    Yep, usually two weeks so if you don't return them they can move on. Really shouldn't take you that long. Just take a day and work on them.

    • Is the wait time for PRK eye surgery a year or 3 months? I heard people said 3 months and others said 1 year...I hope its 3 months because PRK is safer than Lasik.

        • Got my VBT on Nov. 5th. I realize that it's definitely a different format than a traditional interview. Stressful or no?

            I hope not. From what I have read on this message board, all you need is common sense. I also hope I am getting one soon, I took my test on Aug 21 and got my TO on Sept. 23 and just finished my medical and fitness last week. Anyone with a similar time line got their VBT yet?

              I have same timeline except I tested in July. Expecting sometime soon to be scheduled.

              • Hey guys, this question has probably been answered already but I could not find the answer on the previous threads. Which pay table does CBPO falls on General or Law enforcement ?

                  We are GS, not GL.

                    Most of the August testers are basically at this point. I just know of the few posters here (seem to be the guy out of Hawaii and some LA/LB applicants) have gotten their VBT scheduled. I'm scared that I will be the last to be scheduled since I'm somewhat far away from any PoE. The lady at the staffing unit told me no big deal though, I mean that is the advantage with a Video test. You can do it anywhere you can stick a camera on a tripod basically.
                    "Officer, you are kinda hot."

                    "And you are kinda intoxicated."

                      • What is the policy on facial hair? Only reason I ask I saw a video with a CBPO with a beard. I don't mind it....

                          Solid,

                          I went through that. I took my eye exam with that machine with the circles 10 days after Lasek. I couldn't see very well yet either. I swore that I could see the breaks in the little circles but I was consistantly wrong. Anyway....They were nice enough to let me take a regular exam with a regular chart a few days later after I stressed to them how important this was to my potential employment.

                          I still have my forms from the Medical Unit so I looked it up for you. You will only have to wait the 3 month period for PRK. RK is the only surgery that has to wait a year.

                          No stress. If you are like me....you were freaking out just like I did when I thought that I might have to wait another whole year.

                              Thank you so much! I feel so much better now. I wish the medical place i went to was that nice. The nurse there refuses to let me retake the vision test and I don't know why. I hope the medical unit understands and let me retake my vision test after my eyes are fully healed. Thanks again!

                                You should definitely call them about it. I am not sure, but I think they don't check qualifications until near the end? My qualifications are still pending but my forms are cleared.
