    • Another question:

      When can I quit my job?
      If I pass the PFT2, after that?
      I already have my EOD of Dec 19 and Academy date of Jan26.
      What happens after the PFT2?

        • Hello everyone,

          I heard today something that might make some of you smile. I am hesitant to release this information because it seems like bad timing but I believe it may be true... apparently CBP has classes scheduled all the way through June and they are only on February with placing people. Therefore, more calls should go out. I hear a ridiculous number today... and maybe it's accurate... but I heard that approximately 7,000 students will be hired and trained this next year. That seems awfully high but that's what I heard. I will not go into who said it or any of that nonsense. It's just a be glimmer of hope for all of you being patient. Again, do not quote me on this. I know if I were in your spot still... I would like to hear something like this.

          Keep the faith everyone.

            If they hired 7,000 with 40 in each class that would be 175 classes. They are not on schedule to do that. I know that CBP posted a news story around 2 months ago saying they where planning to hire approximately 8,000 border patrol agents. They showed a video of recruiters at a college in Detroit.

              Hey,
              Congratulations on your hire. I got hired for MIA (airport) as well. I start the same day as you but go to the academy before you (Feb 2). Look forward to meeting you. I love PR, are you going to miss living there? Are you working at the airport or seaport?

                • NAC rejected by OPM ! info please

                  I was just wondering if anyone has had this happen to them? I called IA and they informed me that my NAC had been rejected and i was never informed i had to redo my eqip and sign the sf 86 forms. After speaking to IA they informed i did not have to redo my eqip and just re sign the forms and they will be sent to OPM so my BI can be finished. Had i not contacted IA i would of been waiting for a long time, has this happened to anyone and how much after redoing this step did u get called? I am only missing my BI and i spoke to my Investigator on August 8, any info and advice would be greatly appreciated

                      Question for you all....Is this CBP posting for Agents at the borders or the officers at the Airports? Anyone can answer please.

                        This thread is relevant to various vacancy announcements for Customs & Border Protection Officer positions at the border as well as the functional equivalents of the border (international airports).
                        Gek.

                          I am not sure if I disagree or agree with you. Is it likely? Probably not. I promise you I did not make up that number though. Classes max out at 48 students. That would be 146 classes next year. Is it possible? Who knows. It's just what I heard from someone whom I trust. If I did not believe the source I would not waste my time posting it to all the hopefuls on here. It's just a glimmer of hope... nothing more.

                            I don't know about the number...could be true. I do know that the person I talked to from MHC said they were in a big push to get people on board before the end of the year due to funding issues. I asked because there is an almost 2 1/2 month gap between my EOD and FLETC (12/19 start, FLETC not until March). So there seems to be a lot of people getting called who will need to get in on that last pay period of 2011 and because of that, classes are filling fast. I would think that if you don't get a call soon, there might be another break in the hiring after this month. Not trying to crush hopes, just sharing what I was told.

                                Hey All,

                                Yesterday I barely passed PFT 2, the running almost killed me and since it was outside the cold air going into your lungs does not help at all. I have my work cut out for me even more 1.5 mile run in less than 15 mins here we go....lol Now Im just waiting for them to send me the email, Nogales, AZ here I come. Now to drive and be there by 12/5.

                                Talking about waiting for them to send me the email and I just received it.
