    Well I dont have to met with any Investigator, sent my fingerprint cards or complete the QIP, because is a 5 years time frame. When I applied for this position the staff of the MHC told me that I dont have to complete all this employment process again.

        Sorry buddy, but unless you are a BPA, you will have to go through the BI. MHC has no say so in this... It is handled by IA in DC, and they process both CBPO's and BPA's. Welcome to the board!

          If you FLAG a post, the mods will take a look at it, and then decide if indeed it needs to be removed. Apparently someone Flagged one of HTJ's posts and everything that had to do with him was removed, I hope he got banned as well!... It's nice to have our Thread back.

              • [QUOTE=sara gonzalez;1941848]hello im new to this website my name is sara ,i live in downey california , does anybody know if the written exam for cbp hard , i take the test on sep 25,2009 in portland oregon , any info would be great . thanks[/QUOTE

                It's not hard, but people still fail some how!! I do remember it being about 5 hours long and I had a headache when I finished haha, but no it's not hard, atleast I didn't think it was. You should be ok, eat a good breakfast and get some good rest the night before and you should do fine! Good luck....

                  • Sarah,

                    Use the study guide provided to you. The math section on the test is more difficult than the study guide but only because they use bigger numbers. If you are able to do the study manual easily, then you shouldn't have a difficult time on the test. Good luck.

                      The BI is only valid for five years if you are hired. If you haven't been hired yet then its only good for a year and they may ask you to fill out the forms again.

                          I understand you, in June 09 I got the pre-employment forms and BI completed, then in July they sent me a letter requesting the same form..
                          I don't understand how the staff of the MHC works it's like they try to delay the process.

Well good luck with everything, I hope you don't wait in TSU so long either. As for BP, you're just looking for change, or trying to get back home, or at least closer to home?
                            I am looking to get back home ASAP!

Well I wish you the best while at the academy and who knows if I get everything cleared and also start off academy in Sept.

                              Best regards!
                              There are some affordable motels here in Laredo, pretty easy to find actually. What location are you going for, anyways?

                                I have been in TSU since January. I am running and lifting and don't foresee any issues with the physical requirements at FLETC except, I am concerned about this sit and reach. I am not flexible and never have been. I have played sports all my life and have never been able to touch my toes. I stretch regularly but I am worried that I won't be able to reach the 12.5 inches. Is this a deal breaker? Am I making too much of this? I have worked hard to get my run times down and the other stuff and it would be such a shame if I failed the sit and reach. Any information would be most appreciated.
                                I have signed up for a yoga class, also Pilates those can both up your flexibility, and your wife/husband will like the results too lol. I know that I am not going to flect anytime soon since my fitness fail, but I will retest and hopefully get there within the next two years so I am gonna keep doing what I have been doing and hope that next time my instructor is a little easier going.
