You do not need to wait until you have enough hours worked to reach the next class before reporting your hours. Such has if you feel like turning in after every 100 hours is fine.
After you work 950 hours, Freeman will send you information on taking the exam for Class 4.
If you take the exam early, you will not get the bump in pay until you reach the 1000 hour mark. However, If you don't take the exam until after you reach the 1000 hours, you will not get any retro pay for the difference. aka wait until 1100 hours before taking the exam, your pay will still be at the Class 3 rate until you pass the exam, at which time your pay will be at the new rate.
Absolutely not. The Dispatcher does not have that information when referring you to a call.
