    The email that was mentioned earlier is an internal USSS email to the field offices that have an individual from their office going through the training course and is not distributed to the trainees. Emails for UD hiring do not get distributed through the official email because all of those names are selected by the UD chain of command at the UD hiring panel, and therefore that is the UD's official notification.

      Jimdvs,

      Thanks for the post--I assumed it was internal since all correspondence throughout the process is always phone or letter. Just wanted to be sure though. Thanks again.

          • Hello everyone and happy new year!!
            I am new to this board and found this board valuable to answering my questions. I have also recently submitted for the USSS as a SA. I haven't heard nothing yet, but probably due to the holidays. I hope. But one question I have searched and have not been clear on is the TEA exam study guide. Is there any study guides that are better than others? thanks for the input in advance. And good luck to all.

            • I used the "Master the TEA Exam" study guide from ARCO and really liked it. It was very helpful and also provides some good application material in it too. You can find it pretty reasonably priced on the web. I didn't use any of the other ones so I can only really speak to the ARCO guide.

                  • Has anyone heard any information on the next class or when the hiring panel will be meeting again? It seems like for the last class the calls came significantly sooner probably due to the holidays. Good luck to everyone.

                      My SAIC said he thinks the hiring panel will meet sometime in mid-January. My "call" was received roughly 30 days before my FLETC class started if that helps anyone in planning. Best of luck to all those waiting.

                            Nope no PT test for the SA applicants.

                            • While this is my first post on this board, I have been reading it for several months. I have found people's input helpfull as I have gone through the process. My timetable for the process is as follows:

                              07/07-Turned in application
                              08/07-Took TEA exam
                              09/07-Panel Interview
                              10/07-Medical Exam
                              Last week of 11/07-Took polygraph

                              My question is, how long has someone waited to find out they passed the polygraph. The examiner told me I would hear something in 4 to 6 weeks. The end of this week will be 6 weeks and I still have not heard anything. The longer it goes the more I am worried I did not pass. Any input or comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

                                The old saying is, "No news is good news." I never heard about my polygraph and was just called and notified my background was starting
