    They will call you and give you an appointment that you have to show up for in 2-3 days. The drug test is the part of the process that takes the least amount of time to complete and get results for so don't worry about it holding up the process.

      Mine was the last thing that I did.

      I guess they wanted to give me a few months to clean up.

        Quals is the last thing that will clear.

        • I finally cleared background. All that's left is the quals which MHS contacted me about, hopefully working a F/T job for 7 years with in all sorts of different fields is enough. To this point, it's been almost 10 months since the written test.

            They had me do my drug test the same day as I did my VBT. So far the last thing I'm waiting to clear right now is my BI, But I meet with him tomorrow afternoon.

              Are you in process for JFK? How long did it take you to get a TO and what was your test score. Thanks.

                Drug tests are the same for all military, federal and law enforcement jobs. Completely random and could be initiated once in a career or every month. Ive had times in the militarty where my number came up 3 months in a row and other times not once in a year.

                  How would we know if you should be worried about your quals? You haven't provided us with any information about your job/school history. If you can do that, then we can give you a better idea.

                  Everything will say "pending" on CASS until you take that step and either pass or fail it.

                    I've just cleared the year mark 2 months ago since the written test. I'm still waiting on the BI to complete.

                    This process is probably going to take 2 years in full until I am a CBP officer, that's if I'm very lucky.

                    Did you go into TSU yet?

                      There doesn't seem to be any set order for things. My quals cleared pretty early on. I think they may have cleared before I had my med/pt test.

                      I'm still waiting on my med to clear since they made me go see an orthopedic surgeon because I go to the chiropractor.

                      Seems like my BI is on hold till the med clears.

                        Good way to look at it

                        just so everyone knows, when they pull you from TSU to take your med/fitness tests again you go back into TSU in the SAME ORDER you went in once you pass again - in other words, I am reinserted with the same date which is 3/26. You do NOT lose your space in line.

                          If your new to federal service, you'll have around 3 saved up. Your port may let you take a couple of more and go in the hole with leave, but that's between you and your port.

I wasn't planning on driving unless I could make some sort of road trip out of it, and was kind of hoping i could just get by without a car. I wasn't looking forward to the drive. My family said they'd mail me my bicycle lol (is mail even an option there?)

                            Not a drinker myself and i'll probably be hanging around studying or something.

                            Going crazy over here and it's only day 7 in TSU for LAX/LB

                            Trying to figure out which port I would prefer, if even given the choice.
                            Do not just hang out and study. If your become a dorm rat you'll drive yourself nuts. You need to get out and do cool stuff. We spent the 4th of July on Jacksonville beach, which is nice on the eyes. If you retain much from class, you won't need to study very often.

                            And as far as mail goes, anything you can mail, you can receive at FLETC. Or you can just buy a bike from someone graduating or you buy a cheapo at Walmart.

                            Remember guys, FLECT is not military basic training. One the class bell rings your free to do whatever you want within the bounds of the law and FLETC policies.

                              Quals are usually the last or one of the last things to clear. Like with anything else...it depends. There are almost always exceptions to nearly everything.

                              Unless it's cut and dry, quals usually wait until the BI is completed because the BI pretty much verifies the quals. Also, quals are done in batches rather than one at a time. People often sit a bit waiting for the office close down and switch into 'qual mode' for the day.

                                I have been in TSU for SF/OAK for 50 or so days, some guy on here 90 or so days for sf/oak.
