      once you submit the E-qip you can't access it anymore unless they send it back for corrections. and when they do you can probably reset your password or just tell them you forgot it and they will help you.

  • 12/15 applied 18-3
    1/10 tentative selection notice
    1/11 eqip sent in
    1/31 medical taken

      mine was on 9/25/17 nothing yet, email from medical said we received it but will review it when its turn.

  • Has anyone here transfer announcements and have their completed phases transfer over? Wanted to know how that transition was and how did it reflect on the CASS website/App. I'm 18-2 currently and completed Eqip,Medical, and Fitness and for 18-3 had my score transferred over but I am still waiting for my tentative selection notice/ Applicant ID for 18-3.

      And some are ahead of the game I know if they are direct hire or sign a preclearance waiver.

      Most of my stuff carried over from a previous application so you can't really go by my timeline

    no clue, we were talking about the fitness test.

      Sorry, asked the wrong person. Was trying to get info from the person who commented on your thread that is at the academy right now. I practiced for PFT-1 but ultimately got it waived because I applied under VRA. Good luck with the rest of the process.

      That's probably me. Can you run the 1.5mi in 15:00 or less? If you can do that, a 220m sprint under 45secand the push ups you'll be fine for FLETC. Nothing you do down here is very hard PT wise.

      it was me... and I echo what ES90 said

  • To anyone looking to get hired ASAP:

    if if I were you, I would consider also applying to the Border Patrol Agent vacancy as well. It’s been a while since I got hired (2011), but patterns show that people who apply to both usually complete the process for both quicker than applicants who only apply to OFO. This is due to the fact that MHC would usually choose background investigations to start for those applicants who applied to USBP first due to the increased hiring push for PA’s.

    When my BI began, I was called by MHC saying it was for my BPA application. My case also showed that only my BPA application status had a BI in the process, whereas my OFO application did not have a BI in process. Immediately after my BI was completed and approved, it automatically went to my OFO application. Then within the next 3 weeks, I got called consecutively for my PFT 1, Medical (OFO), and Oral Board. Then about 1.5 months later I was received the job offer and was in Pre-Academy before I even blinked.

    Moral of the story: even if you don’t want to work for USBP, you should still apply because there is a high chance it will speed up your hiring process and get you the job of your dreams. Also gives you training and experience with job interviews and processing. I don’t know how it is these days, but back in 2011, the oral board for US Border Patrol was 50 times more intimidating than the OFO oral board.

    Feel free to ask me questions. Good luck.

      I actually took both exams and only passed CBPO somehow. So as much as I would love toooo...won't happen

      Eh, I don't know about this.
      I applied last April. I scored 95+ on both exams, slammed the poly in one go, and got through the rest of the pre-employment steps in 3 months. I also applied through VRA announcements.
      The field portion of my BI started in October, and I met with my investigator in mid December. I'm still waiting for it to clear.
      Admittedly I have a good bit of foreign travel, foreign contacts and multiple addresses in my background, so I didn't expect it to go quickly.

      If you have a simple BI with no issues and you've been in 1 job in 1 place forever, yea you'll get hired quick.

      I got a 73 on the CBPO exam and I never got a score back from Border Patrol exam.

  • for those US Customs Officers in the forum, do you have to provide your name or badge number when a citizen asks for it??
    Go wildcats!

      Why? Why not?

      One's last name should be prominently displayed on the uniform. Badge numbers are not openly displayed.

      If my last name is not sufficiently satisfying for the public, I'd send them to speak with a supervisor. If he wants them to have my badge number, he can give it to them.

    any chance you are going out for the NY/NJ area?

      Negative. Even if NY/NJ were my only options, I wouldn’t take them.

      CG1790 why?

  • Hello, everyone. 17-12 VRA here. I am waiting on polygraph and signed the provisional clearance form. The big issue is that I have a bad eye sight, real bad. I Got my vision done and it's not 20/100 uncorrected. I am more than willing to do the Lasik (setting up the consultation appointment after this). Anyways, I was wondering if anyone had the same issue and how they went about it. Thanks!

      Not really the same circumstances, but I asked about having Lasik done while in the process of waiting. I was told there must be a 6 month healing period after you get it done before you can accept any offer from CBP. For example, if you got the call 3 months after getting it done you would have to reapply.

      I don't have 20/100 but I was accepted due to a doctor's note and previous work experience + 20/20 vision with glasses

      you will have to wait six months after lasik. i got mine done long time ago. 20/20 and 20/25 in the other but sometimes it can test 20/20.

  • I had a similar situation. My uncorrected vision was never testef during the exam. A few months after my exam,MHC sent me a request for my VA disability info and a form to be filled out by my eye doc. Tested at 20/150 in one and 20/200 in a other. A week or so after I uploaded the forms, my medical showed green in the app

      I think the request for more records and eye exam really slowed my progress. I applied on 8/1, took my SI on 11/7 and finally got my poly date for 2/20. Other people in 17-10 are way ahead of me.

    haha yeah man, I just didn't show up there and demand a CBPO fitness exam. They had asked you when applying what areas you would like to perform these phases in so I chose Newark because I live there.
