I just finished my final fitness graduation test and passed. But be on the look out any minute now they will change it to 13 min 1.5 mile run
    i got the letter on 1/11/2012 confirming my acceptance for the CBPO position (pending PFT2)

    the 1.5 mile run must be completed in less than 17 minutes and 15 seconds. the standards were right there on the letter.

      My class just started last week and a couple of other people in the class also got that info in an email during pre-academy. I have not been able to confirm those new standards with any of the PT instructors yet, but it was an official memo to the chiefs in charge of training at the port level instructing them on the standards and making sure the pre-academy people were still maintaining a certain fitness level. It could be a mistake, but either way I don't see them moving to a 13 minute 1.5 mile.

      Oh I haven't heard those changes. Well good luck to all of you who have to do those test. I am graduating already so I'm all done with fitness test. And the reason I say those changes is because the main person in charge of the academy is a BP. So he's trying to mirror CBP to be more like BP

        when you say 15:30 is that for FLETC? 15:30 is still a decent amount of time for a run. does cbp give annual PT tests like the military?

            As for hiring, I would keep your eyes open for any kind of CBPO announcement on USAJobs.gov. I would think if another announcement did open up within the next year that it would be exclusively for the Southwest border. I would imagine that they currently have a ton of applicants in the pipeline though. Make sure you set up an account and a job search on USAjobs so you will be notified of any future announcements.

            Good luck
            180Degrees,

            Thank you for the reply. I do have a USAjobs account and have several apps in for various positions. I will be graduating from the U of MN-TC this May and am trying to find an entry level LEO job. I will give my contacts back home a call in regards to the program you mentioned above. Again, thank you for the info and good luck to you as well.

              Yes for FLETC not the PFT2. IMO 15 minutes is more than enough time, 15:30 is too much. But thats the last info that I have. I should be able to confirm if that is the new grad standards sometime this week.

              As far as know there are no annual PT tests.

                Yeah I heard that they may be moving to 13 minutes too from all the guys at my port in doing post-academy. Thats why I was surprised when the chief at my port handed me a copy of that email with 15:30 as the new standard.

                • The paperwork I also got recently regarding the PFT2 stated under 17 min 15 sec for the 1 1/2 mi run. Currently the BP has had a standard of under 13 min for their trainees to graduate from the academy. I can't comment on their PFT standard as I never had one when I was hired there.

                  • Yeah pretty sure i failed.... It's cool did my best, can't blame anyone but myself for not preparing myself. Time ti hit up the gym and get ready for the next time. Best of luck to u all I'll wait to see what Cbp hiring center says.

                    • Thanks. I have been planning to get a half sleeve for quite some time and didn't know if they require you to cover it up at all times during academy as well as your port. With that said I'm sure the port has their own rules on that stuff but nevertheless I got an answer for academy =)

                        If it's questionable, gang-related, obscene, racist, or something likewise you'll likely be told to cover it. They may ask you to cover it, to the extent possible, while on duty regardless of its nature.

                        Face, neck, hands or head tats will be an issue. Basically you'll need to be able to cover them up under those circumstances that'll require you to cover them up.

                        If you don't already have tats, why exactly would you be planning to run out and get them? You've got to figure, especially in the LEO line of work, that tats on one level or another will be an issue...if only a minor one. My two cents...save yourself some grief and avoid getting inked.

                          I agree, I have a full sleeve and no matter what line I of work I was in I always felt I needed to wear long sleeves. The agency I am at most people don't even know I have tattoos and although I love my tattoos and would not get rid of them it can be a pain in the *** to cover them up. So unless you are hell bent on having these tattoos I wouldn't suggest it. Plus makes for some warm summers.

                            Not really questionable or gang-related, obscene, racist, or anything like that. It was going to be a phoenix with some cherry blossoms, 1/2 sleeve if not shorter to where a t-shirt sleeve would conceal it.

                            I've gone through some rough times and have always wanted to get something to document it and show how I prevailed in the end. My fiances cousin is a well known tat artist that would be doing it for free. Thats the only reason why I was going to take him up on his offer.

                            That was another thing I didn't want something that would require me to wear a long sleeve at all times because I definitely don't want to be sweating on a warm summer day.

                                I haven't gone to a specialist yet. Not every office has a doctor that is certified. My friend who is in Optometry school said she thinks it is pricey, but she said it is definitely safer and cheaper than Lasik. Let me know if you find out some information about it and I will do the same for you!
