There is no way in the world I could ever run the 1.5 in under 13 minutes. I hope it's not time to hang up my hat over something so petty. There are much more important qualities that this job demands than running, so I would hate for my dreams to be shattered because of it.
      Never say never, Lang... You can do it. I do understand your concern though. Maybe they should have different standards for women? Then again, maybe I don't wanna open up that can of worms... lol

      • this would be interesting for a discussion...maybe all current CBPOs will be merging with BP and get pulled from Airports and the TSA will take over CBPO duties in airports and will start the fitness test and go to FLETC course that CBP has now...hhmmm??????

          Well then, in that case we should have fitness tests every few years! (Current CBPOs please don't kill me) LOL

            TSOs doing CBPOs' job? Please tell me you're kidding... They better up their standards. No offense to TSOs but the employment process is obviously not as rigorous as working for CBP.

            • Plenty of women here run under 13 mintues. Same goes for all the 40 plus year olds. Sometimes you just have to push yourself. You think it's hard?
              Tell that to the guy who's missing a leg. Or the girl who had a broken foot throught most of the academy. Or the guy with shrapnel in his leg. I could go on, but sometimes it's just time to stop making excuses and get things done. I'm not going to say I don't think it's tough. But it's definately doable for all age groups.

                hmmmm and now that you have mentioned that, that has been a MAJOR gossip buzz going on lately, i never thought anything towards it...BUT that would be very likely. TSA won't be around for too much longer, they are definitely going to merge them into doing something like that, i'll say within the next 5 years there will be a drastic change in that area...and having them take over international/national clearance and document verfication, inspections for the cbp airport aspect really is not that farfetched. This is something constantly brought up within dhs.

                  No one is making excuses and this has nothing to do with people and their injuries. Its about being fair to all. What if In the middle of an NFL season the commissioner says there will be no playoffs. The superbowl will be played by the team with the best record the each conference. That would not be fair since there have been many superbowl winners who barely made the playoffs. Thats all i am saying. Also if they wait until the next announcement, then people can judge for themselves if they can do it. To be honest with you, I think that the pft 2 should be the academy standard. That way you know you can pass. Those that dont pass would still have a job and not pack up and move.

                      i totally agree. my whole annoyance too is that they should just have the requirements for the pft2 as the overall fitness test and it should be the only one. i honestly don't see the point in having 2, if by the time you take the first pft you are not in good enough shape to the pass 2nd, it is a gambling chance you will be able to pass the pft2, especially with the process moving so fast for some areas.

                        I like the way nashville pd gave us ours. We took the fitness test. if you passed you took the civil service exam that afternoon. If you failed, you didnt. No ones time wasted for months. You also dont have to compete with people for a job that they will not physically be able to do down the road.

                          If this does happen what do you think would be the new role of CBP officers?

                                good thing i have been running to hit the 11:30 mark for another physical for maximum point value
