    If you go to usajobs.gov it talk about this in the open announcement. Near the benefits and pay area.

    • For anyone who has been or is currently in the Academy I have a question about the running? How often and how long do you run? Is it like every other day, every day etc? The reason I ask is that I have a bit of a back issue and although I know I can pass the PFT-2 since that is just one day of running, I know regular running is not suppose to be good for my problem and will likely only make it more aggravated. I also know that the Academy is around 4 months long and I am now too far along in the process to even consider a back surgery to correct the problem if I wanted to. I am in great shape and workout everyday (currently doing cardio on an elliptical) but any details anyone could give me on the running part would be greatly appreciated.

      • I figured I'll enter this thread as well as I'm taking the CBP test on the 18th here in Chicago. Hopefully some of my data transfers over from BP. I chose the Southeast geo. preference.

          • The pushups may not get you through. But I think you may have a chance to retry. I don't know exactly but good luck.

              Running is a part of the academy. From what I have read it depends on your training officer. Some are ex marines. But I Believe you will run at least 1-2 times per week. And to graduate I think you need to run 1.5 miles in less than 15 mins. I'm not sure the exact numbers but they run at Fletc. I would not like to see someone sent home in the middle because of injury. But I know it does happen. Good luck and try to get some therapy with your back. Hopefully someone who is there can give you an accurate answer

                          We pretty much ran everyday.

                          • PT will be Mon-Wed-Fri and Tues-Thur - alternating weeks. Whether you run or not is dependent on which instructor you have. Some may run you every PT session. Another may focus on defense tactics with a little bit of running mixed in. The majority of the running most trainees will do is on their own time after hours.

                            • Been waiting for LAX/LB for a couple years now...jeez

                              Supposed to be in my 2nd background, but haven't been contacted. My Medical was renewed a couple months ago when I went in for the basics, but no drug test renewal? CASS just updated that one no problem.

                              Has the poly gone mandatory yet? or is it still just on a case by case basis?

                              I sent in my eqip for the 2nd time a couple months ago, still haven't had CASS update or get a 2nd BI

                              • The new FOOBT academy is significantly different and more challenging than previous academies...from what I've heard. I'd go there expecting a rather different experience, running included, than that of what those people who've graduated from previous CBP academies went through.
