  • For those that go down to the academy and need to relocate, you will have accrued approximately 40 hours of vacation time by the time you graduate. If relocating, you will be afforded the opportunity to use that time to move if that's enough time. Most people arrange their housing prior to arrival at their duty location or during the month at pre-academy to ensure that they have everything squared away by the time you get back.

    • Question and pardon me if this may have been answered before but I opened my CASS this morning and I have a green √ next to my fitness and it does say "fitness test has been successfully completed" does this mean I passed or just that I completed the fitness test.....Also as for my medical I'm assuming its normal for it to say that it was sent to medical review for determination? If anyone can help with my questions thank you in advance !

          Green means passed and completed. The medical review is common; if you had any secondary blood work done, submitted info for any surgeries, or other odd stuff, you may be waiting a bit.

            GEO/Location: JFK....is that where you have been testing or want to go? I have a former co-worker that is in JFK, he mentioned to take any other location than JFK; however, this is probably do to the current management in place at the location. If that's the case, 2 years or so, new leaders will be in.

              most places are 1 to 3 years. I believe DHS is 1 year. No worries about failing the poly, happens all the time to the best candidates (really). you can take the poly one day, trigger a deception, and get kicked. take the same test the following day, same exact questions, same order, pass with flying colors.

                Thank you! Do you know to begin the BI if they will notify me or am I supposed to of found a link to begin the process already? On the CASS it says they have not received background investigation documentation which is required to begin the investigation. Does this usually say this or should I of sent something in already?

                  Most likely you've passed because they wouldn't allow you to do the SI and or the fingerprint. But as far as results i received an email the very next day at 4:00pm saying i was eligible and passed.

                      Welcome... and don't worry about this result and any other results in the future if it's meant for you, you'll make it through the end. All you can do is give it your best shot and hope for the best [emoji3] [emoji4]

                        It varies. I got an e-mail that night ( about 6hrs later), but it could also take a couple of weeks.

                          With the cybersecurity breach, I'm not sure if an email containing the link was provided or not. You can contact the number referenced on the usajobs announcement to verify this. Don't be afraid to call them, just don't call them every week asking for an update.

                          ps are you attempting to stay in texas? if so, try for the Houston sea port unless you are further north.

                            I always hesitate to call but I just don't want time to waste with the background seeing that everything is going so quick. As for me staying in Texas yes I am when I applied I chose the Pharr bridge which is 45 min from me so this is where I plan on staying.
