    Yoda, would I have to re-do the PFT1 because I did the old PFT1 back in 09?

        I did my 2nd medical about a month ago. I was not required to take pft1. There few others here in the forum did the same.

          Some have, some haven't... I guess it's up to MHC. I know I did both formats.

            I think this is recently done this way for some of us oldies. I won't be surprised if MHC is going to change their procedures again.

I'm thinking there was some miscommunication between IA and MHC, and now you're delayed for another week! As long as you get there bud, have fun with the VLC's and don't fall asleep!...
                The same thing happened to me.

                Hopefully you wont get delayed any further friscoplayrf, or else you'll have to redo the pft2 like me. lol

                  Not much can be said without violating the non-disclose. Just relax, listen to the instructions, ask questions if needed, and take your time.

                  It is a strange experience.

                    • I have had to do the PFT1 three times now, but the last time I did one for Border Patrol and CBP just used it also.

                      • I got the call today from the background investigator whose going to meet with me on Monday at my current job to conduct the investigation. The investigator told me that the whole process should take about 5 hours. I'm glad I work for the Fed already and that they're used to these types of things because I could see another employer going crazy after letting someone interview you based on future employment at your current work place.

                          "interview has been scheduled" however I don't know the "scheduled date"?

                            Wow that's nice... I didn't know we had that option! Did you request that with the investigator? Or did he/she?

                              I had my meeting with my investigator at my apt and it took an hour to go over all the paperwork.

                                No, I didn't. The investigator just told me "we'll do it at your job" she knows her way around the building already, I'm sure she's done quite a few background investigations there. She told me it would take about 5 hours all together, I actually like the idea that we're doing it at my job because I don't have to take leave and she can check a lot of my references while she's there.
