    OFO is currently under the GS pay scale.

    As with many things, that might change at some future point.

        Border Patrol...

        I can't speak of the current academy...but it's not the current OFO course of fire in the field.

          NVM, i just read the last few posts. I have a secret clearance from the Army, but I was told that was not worth anything to CBP.

            If it's not the exact course, it seems very similar to it... it is a 300 course at FLETC, and a 150 course once you get to your POE. There is no shooting from the 50yd line other than familiarization with the M4 later on.
            As to your BI clearing rather "quick" has absolutely nothing to do with having a "secret" from the military. You might have gotten an "interim" clearance so that you can get hired and hopefully a fully adjudicated BI by the time you graduate from the academy. Not an uncommon practice with the agency.

              I received that same call last friday morning. I was informed someone would be contacting me in the next 1 to 2 weeks to schedule the polygraph.

                Thanks for the info Yoda I was hoping you would chime in . Yeh I didn't really think my previous clearance had anything to do with my BI going so fast.

                Thanks for staying active on the fourms Yoda hope evething going great for you.

                  Useful fitness standards will always be a balance between attracting and holding on to talent and diversity. Some agencies push for 'fit' people. That's fine as far as it goes, but it often means culling out plenty of people who have many excellent skills outside of fitness.

                  As far as CBPOs go...most of us have little need to be more than moderately fit. Stephen Hawking likely would make a far better CBPO than Chuck Norris, under most current situations.
                  Yeh, I completely agree with you.

                        I met my background investigator 7 weeks ago but I still haven't had my VBT/SI yet. Just living life and being patient.

                          I'm scheduled for the beginning of next month. Have you tried calling the oral board unit ? You should have been scheduled for the VBT/SI within 30-60 days from your TSL1.

                                I will add I already had an active Secret clearance not sure if that sped up the process any.
                                Thanks for replying. I have a top secret clearance as well and it took 4 months to get that. I know every cases is different and working for the G already I know better than to get impatient but I just can't help it sometimes
