  • Well...I didn't pass the VBT. It kills me that they don't tell you what you did wrong. I thought it went very well. I never really have failed anything, so it sucks.

    I guess they reviewed it immediately because I did not do the SI. They didn't tell me I failed until I received the letter in the mail. I can still log into CASS though.

    Anyways, I'm done crying. I wish everyone the best and once you do make it, be vigilant in defending our country and don't take any shortcuts.

To make a long story short, I am in pre-academy training for CBPO down in El Paso. I am originally from NY. I am a December 2010 test taker, and hit about every bump this process can throw at you. So if I can be of any assistance, I'll try to be. Good luck everyone.
              Can you drive up to Minneapolis and call me and offer me an EOD please?...lol

                        Congrats, you been told correct. you do a 4 week pre-academy ( could ne longer) at your port. i'm currently going on week 3 of 4 at buffalo ny. First day is port tours,paperwork, maybe meet port director or assistant. you will your oth of office, then the next few weeks will be alot of wbt-web based training (also called -vlc) taeek or so will be ke a few tests, firearms review, and then last will be your port observation. pretty much shadowing other officers or working with other training officers. Pre-academy training was created to give the new officers a feel or understanding of what the job is like. then after academy you will have 34 more weeks of post academy training. good luck

                          VBT is easy. Just use common sense. They want to see if you're someone who is stern yet polite and professional (at least that's what I think). If you should worry about anything I think it's the polygraph (worse part in the pre-employment process by far). 5 hours of scrutiny and judgement of your personal integrity and honesty while at the same time not being told what your thought of is harsh in my opinion. Then again this whole process can be harsh especially when knowing that your life is on the "VBT" line or the "poly" line or PFT2 w/e. At any point your application can be thrown out. Take it for what it's worth and know that God is in control. "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

                            • Hi everyone! I was trying to do some research on some of the cities that might be possible destinations for me. That way, if I do get the call (even though it won't be for a while) I'll be ready and able to make a decision just in case I get a few choices. Does anyone know where a complete list can be found? I was able to find this: http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/toolbox/contacts/ports/or/ which is a page for Oregon; but is that really all of them? All of the states can be found here: http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/toolbox/contacts/ports/
                              But again, I was unsure if this was really a complete list. Thanks to anyone who can help me out!

                                I would be very, very surprised if they offered a new hire any port not on those lists.
