a class that you must pay for and there's 15 people in it, but only 10 openings, its seriously competitive, they can only take 10 so there's 5 people assed out. so it really depends on what class you get into/ if your'e hired or not etc...

    Yeah but the class behind us (non-paid) only has sixteen, and the job posting was for sixteen. You have to interview for he class (non-paid) so they are not going to let someone take the course that they don't think would be a good dispatcher.
