      Are you saying if we don't get called for FLETC by Sept 2012, we will have to wait till next year? If so, is it because of the winter time? And if it ends every year by the end of Sept, what month does it begin classes every year?
      All right...let's try to clarify a bit...

      First, there is, as far as I know, no "official" class list that's been released. One reason for that is probably because CBP wants to reserve the right to modify/cancel classes/dates at their want/whim.
      So...don't take any future class dates as gospel. View everything as tentative.

      Most things within CBP run under the fiscal year(FY). FY's run from 10/01 until 09/30. As far as I know, the only classes scheduled are FY12 classes...which stop at the end of September. What's to come in October...I don't know. Over the course of the last few years CBP has run as many as close to 70 classes, hiring nearly 3000 new people...to a handful of classes, hiring less than 200 people. Pick something in between those numbers as the target hiring for FY13 and you'll likely be correct.

              Second that Drifting, 11 months and counting! Getting close to a year though. Called IA last week and was told that my adjudicator worked on my BI last April. Repeatedly said it was a month ago so I'm going to take that as towards the end of Aprl. She then stated that could mean its nearing completion and I should call again this week. Well if you know the way this process has gone it could mean nearing completion, could also mean still needs some more work or maybe they are using my BI to find the fountain of youth in South America haha. Who knows being worked on last April could mean ANYTHING! Your right though, the way I see it I'll get this summer to enjoy and then get the call. Don't get me wrong, I'd leave in a heart beat if I got the call tomorrow!

                    The budget is beyond shot and they are not sending anyone to the academy till Q2 2014.
                    There will be several classes filled by the end of the year and thats it.
                    She said if CBP could lay people off they would. THey have way too many ports with too man employees and some with not enough - but traffic is way way way down.
                    Same with the USBP, they are not hiring till Q4 2013.

                    Look at local agencies and ATF
                    well with the mass hiring and high demand of people they are bringing in by the end of this year, i dont see why they would need to do another hiring after this anyway

                        So for people that got TOs this year you don't believe they'll be sent to FLETC until 2014?! Boy I hope you're wrong.

                          Even better question why did they extend it? I've also read that in AZ alone they are expanding two ports with an eye on expanding a third and Atlanta just expanded aswell. They are going to need officers for those ports. Not to mention that during the hiring freeze that only stopped last year, they lost a ton of officers to attrition. If you speak to any officer at most ports they are down people and need help.

                            We can add even more... What about the new NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) approved? this will add more transit to all ports of entry. Who knows, as we see in this process, no everything has sense for us because we don't know the procedures...

                                Mass hiring?

                                I doubt they've covered actual attrition with the hiring practices over the last 2 years. Regardless, it could only be viewed as 'mass hiring' if one conveniently ignores the past practice of hiring 2500-3000 people per year.

                                FWIW, the current attrition rate is around 4%. Basically they need to hire roughly 800 people each year just to break even.
