  • Is there anywhere yet that lists the actual specifics of the new fitness requirements? Looks like the CBP.gov site still has the old stuff. I'm pretty worried that it includes pushups now... but practice makes perfect I suppose.

                    • I personally don't understand it, but they just opened up a CBPO position here in Kansas. Honestly being 1000 miles from the nearest border, that just doesn't make sense to me.

                      • So I was surprised to read that since I tested in December but had to turn down the TO, my test score sticks for this opening.

                          Airport.

                          International flights are probably very rare. Maybe 2-3 Officers working the port...at least that's my guess.

                            Just pointing it out.


                            One thing everyone may want to consider, writing haphazardly/nonstandard on this board may lead to poor writing and proofreading habits that might follow you over into the job. If people are always trying to write their best here and elsewhere, then they're less likely to develop bad habits they'll have to correct later on.

                              Kansas City International Airport has very limited international flights (though it's in Missouri). I'm not sure if Wichita has any international flights, but I'm guessing they are rare.

                                I couldn't find it anywhere, but how many push ups and sit ups do you have to do? I'm sure its easy but just want to know.
