    Do you know if you obtain any college credits from FLETC that you can add to college transcripts ? It is possible to obtain 29 credits at many academy's on Long Island and NYPD

    thanks
    It's up to individual schools to give what credit they will give but many, if not most, will give some sort of accreditation.

    If it's college you're looking for, Champlain College offers something like 70% off to DHS employees. I think it ends up being 7K per year vs 30K. Champlain College's campus is in Burlington, VT. Plus, I believe they offer the same deal to your spouse and kids. There are other similar deals out there for DHS/CBP employees at other schools.

    You could jump into CBP, stick a few years in Vermont, pick up a degree for both you and your spouse...and then look to either relocate back to JFK or leave for NYPD.

      there was a sign up when i was at FLETC that www.ccga.edu would give you college credits for attending FLETC under certain programs. CCGA is accredited and part of the university system of GA

          It's been a year for me also. The port I applied to had a hiring incentive so they must have had a good deal of vacancies which is why I don't understand the slow pace. I have been waiting for the the drug test. Everything else was complete 3 months ago. I have a feeling there wont be any more spots left when I finish so I'll probably have to apply to another location. Good luck, I hope things pick up for us both.

          • Same, waiting on the drug test and PFT2. Haven't heard anything from my BI since the end of April so I can only assume the package is being reviewed, I hope... Getting impatient over here.

            • Good morning everyone.

              I'm new here. Nice to meet you guys and gals.

              I took the polygraph back in November of 2014, and unfortunately failed. I just a couple of questions:

              1. Can I reapply for the position in November of this year? Do I have to start the process ALL OVER?

              2. Last August due to squats, I've been having some issues with my left knee. It's not painful (though a little discomfort once in awhile), and it doesn't restrict me from doing squats at the gym, as long as my form is good. Sometimes there's slight discomfort, but it doesn't restrict from any other activities. If I do squat down, like squatting down to grab something, there may be a some discomfort. Do you guys think that will disqualify me from the medical? I can run without knee pain.

              Thank you guys and gals.

                I chose to accept their offer to EOD if I receive provisional clearance. I sent that form back signed yesterday & today they released my background investigation package to OPR.

                I just applied last month so I know I've a long way to go. Is the meeting with the BI way further along in the process like after they interview all of your contacts? Once they're almost finished?
                Did you receive a paper form or was it the electronic signature?

                  Sadly all your pre-employment steps would have expired.
                  Also when you disclose to MHC your knee troubles they will ask you to get your doctor's opinion of it and how it will affect your performance on the job. This extra paperwork will delay your medical for around 3 months.

                    Been sitting on my secondary medical stuff for five months now. My doc said I would be fine and signed off but the medical officer dealing with my app seems to be taking his time.

                    I reapplied to the 9 opening to see if that will get my process moving again.

                      Hey there. It was an electronic signature. Nothing special it seems. Everyone is asked to sign it.

                          Yessir that is correct. I applied to San Ysidro. 17-7 announcement

                          No I've not received a date for my SI yet. In-fact I had received no further communication since my medical exam on 5/18. So I sent an email to my client service rep at CHS & received a reply yesterday afternoon stating that the facility hadn't sent my results & that she was going to contact them to have it faxed over immediately. Frustrating to say the least.

                          I'm presuming that my PF1 will be next & then the SI after that.

                          How far along in the process are you? You're San Ysidro too? Which announcement?

                          I did the pft-1 on 05/26 got the green check mark yesterday on the cass system. That is very frustrating, I was thinking the same thing cause the system did not update. The only check boxes I have left are structured interview, drug, and background inv. And yup San ysidro
