    Anyone have any good info on the post conditional offer process? I’m not asking for information you can’t disclose. I was told people that got a final offer in June were offered a January date. How’d that play out?

      If your asking the steps needed to be completed after COL, then its
      Medical
      Oral Psy
      Drug Test
      PT test (either as a recert or if you failed the first one)
      Poly
      BI
      You'll get the call contingent on completing the BI and passing everything else (and hiring panel), or if youre given an interim clearance while waiting for BI to finish.

      I appreciate the response. I’m familiar with the process. I guess I’m inquiring more about the time frame it’s taken other people to complete the remaining steps. Also, I was told that no matter what I’ll have to take the PTT 30 days before an academy.

        Oh okay. Thanks.

        I haven’t reached out. Just trying to wait patiently. Just hard when every other state is processing candidates as quickly as they are.

          No I was in Louisville. Sounds like the south is moving people quickly though. The north east guys aren’t being processed fast at all. I as well
          Have medical scheduled next week and psyc the week before Christmas.

          Dallas is pretty quick (if you go MAC route) up until the poly...been waiting two months to even be scheduled for it. Huge backlog because there is a shortage of examiners

          Ya I here is the same problem they’re having with background checks. I think most people will be granted interim clearances.

        Hi and hello, long time Viewer, Im attending the Tampa MAC, any suggestions or tips on any exams ill be taking?I have a question has any one failed the MAC and then got a chance to re apply? The reason I ask is because this is my law enforcement job I'm applying for. and I'm not sure what I will be looking or tested for. (Yes I know about the PT exam)

          They should have given you a packet with sample questions and explanations of each portion.

          Did the study packet help or did you use something else? Congrats by the way!

          Thank you, very excited to move forward.

          Study packet just explains what the test is and doesn't really do much to help prepare other than to let you know what to expect. It's similar to other law enforcement written tests in some ways, and different in others. Sorry if I'm not much help, don't want to breach the NDA I signed regarding the test.

          I wish. Not yet, my recruiter is waiting on HQ for examiner info since there's such a shortage

          That’s what I figured. Everything has been so quick I’m not surprised the polygraph is where it slows down. I updated my eqip in July so whenever I get the invite I just have to make a small amount of changes and hit submit. With how many classes they’re planning on running this year I’m interested to see how they’ll get everyone scheduled for the polygraph in time.

      • First time posting. Have completed everything but the poly and still waiting on Equip. I currently have a TS clearance. Spoke to dc 3 weeks ago and was told I was in the background phase. Not sure how cause I haven't received equip yet. I attended MAC in Aug. Are they granting interim if I have current TS and how long does it take to get equip email?

          I too am just waiting on my BI. They spoke with my last 2 jobs and some of my references but there has been no word in the last few weeks. No one has contacted my current job or myself.

          Yes you will get interim. They're doing that for most applicants, especially if you have current clearance. You entered the background phase once your recruiter sent in your prints. Pretty sure this is a formality though because I'm pretty sure OPM doesn't really do anything with your file until you get the eQIP and fill it out.

      • Applied 3 months ago. Emailed recruiter 2 months ago for update. Still pending review.

          • For those who haven't heard anything since submitting their COL docs, I called HR in DC today, and they said there are still many applicant files waiting to be reviewed by a specialist before they move forward with the process. Things have slowed considerably since the MAC for me, but I'm glad to see others are moving faster (at least up until the poly).

              Nah, still waiting for medical, too.

          • How long does it take to get equip email? I have been waiting for a little over a month since they started my background according to DC. I know it varies by individual just curious what others timelines are. Thanks

              Yeah it's pretty variable. I was told technically your background starts when they receive your prints that you did with your recruiter, which was back in August for me. Just received my eQIP link last week so it was a pretty good chunk of time.
