    So how's FLETC going for you? How are the tests & PT?
    PT will depend on your PT Instructor, mine likes to take us to the track everyday we PT, the other half of my class spends most of the time doing techniques in the mat room with seldom running... all classes are split, just in case you were going to ask.
    Test wise... it is government testing, not too easy, not too hard. If you study you should be fine.

          I wonder if those who received NOPAS's during the process will be subjected to taking the polygraph?

            Hi Chris thanks for you input, well my vision is the only thing I worry about because without corrective glasses it is pretty bad. I believe the 20/100 is the second line in the poster they usually test you on correct? Well without the glasses I can barely see the big letter and a bit blury, I might be able to make out the second line if I squint a bit. Hopefully I do make it out :/ I wonder if the test is on a poster like they usually test you everywhere.
            I'm not sure which line is 20/100, but I definitely had a hard time reading the top line. I only knew it was an 'E' because that's what it always is. I squinted to see the second line. It's not a very scientific test. They just put in you a dark room and light up the chart on a wall about 20 ft away and you read as far as you can. They'll do one eye at a time and then both eyes. Squinting really hard to see the second line, I think I was 20/80. I think the girl there told me 80 meant I missed 2 on that line. I have no idea how they grade it. Just make sure you really try to see those letters on the second line!!

                  Thanks for the info. So that means that 2 new classes every week until June 2012? So those that took the July 2011 test, and are currently in the process have a good chance at getting a class date if we complete all pre-employment steps?

                    Do you know, does that assume that it doesn't matter if the budget gets passed before FY end? Meaning they'll still run classes even if they're running under Continuing Resolutions?

                    Zipties, I am in the same boat as you. Have you found a solution yet?
                    I called CVPD. They do fingerprints, but only on Wednesdays and Fridays from 8AM-11AM for $10. I'm really considering waiting and then FedEx 2- or 3-day the envelope to MHC. Doing that is about the same price as the place on 3rd Ave in CV. From the overwhelming responses here, I feel it's wise to wait and have a LE agency do it. What have you decided?

                        A specialist deals with your case during preliminary adjudication. From there it's goes to your assigned adjudicator who makes the decision on your background.

                        • Does anyone know if NOPAs come in certified mail? Or of anything else that might get sent in certified mail from MHC or CBP?

                          Edit: It is not from MHC or CBP. I think I'm getting audited by the state agency that regulates my business, but I can handle that.

                            Not even the people at MHC know how many classes will be scheduled or how much hiring there will be... If your info is from a CBPO from your POE... it is unreliable to say the least. With no 2012 budget passed, there is no money for new hires for FY 2012, that might be why the sudden influx of hiring at this point of the year. Just thought I should throw this out there...

                              I posted this last week on the possible surge in hiring but it seemed to go unnoticed. I am not sure how far into the future they schedule classes, but a CDI (Course Developer Instructor) at FLETC said they were scheduled to run 14 classes concurrently by this (2011) calendar year's end. To make this possible, each class will only have one Session Supervisor (down from two) in order to fill the number of incoming classes. Our CDI informed us his next class was going to have a full 50 students and will be starting tomorrow 9/13/2011, if my memory is correct.
