  • Hi all...my first post. I applied a while back and have gone through a few of the prerequisites. I passed the PFT-1, the VBT and SI, I took the polygraph a couple of weeks ago and the guy said there probably weren't any problems but is a 2nd polygraph fairly routine? Anyway, that's not really my question...

    The forms you fill out prior to the medical test, I mentioned a bit of hearing loss due to military service. (Actually I stated that I had a pending VA claim and among the claimed conditions were hearing loss). I think my hearing test results at the medical exam was pretty good. Well, they sent a letter stating that I needed to submit additional testing because I didn't meet the requirements.

    So my question is: In the letter they sent, they said that I can request a reasonable accommodation. Does anyone have any information regarding how a reasonable accommodation request is processed? Should I send it in along with my most recent hearing test or only if they come back and say that I still don't meet the requirements? Is a medical opinion stating that I can still perform the duties of the job despite the mild to moderate high frequency hearing loss? Or is just a letter requesting accommodation enough? Lastly, any suggestions concerning how one would go about wording such a request?

    Thanks!

      • Just got the call yesterday for my first poly! I'm a 14-1 applicant with Midwest region. I am in alabama now but was told if I was able to get to orlando between April 9-16 it would expedite my process. Waiting to get the exact date. The last thing I have done is my VBT/SI on 9-23-14. I actually forgot I applied till now.

        I am employed by the bop now and am happy at the thought to get back to FLETC for 6 months!

        What is the poly like? How long?
        Is there any hiring going on in the Midwest, like Chicago area?

              Dress like a professional.

              I saw an applicant came to the VBT/SI in jeans and dirty skateboard/Skecher type shoes. Needless to say he did not pass the VBT/SI.
