    Benchpress 85% of bodyweight.
    There's also a mention of a 6 man team having to carry a stretcher 5 miles on rough terrain.

    Can you confirm or deny this information as accurate?
    It is kind of like the difficult military schools... they smoke the **** out of you before you even do the tests. I have seen some people that were in very good shape fail out of Borstar... if you are training for that, focus on cardio, not weight lifting....

    • Got a question. I am a NB applicant so I've resigned to the fact that I may have a couple years wait until I get the call. I got a TO from the BP at the GL-5 rate. If I take a job with the BOP and am there long enough to get promoted to GL-6 and then the BP calls me would I go back down to a GL-5 in order to take the job? Or will the BP give me a GL-7 slot?

        • Thanks SHU, thats good to know. Do you think I'd make it to a 7 step 3 in just a couple years or were you just using that as an example?

          • Thanks BigPat. Luckily for me I have however much time it is until the next hiring announcement, plus the amount of time to get to Artesia, then plus 2 or so years to get through the intern program and probation. Plenty of time to prepare. I'm fortunate.

              If you start as a GL-5 with BOP, after a year you will be a GL-6 step 2, and after a second year you will be a GL-7 step 3.

              Also for those that are waiting, I saw that BLM has an FCIP announcement open for law enforcement officers (1801).

                In the past ~4 years, anybody who had 2 years in could get a transfer up north, because they needed the numbers, and many people were stuck upside down on houses in the southern border areas and couldn't move.

                Then they started the northern border intern program. That changed everything. Most of the northern border stations are full now. The only way people are getting up there right now is by promoting up there as supervisors. If you really want to go to the northern border, apply for a NB announcement. Since hiring there is attrition only, it may be a while if you even get hired. If you choose to apply to the southern border, you need to realize that you are not going up north anytime soon. If that idea is not something that you can deal with, then I suggest not even bothering to apply.
                I wasn't really planning to apply. I'm colorblind anyway.

                  • That's about the smartest thing I've heard about him doing in a while. Maybe there is potential.

                    • Here's an article I found about it. Basically saying they will bring on 1000 new agents as well as roughly 150-200 ICE agents. Should be interesting to see how it pans out.

                      • When they say they want Ice "agents" do they mean ERO or HSI?

                        • It didn't specify. Most newspapers are probably not going to differentiate.
