      • Now why can't you retest?
        I accept and am working....cbpo
        I apply again in 6 months to go through the whole process.
        They can't say your hired and can't take the test again.
        Now when they issue TO for the new test your name will be there..
        They may very well skip over your name because they can or want to but no-one can tell you, you can't take the test again.
        Difficult decision.
        I may be in that august class with you folks, i'll be the slow old guy in the back...

                    Relax and breathe.
                    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

                    For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.

                      Sure, you can re-test. Whether or not it'll do you any good is the ???.

                      About 18-24 months ago, I spoke to a supervisor in MN about this very thing.
                      He told me that the field office had asked the hiring center to use any legitimate reason to deny TO's to anyone current employed as a CBPO.
                      Supposedly it was allowing too many folks a way out of too many 'hard to fill' spots.

                      What that means to everyone, I don't really know. My quess is that it might be possible to move from a 'sweet' location into a 'hard to fill' one by re-testing, but the chances of moving from a 'less desirable' gig are extremely remote.

                          06/30, so I've heard. I'd expect one soon, most probably before 07/06.

                              I just spoke with my cousin who works for DHS and she says that the first date that scheduling gives is the EOD. The second date is report date to FLETC. In my case I start July 7 at my POE and report to FLETC August 5. You work all the way at your POE until you leave for the academy. I don't know exactly what you do while waiting for FLETC. I'm assuming it's like an orientation on everything.

                              • You'll have to read some of the older posts, but some of the guys at FLETC right now got to go to the range while working at their port. From what previous posters have said, and it seems like the time before FLETC is supposed to be used to study, and to make sure you are comfortable with the job.
