    PNW.CFE What I meant regarding “hurting for agents” was the fact that NCIS has eliminated making candidates conduct a PT test altogether. This is quite strange as most, if not all other federal LE agencies require this step in the hiring process. I did hear that a large percentage of the NCIS 1811 population was force retired, which explains them bringing back retired agents to help with interviews and background investigations.

        Good Luck and have fun. Good time to go, sand gnats aren't as bad.

          This is agency dependent, as with other requirements (exams, practicals, remedial scores, etc.). Participation is the name of the game for many.

          • I think it's pushing a year since their last announcement which I missed. Anyone have an idea or rumor when the next one will open?

                Generally speaking, they have you conduct a stand alone urinary drug screening at a contract facility.

                My medical urinalysis was done at a local Navy base's medical facility. It isn't a drug screening urinalysis.

            • As of now, there is no nationwide announcement scheduled. Just because there isn’t one schedule doesn’t mean an announcement won’t happen. Also, there’s been no official guidance on the PT test requirement but it will be a graduation requirement for NCIS. If you won’t be be able to pass it day one of the academy, I would wait to apply which is just my opinion. No, point getting through the process just to get bounced day 1 if that’s when the test is conducted. And there is no pre hire PT test. NCIS will be running an integrated academy aka combining CITP and SABT. And yes, those looking to get the 1811 designation to jump ship, the new academy is accredited, so you can apply to 1811 only openings. But, NCIS is excepted service and a lot of those fed only announcements are competitive service which is something to think about. NCIS is an extremely unique organization and a great place to work; however, please do your research before applying to make sure you feel like it’s a good fit for you and your family. This agency is definitely not for everybody.

                  I’ve heard this rumor from HQ a while back. They were apparently talking about implementing a January class. No confirmation on my end. My background was supposed to be done last week so waiting on an email if I get placed in the hiring pool.

                          Just a caveat to the announcement “Applicants should have at least three (3) years of full-time professional work experience in cybersecurity and hold a degree in one of the following areas of study: computer science, computer engineering, or cybersecurity. Competitive Cyber 1811 applicants have recognized certifications such as, but not limited to: GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH), Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), and DOD Certified Computer Crime Investigator courses. As well as experience as a Cybersecurity Service Provider (CSSP) Incident Responder or equivalent experience.”
