      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.

        Comment


        • 19-2 here. Just a quick update:

          I resubmitted my eQIP 5 weeks ago (April 5th). CBP Hiring Center submitted my background investigation packet to the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) for higher level review. Still haven’t heard of an update or anything.

          how long does it usually take to hear something back from your case manager? My CASS is at 50% with a blue “i” and in progress on both background investigation and drug and 3 days and pending for polygraph and final offer.

            You aren't going to hear back from your case manager. Normal - anywhere from few weeks to a year for you to be scheduled for your polygraph. No i'm not kidding, I wish I was.

        • Hey guys, I have a question.

          On Saturday 5/4 I received a call from the hiring center and the gentleman told me that my EQIP was ready to be released to OPR and I needed to verify my it and resubmit, as it was outdated. I did that on the same day and added some additional information. I still haven't received notification that it was released and it is not reflected on CASS. Do you think that adding that additional info will cause it to take longer?

            email your case manager he/she will be able to help you with your concern.

        • Hey 18-8 guys, have y’all done your poly yet?

          Comment


          • Hey guys 17-10 here waiting on BI. Just one question I recieved an email to recertify my eqip which I did and updated any information that they needed the same day. My question is does the investigator call and meet up with you before starting any field investigations or do they go right into it....??

              I passed my poly on Friday. I hope they take my background from the current federal job. It’s a secret clearance and it cleared like 4 months ago.

              Yongky Sunyoto No, once you failed you gotta wait at least 2 years before you can reapply. I took it 5 times because all 4 times were inconclusive.

          • CBPO DH 19-8, tested on Monday 5/6 and received word this morning I passed the entrance exam. No LE/prior military experience, cyber security.

            • Now that I revised my resume I received my NOR and eligibility notice for a gs-5 CBPO position. What comes next after the notice of referral and how long should the next email take?
