    I thought this meant that current CBPO's have to take the tests also. Maybe I read it wrong. I know other agencies have physical tests every year for their employee's and thought CBP was doing the same. Did I read it wrong?
    I believe that is referring to the new hires going down. The letter stated the new curriculum would start on April 1st and the implementation of the new standards would begin October 1st.

    • I read it wrong. I am surprised that CBP does not have a set of standards for current CBPO's.

        Well of course they are gonna be happy! They can stay out of shape and not do anything and ride the new trainess fitness levels to LE status.

            Well i was only partly serious. There are many CBPO's who take care of themselves but i assume there are plenty of tubs who are gonna reap the benefits of the new standards.

              Please...

              Whatever the new standards come out to be, I'll bet $100 that current CBPO's wil be able to pass it at a higher rate than new applicants.

              Unlike most of the chip-eating, Nintendo playing applicant pool, most of us have been on the job and working out for years.

                I guess its a person by person basis, but i'll take $100 on that action. If you took 100 random trainees .vs. 100 random currents without hand picking them, i think the trainees would no doubt have a better fitness level.
                Okay, enough of that.

                      Engaging in gambling activity on a government computer is a clear violation of the information technology policy

                          • Does anyone know of a place where you can view upcoming FLETC class schedules,..or is that pretty much a hush hush kinda thing. Seeing as to how they form classes according to geo-pref it'd be kinda cool seeing when your area would be sending people to the academy

                              If such a place exists its news to me. Normally once youre hired on and are close to leaving for fletc, you'll get a class list that says who's all in your class and what port they are going to. But thats about it. It also says if they are male or female. Also very depressing...

                              • Ive seen on Honorfirst.com which shows a basic schedule for Artesia, NM FLETC for BPA. Thats what kinda got my hopes up. I searched around on the net but found nothing else....it would be nice though.Hey, a boy can dream
