  • Question. I passed my CBP test, the last announcement (received my results on May 1). Unfortunately, I failed the physical because I was unaware you had to do the lift test in a certain time, so I took my time doing it. I was very upset because I am actually in great shape. Anyway, I reapplied for the announcement this past time, about 2 months ago. Will i be eligible to retake the test? Or how would it work? Anybody gone through something similar?

        The lift test is a physical test where you left a 50lb object from th floor and raise it to a table about 3 feet away from you. You do this 8 times and must be done in a minute.

          It should probably be clarified since this is a Border Patrol discussion thread, the lift test is not part of the Border Patrol Agent PFT1. You would only do the lift test if you are taking the CBP Officer PFT1. The Border Patrol Agent PFT1 only consists of pushups, situps, and the 5-minute step test. The CBPO PFT1 has the same three components as the BPA one, however, it also has two additional components, the 50 lb. lift test and the side-step test.

          • Anyone know how long the testing dates are open? I want to apply to this announcement it says testing starts August 28. I will be out of town for 2 weeks for work during that time. This is the reason I ask how long testing dates will be available up to a month after August 28?

              I got an email today asking if I would like to EOD on a provisional clearance. I have 5 days to return the form back to MHC CBP.
              Mind you, I have not completed the polygraph nor started my BI.
              I got mine today. It's due back by next Monday.

                It seems like the announcement I applied for stated what the window was, but I'm not completely sure, since it's been a while. At any rate, I think the window was just about 2 weeks from the date that testing began. I don't know whether that's true for your particular announcement, but that's what it was for mine.

                  I got mine today and it's due the 11th. Anyone know what to expect after that?

                    I'm not sure what's the next step after that. I would assume, poly ?

                    • So...the pros and cons of the provisional clearance offer. Anyone know what they are? I don't want to rush into this decision without thinking through all of the options. I have until Monday to make the decision so any information anyone has about it will be greatly appreciated.

                        I hate to burst everyone's bubble about the provisional clearance. It will not make your process go faster, according to the lady I spoke to from IA. She said everyone was getting one, if they ever reach a point to utilize this option, they will.

                        I know someone who failed a polygraph and got a provisional clearance form 3 weeks later. 2 weeks after that, he 2as DQ'ed.

                          I would sign the provisional clearance, however the clearance does not really mean anything without a firm offer/eod.

                            • So I received the information earlier this week from MHC to start my E-Qip. During the registration process when it ask for my 3 golden questions (Last name, city of birth, and date of birth) I put all my information in and put "Unknown" for the city. I put in the Registration Code that they have provided me and after I hit submit it goes back to the previous screen and says login error, contact your supporting agency. Is anyone else having this problem or had this problem? I have contacted my BI via email and voicemail but hasn't gotten back to me.

                                Have you filled out an E-Qip request before ?
