      • Yesterday afternoon, my drug screen was still pending after two months. I looked at CASS at 0145 today and it was green.

          I had to fly to Dallas for the PFT2.
          1. 220 yard sprint in 50 second or less
          2. 25 situps in 1 min or less
          3. 17 push ups in 1 min or less
          4. 1.5 mile run in 17 min 15 second

          They will give you 5 min break between each step and be relaxed when you go there cause they will measure your Blood Pressure. Good luck man

            • I know some local LE departments give there new recruits a car to get to and from the academy. My question is does anyone know if there port supplies them with a vehicle for the few weeks at your port for pre-academy work? Not for the actual academy. Don't know whether to rent a car or not yet. Thank you.

                  The port is not going to provide you with a car. You will find out quickly that government cars are one of the most regulated things in government work and misuse of one WILL get you in tremendous trouble. The only thing worst would be the misuse of the government travel card.

                    I sure will, by the way did they tell you how long the port visit is? Do we get to come back home or straight to fletc?

                          Aparently using a GOV vehicle for personal purposes won't always get you in tremendous trouble..........

                            Nice article, but to piggyback on what FB said, one the fastest way to get a personal tour of an IA office is the misuse of a g-ride, credit card, or badge & creds. I assure you that it is taken seriously by the agency, and can / will earn you "time on the beach" to termination depending upon the circumstances. These among other things will be stressed at FLETC and your port.

                              • I've been reading the forum for a few weeks, but hadn't been able to post because of 'age restrictions'. I hit reply today to see if, by chance, my emails and messages to the moderators had finally been answered and voila.

                                I tested back in October 2010 and, after waiting forever because of medical reviews, I finally got my EOD 2 weeks ago. I passed my PFT2 last week on Friday and 3/11 folks didn't pass. I'm supposed to EOD November 7th in EP, TX, and I go to FLETC December 6th. Still waiting for the firm offer.

                                Good luck to everyone that's been waiting. I wasn't even expecting a call until next year because I wasn't aware that the academy was such a merry-go-round. I figured I would have to wait for a new class after the holidays. The call caught me off guard and a bit out of shape. Keep up your fitness levels. It's a shame to wait so long and fail at the very last step on something that should have been a breeze.

                                I hope to see some of you at FLETC!
