  • They shouldn't disqualify you due to a technicality like that. If anything, they will/should retest you.

    Pro-tip: My evaluator placed the step against the wall, and I only stepped using my toes and half way of my foot (center of ark of foot). That way, my weight would not be causing me to stomp like a dinosaur. That worked for me, YMMV.

    Good afternoon folks,
    I'm new to the forums . I am a current employee for DHS and had applied for Customs. I had taken the exam back in June of 2013. Received a passing score on the exam and revived my TOL in November. I took my PFT 1 today and added the points up. My total number is 123, I do have a question for anyone who may have n answer. During the step test my foot knocked over the top part of the step. In that very second my instructor placed the top back on and I continued the test. My instructor passed me because I continued the pace even with what had transpired. The instructor had wrote that in the comment box about the foot incident . Would anyone believe that the reviewer will fail me? Or they will possibly have me re-due the test? I had a feeling today that the step will either fall over or I'll trip on it. I guess that's what happens when your stomping like a made women or man. If anyone could possibly answer this question. I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thank you

        Thanks! I just verify CASS and found the long waited green checkmark, I recommend you do the same and see if you run with the same luck. Btw now I have to update medical.

        • Are you sure you want this job? It's like factory work. Stamping I-94's, passports, and asking the same questions over and over again.

          I don't even feel like a LEO. I feel like a glorified Wal Mart greeter with a gun.

            Sorry about that. Thanks for the info, but some of us, would love to be those greeters. So maybe you can quit, and open one more spot for someone who want to be a greeter overpaid with a gun. But any how, thanks and please enjoy your shopping

                      If you come to a real Port you be working, so when you talk about cbp, just let them know where u station. If you really want to work come to the south west border.

                      • Just got back from my PFT1 today 1/9/2014, I think it went well. I added my score with the pushups, situps, lift, and side step, it was a total of 116. I was struggling because I worked out my abs on monday after so long so I was dying lol. Overall it went well I think.

                        • Did anyone save the score sheet to add up the PFT1 scores??? the site won't open for me. I would like to know what i scored. I completed 50 pushups/30 sit-ups /8 lifts in 25 sec/ 16 line touches. any help would be great... I did suck wind on the step test but I completed it.

                            Just Google the CBP pft 1 scoring sheet and calculate.

                            The step test knocked me out although I completed it. We didn't get much of a break between sets, maybe 1 minute max so it was a 10 minute blitz. Made me realize it is time to up the cardio routine dramatically moving forward.

                              Excuse me, but I have worked both borders. I worked in PCS at a major SWB POE. It was the same thing there. Stamping and doing the same thing over and over again.

                              • I took my PTF1 yesterday (1-9-14) and I passed. For those all who are reading you have two week to complete the ptf1 after you get notified to take the PTF1. It too took my forever to contact that number. I suggest you just keep calling and calling. It took my two days to get through.
