      Im in class 551 with no date yet but my guess is that I will start the academy no earlier than feb 2021. so I would guess you most likely will not start until at least april, but who knows this is just a guess.

  • I logged into the EAS/cHSI website to check on the status of my medical exam last week. Next to the physical exam, the "status" says "insufficient".

    Anyone know what this means? I tried called but their phone system must be messed up or something. I'm hoping it just means they haven't processed it yet, but if something is messed up I'd like to fix it ASAP.

    • TsFost any idea if TSA completed background check would make CBP background go a little bit faster or it does not matter, am just wondering. Thanks for the info.

        So honestly I can't say or not whether it would help. I got through the process super quickly and was granted provisional. But I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it. I do know that the background investigation though for them was nothing compared to the background investigation for CBP outside of using an eqip.

        It does not help AT ALL.. I’ve been with TSA for over 7 years and have been waiting for the poly for about 2 years now

          Technically, for example my class 530 doesn't start till pretty much October after the quarantine and if you take into consideration all of the holidays in between the timing is correct.

          That's a little less than 5 months (including the 14 day quarantine).

          Where did you find this information? Is that the only classes listed so far?

      • My port hasn't said anything about FLETC dates at all but let me get ready and start packing if these dates are correct. Where did the person from the CBP Facebook page get his or her information from????

          This was posted on a Facebook page, Delphi Forum plus I received multiple texts of people sending it to me. Seems legit so I would probably start packing. Also from what I'm hearing it looks like it will be 4 classes every month

          Congratulations I was there at that step last year. All I can say as we all signed a disclosure not disclose any details do to privacy. Just use your common sense and you should be fine.

          the look: dress full suit, tie, everything... you want to look professional...you will be panel-interviewing with several Sup so you don't want to look sloppy going in. Be polite, I believe they also rate you on those things... The SI: use comment sense, care for others, safety for yourself and team,be ethical,follow the rules, the laws Wakelyk10 Basically, this is whats happening...if you are an officer, what would you do. Its not so bad, don't stress yourself out... Good luck

          GilE1788 what announcement are you in. Where did you select to have your polygraph exam scheduled when you first applied?

      • Anyone from the 20-4 announcement get the call?

        • Bought a good amount of stuff to hold me over during FLETC today. Packing up for my travel day in a week & 1/2. Tried to think about the essentials since leaving base to run to walmart isn't gonna be a thing for now. Here's a basic list of what I'm packing since i'm driving down (only about an 8-9 hour drive). Bought packs to make life easy when I could. I've got everything to fit in a small rubbermaid tote to make carrying easy. I have a ruck sack for my clothes and shoes.

          Black undershirts x10
          White undershirts x5
          Black compression shorts x10
          Black boot socks x10
          White crew socks x6
          Black ankle socks x6

          Laundry Detergent for dark colors (gal)
          Fabric softener (gal)
          Iron (the rooms have them but from my last time there it sucked)
          Brasso polish
          Kiwi shoe polish x2

          Deodorant can x2
          Deodorant stick x2
          Toothpaste x2
          Mouth wash (biggest bottle they had)
          Pack of toothbrushes
          Pack of razors
          Shaving cream x2
          Bug spray cans x3
          Big thing of baby wipes
          Box of band-aids
          Shower caddy

          - Stuff I already bought but will be taking as well

          Various clothes for after hours
          Comfy Pillow
          Nintendo Switch
          Percussion Massager (great for after a run)
          Hair Clippers for fades
          Knee compression sleeve (had acl surgery 2 years ago so still acts up some days)
          Boot shining kit
          5.11 Boots
          2 pairs of tennis shoes
          Resistance Band kit (up to 50lb bands)
          Laptop & Projector


          Now my question for those who have either been there or there now. Do I need to take my suit with me for any reason?

            You really don't need your suit. Just slacks and a dress shirt/polo on day one/two until you get your smurfs.

            As for the bug spray, Skin So Soft was the one that I found worked the best. YMMV.

            The gnats really aren’t any issue right now because it’s so hot. Otherwise, skin so soft works great, and so does the stuff the FLETC Express sells. You only need business professional the first day. Wearing a suit the first day will either get you called out for being the example or left alone. Instructor dependent, so you choose. They were ripping into the guys who showed up in “golf polos.”

          I am in Minneapolis so hopefully I get scheduled in the hiring center based here, I am guessing.
