    Also how can I study for the battery test ? I been studying for te TEA for ATF I don’t know if they are similar
    I found a FAMS Assessment PDF but it's from 2009 and I'm not sure if the exam has changed since then. One thing I learned however is that these federal LEO exams all have similar formats usually including some logical reasoning questions, situational judgement, some sort of grammar comprehension and maybe a math section.

      Take it with a grain of salt. It's TSA and if I remember correctly there were more TSA related questions than LEO

      Are you a vet? I’m guessing vets are getting looked at first. Just a guess.

        I assume that's how they do it as well. I submitted my app on the 22nd but had to update some info a few days later which may have "reset" the submission timer on their end. When i applied in 2016 I met the requirements so it would make sense I'd qualify again with more experience

        I'm in the same boat. Submitted on October 1st, made my last update to the application on October 3rd, the announcement closed October 4th. Still waiting on a FAB invite and I see the blue star on my dashboard.

    • That is a possibility.

          Did the guide from the email help? I'm taking mine in a few weeks.

        • Passed my FAB, I'd rank the test right next to the FBI test, and higher than the USMS one. Those are the only comparisons I've got to gauge from. Got my results and invite for Field Office Assessment almost immediately.

          Also, word from a current FAM, told me that a lot of retirements coming down from current agents. Plus the HSI/ERO lateral picked up quite a few so looks like this is going to be a big hiring push. Still, a lot of chatter and push to have FAM back under ICE.

          • Still haven’t heard anything. Probably really don’t need this job but I’m interested.

            • Why is the training for FAMS only 36 days? Is there some other add-on training after FLETC, Artesia?

                I’ve heard the first half is basic stuff and the second half is all of the FAMS specifics, lots of shooting and scenarios. That’s all what I’ve heard anyway.

                I was just wondering why it was such a short stint at FLETC. My last training was 17 weeks, so 36 days without additional training elsewhere didn't make sense. I was guessing that FAMS was similar to other agencies that did partial training at FLETC.

                Any idea if they allow new employees to skip the first half if they already have federal LE training?

              FAMS offered early retirement so some may have chosen that route but the information about HSI/ERO is highly unlikely. FAMS moving over to HSI/ERO was just announced a few months ago and this after a major hiring surge by ERO from a January 2020 and November 2019 announcements. My office picked up 7 going from 25 to 32 line officers. These officers are waiting months to attend the academy and all FAMS will have to attend the academy like a street hire. I have not heard of a single FAM coming onboard through this “program”. Down the road things may change but I just don’t see ERO hiring very many at least in the short term.

                Exbpa340 Got this directly from a current FAM they were offered a direct pipeline into HSI/ERO and some took it. But they'd have to go through the CITP training and they'd try and reflect their current pay scale but not seniority. The biggest hold up besides politics with a FAM to ICE is where the supervisors would go/rank. This is years down the line but there are changed coming in FAM, COVID having affected them more than other agencies.

                I understand exactly what was announced but as of right now I have not seen a single individual hired through this program (ERO). Not to mention it was only announced about three months ago. So your “intel” of many using this program to come on board is highly unlikely at this point. ERO just went through a pretty big hiring push so current openings will be limited.

                - Any FAM transferring to HSI will need to attend both CITP and HSISAT.
                - Any FAM transferring to ERO will need to attend the DO academy.
                - Any FAM Supervisor would come on board as a line Officer/Agent.

                Any FAM coming on board would probably not be placed at the journeyman level because they do not have immigration experience/investigative experience. If they do possess that experience then at most they could be brought on at FPL.

                Exbpa340 Not sure about how the process works all I was told was that it was announced and a number of FAM took up the offer. Besides, that and the early retirement offers know that's why this hiring announcement came through.

                It'll be interesting seeing what happens, least for now don't got a dog in this race.

            • I got the FAB invite today, and the closest date to test in my area was just over 2 weeks away.
