    On that note, WHO DAT WHO DAT.....(for one day at least)
    I'm with you on the Amen and the WHO DAT!!! Its crazy over here in New Orleans but I love it!!

    I'm glad to hear they will be starting new classes every week. Very exciting news. The fortunate thing for me is that my port needs officers according to a CBPO I spoke with. It is frustrating to explain to people why I'm still in town... and I cant stand it when people think I'm already back from training. I started a military training program at my gym this week. The guy uses the Navy Seals pre training program. Yeah, I almost passed out the first class!! I realized after this week that you can always improve yourself when it comes to fitness!! That said, I'm going to sit on my couch with a cold beer and watch some ESPN!! Go Saints!!

    • people really aren't processing through that quickly anymore. that's what cass originally posted to all of us in tsu. the 30-60 day wording has been removed.

      there is speculation that when things pick up, they will return to a new fletc class per week. that would be so nice.

      also, i have been told from someone who works in vermont, that they have several vacant slots. that doesn't necessarily make it a priority for dc headquarters, but it's somewhat promising.

          That is kinda strange, I was told that they just cut 4 classes....Only going to be one run in March.

          They are currently trying to figure out how to pay for the short fall created by the decline in user fees. (created by the lack of travel and importing) Once that is done, then they will probably start hiring hot and heavy. April will start the 3rd Quarter, and leave only 6 months in the FY, so that would be my guess as to when the log jam will move.

          • My port overhired in 2008-2009 so eventhough many people have left, been fired, retired, etc., management believes they won't be hiring anytime soon. They also have a group of SCEPs which are going to be hired at the end of the year. I find it hard to believe that this mass hiring will be happening considering I work at one of the largest/busiest ports in the US and am hearing this.

            • Met a guy at my church tonight whose father is a 30 year vet of INS/CBP who works out of Boston. He said that his dad was talking just the other night about some nationwide hiring blitz in the very near future. Still just rumor, but it could add creedence to other rumors we've heard as of late.

                      I thought Congress pushed some extra money into the budget to make up for the travel/commerce decline.

                      I'm not incredulous, I just think it's to all of our benefits to vet these rumors. Haha.

                              As I recall, don't you need to do roughly one month of on-site observation at your POE to familiarize yourself with the port, work duties, etc... and complete paperwork.

                              Also, just curious if anyone wants to chime in about the new 300 officers to be hired for FY 2011 and if anyone else is thinking what I am... that some of those officers are likely to be CBPO Agriculture Specialists???

                              Anyone have or know where to obtain a confirmed list of FLETC classes for CBPOs?

                              Even if it isn't my GEO, I am desperately hoping to hear someone say that they got the call on here soon.

                              Trying to remain optomistic... somehow.

                                As President Reagan famously said, "Trust, but verify."

                                Like I said, I'm not incredulous, but I feel like (and I don't think I'm alone here) some verification of sources would help in weeding out the rumors from the facts. Like everyone else here, I don't want to get my hopes up or down based on false info. I meant no disrespect. That is why I asked qixfeet the same question: who his source was and if it was a reliable one.
