      I reapplied for a geo-change to SF/OAK during the last open announcement and I am just praying for a TO before I get the call. If the geo-change is a success and I am re-entered into TSU for SF/OAK, thus superseding my previous selection's geo location, do I get to keep my old TSU date or am I entered into the system as the later date? I am assuming the latter considering they would have to change my Application ID for the second TO. Oh, and by the way, Happy New Year!
      Thoughtless,

      I think once you have TO for one location, you can't apply for a new location.

        you can apply, but once you get a T.O. for another location you lose the previous T.O. If thoughtless is still in CASS for San Diego, it means that they have not moved on his request. If he is out of CASS for San Diego, he is in limbo world waiting for a T.O. for SF/OAK.
        I changed my GEO location about two years ago and they pulled me from one, gave me a new T.O. and had me re do some paper work and I was put back in. Took about 6 weeks, however, you have to receive a new T.O. first.
        Since the hire slow down, his paper work might just be sitting somewhere because they have to put you in with a new announcment. I read on here that someone just emailed MHC and requested a GEO change without applying again. I had to apply again when I did it.

          I doubt it.

          To come even close to catching up with attrition CBP will need to hire roughly 1600 CBPO's this year. That's roughly 34 classes. Chances are the hiring number in actuality will be several hundred more. They really hire far too many people 'to take more than a few weeks off'.

          FLETC serves far more agencies than just CBP. CBP has to compete with everyone else for space at the center. There's a limit on how much flexibility CBP has with regards to scheduling their training. I doubt that they'd be given the training space they need, if they just arbitrarily decided to take until January to get moving.

            I believe requests for a geo change through email are only applicable under the same announcement and/or before you receive a TO(someone correct me if I am wrong). When I initially applied in February, only the northern and southern borders were available. The TO I am waiting for is from the nation-wide April announcement. I received my NOR for SF/OAK in May so I know I am at least in the system.

            UofU76, when you received your new TO, what forms were you required to redo? I have copies of everything, but it seems wasteful and redundant to send six month old triplets of Eqip, fingerprint cards, and et cetera all totaling 100+ pages. Were you able to keep your original TSU date or did you have to go back to the end of the line?

              remember that booklet of forms we got? I had to do that over, minus the finger print cards.

                I hope you are right. The last 7 months of being in TSU have sucked the hope right out of me. 3 years, I been in this process for 3 long years.

                  Did you have to fill out the eqip over?

                  • Does anyone know if there is a youtube video of someone doing the side step test? I really don't understand it exactly. How far apart are the lines? Just want to try to practice it in case I have to retake the fitness test.
                    Thanks.

                      If I'm not mistaken, Once you received a TO you no longer can change your geo location. If you do change it you lose the TO and must start all over again from scratch. double check on that.

                        • If you have a TO, you may change Geo. by applying under any new open announcement. If you receive a TO for your new location, you will submit a new application packet and you old TO will become null and void. You will go to the back of the TSU line for your new location. The benefit is that while everyone else is completeing their pre-employment steps, yours will already be complete meaning that you will get back in line faster than the newbies (but you will still be at the back of the line).

                          • Hello Everyone

                            Hope all is well, I just stumbled upon this very informative blog, and would like to thank everyone for posting their info. I applied on July, Tested in August of 08, and was referred to TSU on the 17th of July for Miami. I hope we get that popular call sooner than later.
                            I also wonder if you make it to TSU, what are the chances of getting hired.
                            Thanks to all once again.

                              This is exactly correct. I know because I am doing it now (see my timeline). I currently am in TSU for one location and awaiting a TO for another that I applied for under a different announcement. I have confirmed this with both the TSU people and the MHC people.
