    Ice do (dhs only) opm-ero-10153339-mp-jal

    Anyone apply? How was the hiring process for any former PA's switching over to DO?

    Someone detailed it above, and the way it reads is OFO isnt excluded or 'not qualified' since the attendance of the academies it listed wasn't a requirement. Guess it makes them 'less competitive' in theory.

    Either way, can't wait to be offered Lumpkin again!!!

    Either way, current HSI, going to throw in on the ICE only. Will give up 1811 for hometown, if possible.

    They might send you to the academy as an 11. I dont understand why they open it up to DHS, but tailor the announcement to be immigration specific. To be honest, I'd rather have a new hire fresh out of the DO academy over any BPA lateral any day of the week. Keep on keeping on. It sounds like you have a good gig with OFO anyway.

    I appreciate your response, but after seeing your comment, I'd say OFO won't really have a shot. I just can't see a GS-11 Step * being sent to the academy. I'm sure it happens, but I think selecting No for that question will drop a lot of non-ICE/non-BP applicants down on the list.

    Any idea of when we will get our exam results?

    Sorry, when I typed that I had just finished a phone call with an old BP classmate who just got his EOD date from the last one of these DHS only announcements, and we were talking about how he doesnt have to go to the DO academy. So that is what I was thinking of when I typed that, OFO is a no-go for being academy exempt. Way I typed it makes it sound like you are ineligible, which is incorrect. My apologies thanks for pointing that out for anyone else who may read it,

    That question was in the DHS only announcement. Obviously, I selected no being in OFO, but how will that completely rule out my application? Granted, I may not fall under the best qualified vs those who have completed one of the listed academies.

    From the ICE ONLY announcement:

    Have you successfully completed Basic Immigration Law Enforcement Training in accordance with 8 CFR 287.1(g) and other applicable agency policy? This includes successful completion of the Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) Basic Immigration Enforcement Training Program (BIETP); ICE Detention & Removal Operations (DRO) Basic Immigration Law Enforcement Training Program (ICE_D); the legacy Immigration Officer Basic Training Course (IOBTC); the Border Patrol Academy; the combination of both the legacy Basic Immigration Detention Enforcement Officer Training Course and the ICE DRO Equivalency Training Program (ETP); the ICE Special Agent Training Program; the combination of FLETC Criminal Investigator Training Program and the DRO Equivalency Training Program for Special Agents (ETPSA) and for legacy US Customs Special Agents, and the ICE/Customs Special Agent Cross Training Program. Due to regulatory requirements, no other training will be accepted. (Note: Completion of training is subject to verification).

    If this was the same list that was in the DHS Only announcement (which it looks similar to the DHS ONLY announcement from the past), Customs is a no go (edit for being DO academy exempt. BP guys, at least in my experience and in the last one of these, can EOD with no academy.

    I applied. Currently an OFO K9. Still unsure if this gig is something I'd be willing to drop K9 for.

    I don't know a whole bunch about the DO position, but I'll go along for the ride and see what happens.

    Right, but its DHS internal, not just ICE, thats another announcement. I’m an 1801 LEO under DHS, however I do nothing immigration related, so it seems tbis is only targeting CBP.
