        No joy on the search. What is CITP? What benefit does it give you within the Service or other fed agencies? Thanks.

          CITP=Criminal Investigator Training Program. It is a basic LEO course for new special agents. The majority of the 1811 agencies send their new recruits through it before agency training.

          The benefit of having CITP is that it makes you more marketable for other 1811 positions because the agency doesn't have to send you through again.

              ICE - You guys get a ton of lateral apps from USSS guys? I know USPIS got buried last year for the lateral announcement.
              Yeah, a lot of USSS have been coming over. We have gotten some ATF, IRS, DS and a couple different IG's as well but the Service seems to be the most common.

                    • Greetings all. I've been lurking here for a while now, just reading and waiting. I just got my TEA results today and found that I passed, so I figured I'd make myself known. I applied during the September 09 announcement and took the November 09 TEA. There's been a lot of great info on this thread that's been a lot of help.

                      • Just got my TEA results today, and I got the call for an initial interview, but I had to turn it down. I am on official travel orders for the 7-9th of next week and they wanted to interview me on the 8th. I am freaking out because I don't want to blow the opportunity. She said she would call back tomorrow with another date. Do you think she will? Anyone else have to turn down their initial and be rescheduled?

                          Don't sweat it. They called me while I was out of the state on vacation and gave me 2 days notice for my initial. Obviously, I had to reschedule for when I got back in town. They were really cool about it.

                          • Just got an email approving me to be scheduled for my medical. I still haven't received a call from the BI or a letter after my poly, so I'm still holding my breath. But having some movement is kind of nice.

                            I had a question about the medical to those who have been through it. Do they test flexibility? I'm pretty stiff but not too bad. If anyone could tell me what to expect, I'd appreciate it. And the second question is should I wear a suit/tie? Might be a dumb question but I've received some good advice on this forum so I'd figure I'd throw it out there.

                              I had my medical about a month ago and it was pretty standard stuff. I did not wear a suit and tie, they told me dress casual was fine (slacks and button up shirt). Expect lots of vision tests, so get as much sleep as possible the night before and rest your eyes. Lots of other stuff, but nothing you should have difficulty with. As far as stretching goes, they just make sure you can bend your joints properly, no sit-and-reach or anything like that though. Just don't be in a big hurry, you'll be there for a couple of hours.

                                Consider that a good sign. If you didn't pass the poly they would have stopped your medical from being completed. They wouldn't waste the $ on the medical. They don't test flexibility. Its the basics.....eye test, hearing test, breathing capacity, blood work, etc. I wondered what to wear too. Its done at a regular medical facility that had nothing to do with the USSS. Mine was at an occupational health section of the local hospital. Basically, I'm trying to say that it really doesn't matter what you wear. I wore a pair of khaki's and a polo shirt. The only people that see you are the nurse doing your test and the short talk you'll have with the doctor.
