  • FYI my buddy got the cal today. He got San Ysidro. His EOD is on 10/23 and FLETC 11/18. His timeframe is also pretty much the same as mine except he met his BI about 2 weeks before me. His CASS also didn't go fully green until today.

    • Of course all, there are good reasons why people fail the VBT/SI. Some lines of thinking, some ways of impulse acting lend their selves to a law enforcement career. Some don't.

      People who get coached through the VBT/SI just might end up be your co-workers who shut down or go wildly off the farm when faced with enough stress/danger. Personally, I'd rather see them culled out during the hiring process, rather than see them squeak through with tutelage, and then fold/break at the first crisis, in the field, at a point when I'm really in need of them.

      My two cents anyway...take it for what it's worth.

      • Just curious, for the people who have gotten the call and passed their PFT2, did your CASS update again indicating any new information such as your EOD date and when you are going to FLETC?

          Personally,
          I thought that ANY type of discussion about the VBT/SI was a violation of the non-disclosure agreement...
          I second your sentiment about coaching as well.

          • Maybe they should have you get punched in the mouth then respond. I'd want someone who can still function after getting punched in the mouth...

            • I wouldn't mind having someone who could take a punch either.

              Having said that, I imagine that there are way too many liability/other issues to seriously consider a pre-employment test/interview that would have people submit to what amounts to be a beating as as step towards employment.

              • Hey guys, just want to let you know that i failed the pft2. i did everything and failed the run by 17 minutes and 54 seconds. good luck to everyone. there is three more spots open for texas now as two other girls failed as well. one came in at 17 minutes 45 seconds and the other girl didnt even pass the sit ups. my heart is broken and i am stuck back at square one, so again good luck to all.

                    • Shaniajam, I am sorry to hear that. My heart is broken for you. I know its not everyday that you get an opportunity to change your life. Don't give up, but continue to test again and get in shape. We live in a great country where we get a second chance to achieve our dreams.

                              Surprisingly Atlanta is not one of the places where you can take your pft2. I live just outside ATL so the closest place to take the PFT2 is Charleston South Carolina. Its a good 5 hour drive from ATL. I'm going to be making that drive again but it is what it is. Oh and the facility has an indoor track.

                                If this career really means something to you and you're on the borderline (pun intended) from passing, I highly recommend these two programs. Don't wait until you're in TSU or at the academy to get in shape. I have witnessed first hand dreams being crushed and jobs terminated because someone didn't take their health and fitness seriously until it was too late.
