  • Hi All

    Hey, I am new to this board... I took the CBPO exam in 12/08... I have passed all of the necessary steps so far and just met with the BI last week. I have no idea when the BI will clear but I was just wondering if someone could tell me what the following abbreviations stand for and what part of the process they are:

    TSU
    EOD
    FLETC

    Also, when I took the exam, I had signed up for posts in the US Virgin Islands. Does anyone have any idea what the likely chances are of getting there? Also, is there another class that starts in August? If so, the heat in Georgia must be unbareable! No? Ahhh!

    Thanks,
    Garrett

        • Well guys, I got an email from IA this morning to call them concerning my BI. I called and the lady asked when my shoplifting case was because my investigator didnt write it down or something. So I told her it was when I was about 10. THen she said everything is great and thats all she needed and she will clear it and her supervisor should clear it this afternoon then off to HR it goes.

          I asked her how long she's been on my file and she said she didnt know.

          Hope that helps/eases someone out there. I know I sound like a wuss but Im hoping they'll send me to EOD in like mid Aug then FLETC in mid to late Sep so hopefully the heat'll ease up a bit.

            Give it at least 30 days to go through everyone and then show up on CASS. The "clear" she mentioned was finishing with your file, they are not allowed to tell applicants their suitability findings, but if you never received a NOPA you should be good to go "NO WORRIES". You might get your wish of heading to FLETC after August!...

                I think FLETC is going to be as bad as Basic.

                • Chances are, if you haven't been picked up by now, that you'll likely won't be seeing FLETC before September.

                      I was told to jump on it now. He's giving me between 30-60 days for everything to be complete. Also said it will look better when I meet with the BI.

                      I received a letter March 09 in the mail saying they may find me unsuitable without an explanation (was that a NOPA?). I replied back with my explanation (clarification) mid April. So its been about 30 days from when I replied to when I received a call last week May.

                      Can someone tell me the purpose of meeting with the BI? Is it so they can put a face to the story?

                      • I find it odd that my qualifications got completed before i got my VBT results and even meeting with the BI or even start my background.

                        Is there a reasonable explanation to that?

                            • Well, with the current news about a possible "Hiring Freeze", I was wondering if its still possible to receive a new TO if I reapplied under the last announcement even though I'm currently in TSU for Montana?

                                My quals cleared before my VBT, and i still havent met with a BI investigator. Im just waiting on my medical to clear, and hopefully the investigator will contact me soon.
