  • Does anyone know if the current written exam still has an arithmetic section?

    The current announcement doesn't say anything about an arithmetic section but the study guide still contains one.

              • When you do the month of OJT before the academy, do you go to the major port in your region or the port that you select for assignment?

                    Okay thanks. Yeah it didn't make sense to me if I was to be offered something like Orlando Airport, why I would go to the Port of Tampa to shadow officers. Plus, then I hopefully wouldn't have to relocate myself for a month.

                    Still would not want to sell my house and relocate my family until after the academy too.

                        • I noticed that too. Thats wierd all it says is "The examination contains the following (3) assessments: Reasoning Skills, Writing Skills, and the CBP Experience Record.

                          Can anyone confirm if this is a type-o or how they'll test for CBP Experience Record?

                              Plan on taking a 403b and you can invest as much as you want in that....

                                Yes. For the most part it means you are all done. Unless you haven't met with UR investigator.
