      There's no need.

      Techs are more or less office workers. The most strenuous part of their job is likely to be packing away paperwork for storage or delivering UPS boxes to somebody.

      • So there was a CBPO opening that opened up a few days ago. Has that closed already, or is it still open and I just can't find it? I am trying to help my brother apply to become a CBPO and can't seem to find the opening.

        As for a few other people's questions about transfers and reapplying, I recently did that. I reapplied under the job posting in July 2014 and took the test in September 2014, got the notification that I was going to transfer ports at the end of January/beginning of February 2015. I report to my new port in early May 2015. It can be done, and its not hard, just retake the test.

        I've been a CBPO on the northern border for a while now. It is a pretty decent place to work. I haven't applied for any TDYs yet, but eventually I may.

        • Does anyone know if the CBPO's poly and BPA's poly can be convalidated for each other?

            • I opened my CASS today. Do you receive pre employment forms by mail? Also do they call and schedule medical?

                  OMG may God hear those words. I don't think pre employment has anything to do with the BI though. Not getting too excited. But thanks

                    Nothing that I filled out was received by mail EXCEPT THE FINGER PRINT CARD. As far as medical they do call and schedule you yes, it's an automated message info you to call to schedule your med/PFT1.

                    • Didn't somebody receive a certified mail the other day? I don't think he ever came back to tell us what it was.

                          There should be another announcement opening up in April.

                          As with pretty much everything else, relocating isn't a problem. ..unless it's a problem. Today, reapplying to an open announcement is a viable avenue to move elsewhere. Seven to ten years ago, chances are that CBP and/or MHC would have dragged such an application through the mud and would have done pretty much anything to legitimately deny such an application. Doors open...and doors close. Sometimes it's a matter of fortunate circumstances.

                          TDYs are a great opportunity, especially for those in less larger NB ports.

                            They should be identical.

                              I believe they are legally married to each other by the church of DHS, yes.

                              If you were hired to either before 2010 you would not have to take a poly to switch. If you were hired after 2010 and took a poly, it should still count. I have heard people who do this automatically get green check marks on CASS for BI and Drug Screen right away.
