    Just wanted to drop a line and see if there is anyone else that lives in Murrieta, California or the surrounding areas that is going through the process with CBPO, took the exam in December 2010 and is at the tail end of the process. Also that they selected the SWB as their port (ie San Yasidro, Otay Mesa, Imperial Beach, Port of Longbeach, Ontario Airport, San Bern logistice Airport, Etc.)
    I live up in Hesperia. Tested in December 2010 for CBPO with CA SWB as my pref. My BI has been interviewing my references the past couple weeks, so we'll see what happens.

      I just submitted my Eqip..The wait begins...

      I'm hoping they can do medical/pft in 1 day and the VBT/SI another day so I'm not taking too many days off of work...
      From what I've heard, most people are doing their medical and PFT1 together the same day, but it may be different for you. Mine was scheduled separately, a month apart from each other at two different locations. So, like I said, it may be different.

        Does anyone know how many days of travel a new hire actually gets before he or she has to report to the Academy in Georgia?
        Is it based on class Academy start date and size, Or Duty Station...

        Just share with me your story, please. I saw through this blog that they only gave 24 hours to one new hire, to get from his port
        Nogalas, to the Academy in Georgia.
        It mostly depends on how hard(or easy) it is for CBP to get you from your home port to FLETC. More often than not, it's quicker to fly.

        Nogales is 65 miles or so from the airport in Tucson. From there it is a flight to Atlanta...and then either Brunswick or Jacksonville to catch a van ride to FLETC. As alternatives...you can fly from Tucson to Las Vegas or Denver and then to Jacksonville...or to Brunswick via Atlanta. For the most part, it ends up only taking a day of travel. Hence one travel day. If you're looking at traveling from Nome, AK or the NMIs as examples, you'll probably see more than one travel day.

        If you really wish to drive, ask about manipulating your schedule to give you RDOs before embarking for FLETC. Using annual leave for travel may also be an option...if you have any.

          Hopefully someone can help me with this question!! I would love to have this process move more quickly, I took the test back in Dec 2010, got my results 1/25/11, never got a TO yet. My geographic location is the SE Region, mainly LA. If I changed my geographic location to the SWB and went through the process and got employed, how long would it take before I could get accepted for a transfer back to LA????
          New Orleans is a small Field Office. I imagine that would affect both your chances of initial hire within that FO, and your chances of relocating into to it...at a future date.

          My advice...if Louisiana is where you want to be, wait for an LA offer. If you are willing to work the SWB, apply to the SWB with the idea of never getting back to a port within the NO FO. Expect to get no closer to LA than Atlanta, Miami or Laredo. If you happen to make it back...great. If not, well...that is life within CBP for you.

                • I have a couple questions about the Side-Step test for PTF1. Does anyone know the distance between the lines? And do center line crosses count too or is it only outside line crosses? I read through the pdf on the site, but it doesn't address those questions.

                      • I am scheduled for my drug test tomorrow, here's my timeline:
                        written: Dec 9 2010 (87/w vet pref)
                        Switched GEO to AZ from Buffalo, immediately got TO in early May.
                        Medical and fitness:May, June.
                        BI: started in June in different state, met with me July 26, still in security office.
                        VBT and SI: Aug 4, Eligible Aug 12
                        Drug Test scheduled Sept 8.

                        People who have gotten the call, does this look good for an October EOD? I'm optimistic and praying for fast budget with no delays. I am not naive and realize it could take a long time, but confident it won't take to much longer because of my GEO, hopefully Nogales, AZ. Any thoughts?
                        Test: 12/10 (Geo: BUF) New Geo: AZ 5/03/11 TO:5/25/11
                        Pre-Employment and Quals: Pending
                        BI: Started 6/11 met with investigator 7/26/11...Pending
