    You will just need to do the Border Patrol version of the PFT (which is easier than the CBPO version believe it or not lol) and the Oral Board version, which does not have the VBT, it is just a panel interview with 3 agents. It is scenario based, as in what would you do if.... everything else will carry over.

    • Whoa! I got another green check mark! "Your Background Investigation has been completed"!! This is for CBPO... the background for Border Patrol is still showing as "In Security Office" which I find weird because I thought they would go green at the same time. Time to call MHC!

          I took the poly yesterday and failed. Apprarently I am witholding/concealing/sharing info about national security in connection with foreign contacts. I guess the fact that I did a semester abroad in the UK and still keep in contact w/ my friends via email there warrants red flags to fly up. I am baffled right now. I know I have a better shot of winning the lottery than having QC reverse the decision and take another poly. I took a poly w/ US Cap Police a year ago and was offered a COE. I laughed when the person told me this was the reason I failed.

          I wanted to tell the person conducting the test, that I dont have time to take time off work, pay for travel to DC, and spend 8hrs in a test to lie or conceal info about "natl security". But I know this would not have changed anything and the gov't has their "process" with everything.

          Just a a fyi for people taking the poly- the machine is not 100% accurate, that is why it is not used in court. It is frustrating to know that a machine can have a direct impact on your potential career path.

          I wish everyone the best of luck. Adios
          Do not turn down any steps until you get the final letter saying you failed. I took the PFT2 with a guy who had t do the poly 3 times. Your results will be reviewed and if they feel that the "failure" is not the kind of failure they are looking for then you may be called to retest for that part. You may even get a different examiner. Your not out until you are out.

I have recently moved to a different state because my husband, who is in the army, had to relocate. Now we are leaving fro 2 weeks to visit his parents for the holidays. I just remember how horrible it was when I got the call for fingerprinting and I was 1200 miles away from my mail box and freaked out because they only give you like a couple days to resend it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated
            usually they want to meet with you asap because they have a specific time frame to complete your investigation and paperwork. Of course since its the holidays that is understandable. I am sure if you get called while out of town, you can schedule to meet as soon as you get back in town. Make it the very next day because you want your background done asap...

                THe Border Patrol PFT2 is not easier... it is harder. You have to complete the 1.5 miles in 15 minutes. CBP 1.5 miles is 17 minutes and some change.

                  You're right about that, I should have specified that I was referring to the PFT1 :P

                    • Are there any 2012 testers out there that are getting provisional clearances who are not currently working for the federal government? (ex: Firefox, User, Twink)

                      It seems like the people flying through the process might have a leg up because of that. Just curious...

                        Hi,
                        I'm not sure if I'm getting a provisional clearance but I just took the drug test today and meeting the BI is the last step for me. Hopefully ill b one of those ppl who will just have the investigation done while at FLETC. Idk why I'm nervous about the drug test, lol I'm clean but I suppose it's natural to b nervous for every step of this process. Merry Xmas everyone and happy New Years! Hope alot of us get some good news for the new year.

                            The BI is also the last step for me. I spoke with my investigator today and he told me that they're about to wrap up my investigation in the next couple of days.

                            • on a side note, it might help that I am fairly young (24) and since they only go back to when you are 18, they only have 6 years to research

                              • darn it! I had a missed call earlier and I didn't bother to check my email, it was from Comprehensive Health Services. I am assuming that was to schedule my Drug Test, by the time I noticed and called it was too late and they had closed, now I have to wait until tomorrow to call. They won't cancel on me for not taking the call right?
