I practiced it yesterday and pulled my hamstring a little right off the bat. Taking it easy today and icing it. What can I do to keep that from happening when I take the test?
    stretching and light jog, maybe one slow lap around the track.

    Thanks
    Just report the first day with all the documents requested. A HR representative will go over all the forms with you on how to fill it out and everything. If you are missing something they will have copies for you. The first day is directed at basically signing you up all your benefits and employment forms.

    Well then, add an additional 30 training days in Charleston for those CBPOs who require Spanish training.

    58 days for non-native speakers. Add another 9 weeks if you don't speak fluent spanish.

    Surprisingly the differences between the two academy lengths is currently 89 training days for CBPOs and 58 training days for BPAs.

    As far as comparisons like "Navy/Marines" go you really need to be careful. Usually, lots of Koolaid is served up in comparisons. You need to look at 'apples vs apples'. You also need to at what's current...unless you happen to really care about the whys, reasons and differences that applied in the past...but not the present.

    That also holds true for the reasons, current and historically, why people switch jobs. Just because it held true in 2006, there is no guaranty it holds true in 2012.

    Ive seen BPAs leave to become CBPOs and I have seen CBPOs leave to become BPAs (less common). Most BPAs leave to become CBPOs because they want better living conditions. The CBPOs that leave for the BP usually come because they don't like their job.
