      Just got word today I passed the poly. I applied to 18-7. I was told the process should go really quick from now. I’m already a federal officer with a secret clearance so hopefully it’s quick

      BPO is 40 questions, short story read and answer the ? Pertaining to the story, it’s tricky so you have to take your time and take notes.

        Usually one year or as long as your application is in process.

        How long is the PFT-1 result valid?
        A PFT-1 Pass result is valid for one year, or as long as a candidate's selection for the position remains active. If a candidate receives a PFT-1 Fail result, the candidate can reapply and be afforded another opportunity to complete the PFT-1 upon selection.

      • What’s everyone’s backup plan is CBP doesn’t work out or takes 20 more years to move onto the next step? I’ve been looking a possibly BOP (Bureau of Prisons) just to get some LE experience under my belt... posting for BOP closes at the end of the summer.

          CBP is my backup plan. I'm also going through the hiring process with the Marshals. After my medical next week, I'll be at the same point in both processes, waiting for my background to clear. CBP is great and all, but there is no way I'm going to pass a chance to work for the Marshals.

          BOP isn't bad if you just want to get your foot into the door. I started at BOP.

          I'm currently in the hiring process with a Local PD to me... They will sponsor through the academy and have a reputation of working 4x harder than most departments. So 2 years with them would be like 8 at a slower department.

          So should make my next application, if it swings that way this time, look amazing :P

      • so i need advice, my medical clearance required me to submit additional info, i uses glasses which i can find eye doctor to check how much is my eye sight, but the other one is asthma, any idea what kind of doctor i need to seek out?

          Yongky Sunyoto I would say a pulmonologist. Just google that and the area you stay and go from there. I would do that as soon as possible because it takes approximately an extra month to review the additional paper work.

            I've decided you don't matter until you pass Poly everyone else is just a commoner - that being said back to being a peasant.

            If you already accepted the final offer for BPA they may not update CASS for another position...just a thought.
