  • Got a call from a background investigator this month. (Already did poly, and drug test).

    I feel like I'm going to be the oldest guy in that academy class, whenever I do go. Got to remember to take Icy-Hot... Gonna need new shoe inserts too... Sigh...

      Historically for CBPOs, 38YO trainees weren't very old at all. These days, you probably still won't be the oldest one there.

      38 is still young... 52 was the oldest in my class... we had a few 40s too...I was 35 when I went thru Academy, The 52yo earned my respect, he had bad knees, bad shoulders and he pulled it thru... you will be ok. BlueLou

  • I’m 20-3 and waiting for final offer , 33 right now but I’ll be 34 when I get to FLETC I also think I’ll be one of the old guys

      Nahh your fine. When I attended FLETC for my AMO academy, I had 2 guys over 50, and about 9 over the age of 40

  • Prior military people essentially have a limitless age waiver. Currently 12D covered people would be waived for their stored-up years. The rest have until age 40 to get hired.

    • Can an academy GS7 graduate swap ports with an Officer that is lets say a GS9,11,12? I'm slated to graduate in April & would like to know if its possible to swap soon after?

        The probable best answer is maybe. Lots of things "can" be done if management is on board with everything.

        I wouldn't take advice from someone that has spent 25yrs in federal government and still being "told" what to do by management...

    • Is the applicant portal down on CBP website? After I entered the login information, I received an error message that no access token received.

        I can confirm I received the same error, just now.

      • The website is still down. Is everybody moving along in the process ok?

        I did my poly on the 19 and was told I pass. On 23rd, I receive from the back office stating I pass and no further testing needed.

        Submitted E86 form today, the 27th. I hope everything goes well and pass the background phase. I look forward to receiving the final offer. I am so nervous.

        How is everybody doing? Have you heard back from the background..anything?

          I also had my Poly this month on the 10th, 5 days later it updated on the Application portal stating (pass), but I’ve yet to receive the official email saying I passed. I just sent my E’Qip to get re certified. All I need is to meet w/my BI & a drug test & im done.

          So i did my poly in july. Few days later i got my pass email. Background contacted me in aug but didnt start till sep. Took 3weeks~. They had multiple investigators on my case to help nyc applicants out cuz BI is backed up for nyc. But imo i think it delayed a lot cuz i got call by multiple asking about the samething.

      • Thanks for the replies guys, just got an e-mail saying that I passed the poly and no further testing is required.
        waiting for the next step…..

          How long did you wait to get the poly appointment?
          I been waiting to be scheduled for the poly for 1 year +

      • I Got the call 9-22-21 from TSU. I was offered to California and Arizona first which have incentive pay. I declined those and because I applied with a VRA application I was offered 8 other states. Because ive been monitoring the traffic on facebook I knew which states where being offered so I didnt ask which ports in each state but the states offered where
        California
        Maine
        Michigan
        Minnesota
        North Dakota
        Vermont
        Washinton State
        Montana
        Since I had already been investigating the states I already knew which port I wanted and so ill be reporting to Michigan in January 2022.

        EOD January 4 2022
        Fletc January 20 2022
        Graduation date May 25 2022
        ill be in class CBPOBT - 585

        I was able to choose to go as early as October but I chose to go in January to start the year off and have time to save for the BIG move since in live in Texas.

          There are a couple of groups , im not sure if the names but theyre have CBP in the name. Lukeville was the one in Arizona but I don't think it had incentive pay. I was investigating the 8 states homeschool policies and their covid mandates

            @instanbul52 Same here, I still waiting for a poly but I haven't received anything. At the point in time I'm willing to take JFK and la Guardia or Newark airport.

        • thats correct

          • 19-3 NYC, waiting on poly since April 2019. 2.5 years+. For those who are still waiting as long as I am, stay strong. For those that got scheduled and are moving on with the next steps, congratulations and best of luck.

              We will eventually need to retake the medical once all is said and done as I believe the medical is good for two years

          • So someone yesterday got the offer and NY was on their offer , Arizona positions seemed to have been filled already since it wasn’t offered
