    Thanks all!



    The format is...
    Line up
    Do Vitals
    Warm up & Stretch
    220 Yard dash (31 sec)
    5 min break
    Situps (Pass)
    5 min break
    Pushups (Pass)
    5 min break
    1.5 Mile (1 mile mark 7:22 1.5 mile 11:18)
    Short discussion while everyone waits to sign their paperwork.
    At my PFT2, I failed the blood pressure test, so I couldn't continue on with the physical stuff. Out of 11 people, one other guy faile too. I think in both of our cases it was due to stress or anxiety (being told I was late by the instructor as a joke probably didn't help ). Now I have to get it checked on 3 separate occasions by my doctor and I'm hoping to get scheduled on the PFT2 later this week to meet my original EOD of 8/22 at Yuma, AZ.

    Unfortunately I don't know what is going to happen because I can't get a hold of anyone at the Hiring Center. If anyone has insight on this situation, please let me know what to expect.

    Thanks for posting your times, now I have something to beat.

    • Seems like those that tested this past summer are EOD'ing super quick, and also not having to polygraph. I tested in April of '09, have no movement since my background was complete in January, and got a call a couple weeks or so ago to polygraph... Ugh...

        • Yuma sector or Yuma station?

          • Quick question, how much time do they give you on the artificial language test? I’m assuming it’s 2hours to answer 50 questions? I just took the practice exam and had 20mins to spare, I just want to make sure I’m on tack. Is this correct? I can’t seem to find this information online, for some reason.

              I'm pretty sure when I went to my test they made me sign a paper stating we could not disclose anything about the test.. But I will say it is down to the wire for time when taking the Artificial language test. Good luck, study hard

              • I highly doubt that the timetable is off limits; but, thanks anyways.

                    Just waiting on my BI to clear and a drug test to be scheduled. Good Luck to everyone. I noticed people taking the written during August have been getting a call to EOD in August. Hopefully those of us in October are next in line.
                    We have about the same timeline. It seems that about a month after the drug test you get the call. Keep chugging.

                    • hey everyone, I hope you can answer a question for me. I tested last August, and hit the TSU 7/27/2011 and I was wondering how long people are waiting after they hit the TSU? My geo is South Texas and I have a 94 rating. Thanks

                      • Can somebody give me some advise? When I filled out the eqip, it told me not to put anything before I was 18, and only put your work history 7 years back and residency. I have a clean record. but the IA ask me for 10 years of employment history in the first email. then i resubmit it, then second email 10 years of residence history ??? is she playing around with me or what

                          Nope, the instructions told you to go back 10 years.

                          • Hi. Just found this yesterday. I don't have my timelines like the rest of you guys, but I know all I need to get done is the drug test IAW CASS. How much weight does a VA Disability have as far as disqualification? I don't have a rating yet, but I did apply.

                              Check out the HonorFirst forums. I've seen people sit in TSU for only a day before they get the call. I would keep your cell close if I were you!

                                Agreed. The instructions in the TO email were pretty clear about going back 10 years on your work and residence history even though the form said 7 years.
