prescribed by subparagraph one of paragraph  a  of  subdivision  two  of
section  two  hundred  fifteen of this article shall receive the minimum
salary of his position plus the number of increments  which  corresponds
to  his  years of service in such position, subject to the provisions of
this section, provided, however, that  effective  July  first,  nineteen
hundred  seventy-one initial employment in the position of trooper shall
be at the training rate and progression of such  members  or  any  other
troopers  paid  at  such  training  rate  to  the  minimum salary of the
position of trooper shall be by means of an annual  increment  equal  to
the  difference  between the training rate and the minimum salary of the
position  of  trooper  subject  to  the  conditions  described  in  this
subdivision,   except   that  on  or  after  the  date  that  the  first
collectively  negotiated  agreement  entered  into  after  April  first,
nineteen  hundred  eighty-one  pursuant to article fourteen of the civil
service law covering the unit consisting of troopers in the division  of
state  police is executed in writing, initial employment in the position
of trooper shall be at training rate one and, such members shall advance
to training rate two effective on the first  day  of  the  next  payroll
period  following  the  member's  anniversary date of appointment to the
division  of  state  police,  subject  to  the  provisions  of   section
forty-four  of  the  state finance law, provided the member's service in
the  position  has  been   satisfactory   in   the   judgment   of   the
superintendent,  and  further progression of such members to the minimum
salary of the position of  trooper  shall  be  by  means  of  an  annual
increment  subject  to  the  conditions  described  in this subdivision.
Annual increments shall become effective on the first day  of  the  next
payroll period following the member's anniversary date of appointment to
the  division  of  state  police, subject, however, to the provisions of
section forty-four of the state finance law. Except as provided below, a
member shall be eligible to receive an increment in such position on the
first day of the next payroll period following the member's  anniversary
date  of  appointment  to  the  division  of  state police, provided his
service in the position or positions  held  by  the  member  during  the
previous   year   has   been   satisfactory   in  the  judgment  of  the
superintendent. No member shall receive an increment which would  result
in the member receiving an annual salary in excess of the maximum salary
prescribed  for  his position, or the amount to which he may be entitled
pursuant to subdivisions two and five of this  section.  Notwithstanding
the  foregoing provisions of this subdivision, members who are initially
employed in the position of trooper on or after October first,  nineteen
hundred  eighty-one  shall  be  employed  at  training rate one and such

to be effective on the first day of the payroll period  following  their

subject to the provisions of section forty-four of the state finance law
and shall be payable provided the member's service has been satisfactory
in  the  judgment  of  the superintendent. Notwithstanding the foregoing
provisions of this subdivision,  on  and  after  April  first,  nineteen
hundred ninety-six, members who are undergoing their initial training at
the  New  York  state  police  academy shall receive the academy trainee
salary and effective upon graduation from such training shall advance to
trainee rate two and such members shall advance to step one effective on
the  first  day  of  the  payroll  period  immediately  following  their
completion  of  one  year  of  service  to  the  division,  and  further

annual  increment to be effective on the first day of the payroll period
following their completion of each  additional  year  of  service;  such
advancement  shall be subject to the provisions of section forty-four of
the state finance law and shall be payable provided the member's service
