      • New test

        Hey guys just thought I'd give you a heads up. I applied for CBP Officer like 3 years ago and decided to go a different direction turning down a TO. I guess they kept me in their system and I received this email today. Apparently they are scrapping all current test scores and everyone will have to retest if not already given a TO. Apprently the test has been revamped. The entire current inventory of applicants are being terminated it looks like.



        November 10, 2010

        Dear Customs and Border Protection Officer Applicant:

        Our records indicate that you have an active record on the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Officer applicant inventory for the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

        Why are we sending you this letter?



        Changes have been made to the CBP Officer written examination. Consequently, the current GS-5/7 inventory will be terminated effective November 14, 2010.



        What do I need to do to establish eligibility on the new register?



        If you wish to be considered for CBP Officer positions at grades GS-5 and GS-7, you will need to register, take and pass the written test. Candidates must register for the written test online at https://cbpmhc.hr-services.org/cbpo beginning November 16, 2010. Vacancy Announcement CBPO 11-1 will open for registration on November 16, 2010 and close on November 23, 2010 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time, or on the date the first 25,000 registrations are processed, whichever occurs first. Registration is available 24 hours a day. We encourage you to register at your earliest convenience during this upcoming open period.



        The CBP Officer Announcement may be found on the Internet at www.usajobs.opm.gov beginning November 16, 2010. We believe that proper test preparation is essential for the successful candidate and suggest that you take the time to carefully read the study guide. The study guide is available on the CBP website at http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/careers/study_guides/guides supervisory/entry_guide. Candidates may also download a copy of the guide at the close of their registration for the written test.



        What happens if I do not register for the new written test online via the Internet?



        Due to the termination of the current inventory you will no longer receive consideration the CBP Officer unless you register, take and pass the new written test under Vacancy announcement CBPO 11-1.



        For more information regarding the entry level CBP Officer position and the application process please visit the CBP careers website at http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/careers/. Thank you for your continued interest in a position with U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

        • I haven't gotten that email yet. I took the exam in April of 2009. I guess I'll have to wait for it.

          • I just got it I'm shocked they are scrapping the entire inventory.

            • I received the email today also. I tested back in March of 2009 and my NOR was 100% and i have never heard anything except an email here and there extending the valid status. Anyone else think it was/is odd that I scored 100% and never moved anywhere in the process?

                me neither. I think it may just apply to applicants that tested but never received a TO. Anyone with a tenative offer or in TSU get this?

                    As stated earlier by someone that called in.... it applies to anyone in the pool of applicants that didn't get or have not gotten a TO. Those that have received their TO's and have been in the process for quite some time are not affected by this, unless they want to reapply for a new Geo Location... then they will have to register and take the new exam.

                          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.

                                My unit is up for deployment Jan 2012, but I'm still waiting on BOLC confirmation and a possible move from state for Law School, unless I get a "miracle" call from CBP...in which case I would be moving to another state as well.
