    • During your physical test, you will be required to do "steps". As long as you can pass that physical you'll be ok. The package they sent you has a CD that shows you what will be expected during the PT portion. Hope this helps.

      • Thanks for the response, prior Navy Le and now retired , I Really want this
        2nd career path. I guess when you want to serve your country again, "they just can't go quick enough". Besides that, I had no problem with PFT. I could've went for 10 to 15 more minutes stepping, but the music or ticking needed to change. could you exp[lain PFT within the FLETC...I know I have to run 1.5 in 15 what about any other specifics? I.E. Pushups,situps,curls....etc.. Appreciate response.

          Hey man, the PT is in 2 hr. sessions. warms ups, run the track or around the base, sometimes hit the weight room, alot of pushups, abs, that kinda stuff in the mat rooms. Nothing you shouldnt be able to handle.
          Good Luck

              • Anybody know if/when they are going to open the testing period back up for the job? The new 6C retirement has got me interested.

                      Have you met with your Background Investigator yet? Im not sure why I haven't had the drug screening yet I guess it is schedueled differently for everyone.

                        Capone, I am assuming you tested August 29th In Long Beach right??? Well so did I and guess what my Quals and BI are also still pending. I have the same exact status as you do.

                        How did your BI go? Is there any possible dirt on you? Or someone who would bad mouth you? I keep second guessing myself thinking that someone said some untruthful stuff about me and that is why it is taking so long. Maybe it is just the fed gov that is taking long and has nothing to do with us.

                        Hang in there and update me with any status changes and I will do the same for you.

                          I met with the background investigator AKA Mr. Sneaky on the 22th of November. The BI had gone around wanting to speak to everyone I knew for 2 weeks. After going nowhere he decided to meet me. The BI interviews the person first and then goes around looking for dirt hence reason for the nickname (Mr. Sneaky)

                          He sent all the paperwork by the 26th of November.

                            Your assumption is correct I did test at Long Beach. It’s nice to meet you, hope to work with you soon.
                            I also have a friend that’s in the same boat. I met him while I was there. I also know two other people that tested with us but have already started training at Long Beach/LAX and will start academy soon. One had an interim clearance and the other met with the BI a month before we did.

                            For your questions
                            My BI went very well.
                            Yes I have some dirt, and I have been totally honest about it.
                            Everyone has dirt, I think it’s the quantity that matters. I wouldn’t think someone would bad mouth you unless he’s your enemy but even then like I said quantity matters. If 4 out of 5 people said you’re an @ss then you have a problem but if one said something stupid you should not worry. Usually people say good stuff about you when questioned by an official.

                            Yet it’s the Feds like you said taking their sweet time not knowing how much this job really means to some of us.

                            I am trying my best to hang in there and will update you on any changes. I would send you my Cell # but we help others like us when we use the forum.

                            Godspeed

                            • Any extended BI's clear lately?....taking a poll....(nobody's done it lately, figured I'd ask)

                              • Still waiting, but at least I found out why. They found a criminal act from 1990, committed by my father, who just happens to have the same first, last and middle initial, so they blamed me. Now I get to fight with them over the shoddy work of their reviewer.
                                But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

                                For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.
