        id bust my *** back down, go to the academy again, and sign paperwork to stay at a 9 for life for one of those areas

          • I know that the posting advises that if you do not speak Spanish (fluently enough) that you will have to attend an additional language class after the academy. Can anyone shed any light on how extensive is the Spanish language course that you have to take is?

            • Guys a question if somebody can help. I just applied for the new announcement 15-3. I have been over the test, I speak, write and read Spanish fluently, do I have to do the artificial language test even if I speak it, write it, and read it?

              Thank you for your help

                One of the first questions on the exam is whether you'd like to take the artificial language test or an actual Spanish proficiency test in its place. If you pass, you'll be exempted from the language portion of the academy.

                  Thank you so much

                  I'm glad I don't have to do that

                    One more question, so what's on the test?

                      From what I remember, a lot it was grammar and reading comprehension (a lot of comprehension, double and triple negatives). At the time I thought it was a little difficult, but I ended up with a 98 after getting bored and clicking away.

                          The provided study guides are good indications of what may be found on the test.

                            Right you are, Reaper. (See what I did there?)

I'm assuming BI since I only completed an e-QIP for CBPO and my BI for BPA says it's in the security office. Anything else? Medical perhaps? CHS only scheduled me for fitness, no medical as of yet.
                                Polygraph counts toward both in case anyone is wondering.
