  • Border Patrol Agent

    Hello everyone

    Does anyone have experience as a BPA? Day in the life, training, rumors, competency of the management, Pros, Cons etc...

    Thanks

    I agree with Charly, check out honorfirst.com, you will find alot of useful info on the forums there.

    On an unrelated note, Charly, do you mind if I PM you with some questions on your agency?

    Thanks

          Just took the BPA exam this morning. Pretty fun, kind like doing a crossword puzzle.

              If you like to get sweaty and dirty, run around in the dark, and get paid to off-road... you will truly enjoy being a BPA.

                I take the test on Friday March 28. Not looking forward to a 4 hour test of fill in the circles.

                How was the test ?

                  Not all that bad. The first section of the artificial language test, the section where you have to select the correct word(s), is very time consuming. The subsequent sections arent that bad.

                  good luck

                      I found the test to be quite easy but it is much harder than most entry level police tests. Go over the study guide that will be mailed to you. If you struggle with that then make sure you take your time and study hard. Otherwise just familiarize yourself with the format of the questions and go back and check your answers after each section of the test. Good luck on the test and the rest of the process. It can go very fast with BP. I was hired in 3 months.

                        I was watching a cnn news clip about people putting up thin metal wires for the purpose of decapitating BPAs on ATVs.

                        Some crazy stuff

                            Congrats! Keep us posted on your experiences in the academy. I hear that the BPA academy is no joke.
