      I spoke with my BI February 12th and my background just cleared 4/27. Seems they’re working through them fine. I’m just awaiting my drug screening now.

  • I'm going to the academy in about a month, I saw a video of the Border Patrol Academy and was wondering if the drill instructors Raz you at the CBP academy as you get off the Bus like they do for BP.

    Thanks in advance!

      No. Things might have changed since COVID...but last I knew there was no "bus".

      No, the CBPO academy is definitely different than the BPA academy.

      Negative, depend on how you get to fletc, drive or flight, you check in at visitor center, get your badge, if you are fully vaccinated, you will get your red badge, meaning you can leave base, if not, just regular badge, you will go to your assigned dorm building, get with front desk to get your room assigned, on first day, you will meet with instructors in class, they will be yelling, itiminating you, make you run up and down stairs, snip picking your boot, the way you dress, make your class form up into squads, ... etc... Definitely fun... But nothing crazy like bpa or military welcome...

  • Latest update for those looking for signs of life in the process. Formerly hired by BP and resigned and applied for OFO in October 2020. Had everything transfer over except PFT and SI which are different. Passed both of those back in December. Had been awaiting Final Offer but was determined they wanted me to do the PSI despite my Poly transferring from my time with BPA. Just got notified I am scheduled for the PSI next week at which point I should be notified if they want me to retake poly and hopefully drug test date. Haven’t heard of any EODs offered since November but the wheels are turning again as far as Pre employment process.

    Good luck to everyone else in the process! I’ll post any updates I receive from here.

      • Does anyone know how caught up they are on academy classes? Are they back at full capacity? What class number are they on now and how many are they running a month? I'm supposed to be in class 580 with a start date of August 6th, but I'm trying to figure out how far out that will be pushed back.

          Slowly catching up, they have been running 3 facilities, GA, SC, and WV to clear out the queue, covid restrictions start easing up so... You may be delayed little bit but definitely not months like last years, ... Last i heard 564 will start in Jun at SC, maybe 1 in WV too, and of course a bunch will start in Glynco... Hang in there man, it comes fast...

      • Just got my email for my poly in CA. I'm an applicant from 20-4, I want to ask for advice from you guys. I know I'm getting ahead of myself with visions of the academy, but has anyone on here gone through some of it? I had a foot injury that may require surgery and I can still run and so forth it's just painful after a while. Not sure if I should continue or withdraw. Advise will be appreciated. Thank to anyone in advance - stay safe everyone

          Only you know what sort of shape your foot is in. Will you injure yourself further if you proceed with an academy?

          You most definitely will make it worse in academy. If it hurts to run after "a while," academy will really mess it up.

          JL85 academy does not consist only running (its everything... running,sprinting, fighting, tackling, handcuffing, alot ground work, etc...)... If you are in pain with only running, mostly you will have issues at academy... Depending on instructor, most will have you work your butt off, if you have surgery, how long does the recovery take? If it only takes few month to recover, i suggest keep going with the process, after passing polygraph, get surgery, you will have months for recovery,months wait for background, wait for eod, wait for academy... My Guesstimate, if you take polygraph tomorrow Jun 1st and pass, im guessing your eod and academy will be sometime 1Q 2022 if not longer (3 4 months if not longer background wait, 2 to 4 weeks for drug test, then more wait to get offer, then wait couple more month to eod, then wait for academy...you will have Plenty of time to recover from surgery....regardless i wouldn't withdraw from the process if i was you, worst case, you can ask them to hold off on your eod till you fully recover, most likely they will be ok... Even if they say no for some stupid reasons and withdraw your application, your background and polygraph are good for couple years, you can reapply then and have those checked off right away... Don't withdraw man, good luck on your polygraph and getting the foot injury taken care off....

            Negative in new york/jfk area. Still waiting, it sounds like they are catching up to the already scheduled classes though from the posts on here. Also most people have not really traveled in a year or so that should help the need for more cbp officers. Been waiting for a poly a little before summer of 2019. I just keep moving forward like I didn't get the job, I really want it don't get me wrong. Hope we both hear soon UchihaMadara.

            UchihaMadara My friend got the poly call for jfk recently. He was behind me in the application process by 3 weeks. His original application was prior to mine but he had to back out due to unforseen circumstances. Then he reposted around when I did. So new york seems to be moving alittle hope this helps.
