  • I’m not crazy but there’s no time on the Illinois agility test right?

      I'm not sure how the USMS does their PEB, but I know while working for the Department of State when we would do the PEB the Illinois Agility Test was timed.

      It’s not timed, but it measures your speed.

      Yes. It IS timed. Anything in the 16 second range is fine.

      I figured it would be. I remember running it in Iraq, and for my age group at the 70 percentile, we had to run it in under 16:59.

  • I got the call to schedule the FIT TEST on 6/8/2018 for the July academy, but did not receive the good news email, with the locations they are offering. That seemed odd to me to say the least.

      Same I actually got told to do the e-Qip and fingerprinting. But the lady actually told me she just wants me to update my sf 86 and prints weren’t required even after I got it done lol

  • Received the same notification for the FIT test on Friday. Surprised they're moving this fast. Someone mentioned this is the last academy for this year. Anybody else here anything?

      Yeah I have heard about the manpower issue. Hopefully this is the opportunity for some new Marshals to support the mission.

      This is the last class funded for FY18.

      Any clue when the next classes will start if July is the last one for 2018?

      There should be a class in October when they FY19 funding kicks in.... budget approval dependent of course

  • Does anyone know if the average time for BIs to be adjudicated is still close to a year? I know OPMs goal is something like 90 days but I’m pretty sure their average is much higher.

      The going rate seems to be between 12-18 months from investigation open to close recently, with a few people I know taking 24 months.

      Do they start your BI as soon as you submit your e-QIP and fingerprints? I haven’t been notified since I submitted mine.

      It goes in the queue as soon as the submitting agency sends the request to OPM. There is a review process at OPM before it gets sent to the field for actual work. Unfortunately the backlog has drug down the entire process but a requesting agency can make it an expedited investigation but they have to pay extra for it. I believe the Marshals did that with people they hired in last years cohorts but I'm not 100%

  • Passed FIT what next?

      What does the FIT test consist of? I cannot find anything on it anywhere.

  • Nope. Am I worthy?! lol just teasing

    • For those who have completed medical, what email address did you receive your medical exam notice from? I was told by OSP/Backgrounds to contact medical since I have not heard from medical yet. She said medical’s contact info is in the TO but I can’t find it. If someone could PM me the email address I’d greatly appreciate it.

        there was no email notifying you if you cleared. you would just get a call or email to schedule your FIT test.
        But if you need to contact them, here is the email
        [email protected]

        usaftacp812, How did you get OSP to email you back? Lol, they never respond back.

        C/ONWA1 I called the direct line for the person who sent me the original email instructing me to complete the e-QIP and fingerprints. Have to catch them at their desk in the first couple hours of the work day.

    • Got the good news email this morning saying that I'm eligible for the July academy. Gave me a few states and asked that I respond with my preference, no cities specified aside from D.C.:
      California, New Mexico, D.C., Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, South Dakota, North Carolina, and Arizona.

      Current Fed with clearance, no mention of the FIT as of yet.

      • Has anyone on here received a TO from April/early May? Also, does anyone know if they sent out failure noticed for February? I noticed no one posted a failure notice like some did from January interviews. I just thought it was strange

            no but judging by everyone getting there emails i assume i would be floating in line sometime soon. i did my medical back in april and no word since. dont have to do BI since i have a current one with my agency...

        • Ok yea, I got scheduled for the FIT tomorrow but never got the good news email either...hopefully soon! I had to update my e-QIP so we’ll see if that holds me up.
