      • SHU- Thank you for that post. That just makes me more determined and motivated to becomming a B.P.A. I really hope nobody just takes this as a "job" but as a career move with such a high professional level.

I also agree it's a shame an applicant would argue with a BPA instead of taking and respecting their insight and advice.
          I agree.

              Thank you very much for helping us, taking time out of your day, and putting up with the more childish posters. Many of us here appreiciate the help you give.

                Some of the post academy tests are not easy. If you fail one you can retest but you are in a very bad situation if you have to retest. Even if you pass the retake you are going a get a very bad eval which is a paper trail to termination. Once you get out of the academy you are going to have 7 post academy exams in addition to the tests that your FTOs give you and the additional sector training. ...
                SHU, thank you very much for the advice and insight into what to expect after graduation from the academy in MN. Your advice has been close to the best I have read since I started the application process and following the two forums in Dec. 08.

                  • Again thank you very much for the great advice. Another question I haven't seen answered yet on the forum every cadet should know. How are we required to address our trainers and instructors? Yes maam yes sir, yes agent X, or yes Patrol Agent X? I'm sure we will be told the first day, but practing now will help commit it to memory.

Do not look into their eyes unless you are told to do so. Also when you stand at attention do not lock your knees back for too long. You will pass out if you have your knees locked to long. Bend one of them every now and again but do not move while you are doing it.
                              If I may add a little myself:

                              When going to building 25 (you'll know what I'm talking about when you get to ART), ALWAYS, I repeat ALWAYS do the above to anyone you see there. I had to go there every week during ops for administrative stuff for my class. I cannot tell you how many times there would be another trainee behind me, and while I would sound off with some volume and show the respect, the trainee behind me wouldn't and would get torn up. Bad. Funny stories for me to tell others, but you don't to be on the butt end of it.
                              "Officer, you are kinda hot."

                              "And you are kinda intoxicated."
