      Welcome to the federal government. All fed agencies do.

        Are you planning on doing illegal activity if you get in? Or are you thinking about lying up front?
        Honestly, I'm no angel and I may not get in, and if that's the case I will walk away with my dignity, knowing I disclosed eveything upfront.

          did I say anything about doing anything illegal? I don't know if you'll be able to pass the written test since you don't know how to read. And second I have already had my BI completed, and I am in TSU waiting for my EOD.

          • Though many federal positions are supposed to get 5 year reinvestigations, I know several feds who haven't had a reinvestigation in nearly 10 years.

            • I was wondering if theres anyone here that was or is a prior CBPO and jumped shipped to BP? I was wondering whats the process like seeing that you are already working for DHS and have passed a BG. Can you test out of spanish and do you attend another FLETC academy? Ive heard of some CBPOs jumping ship can get into a BP academy thats already a few weeks into training..

              If you have any info about this please PM me thanks!
              What if quotas did exist?!

                Pretty much the same as a street hire. They may use the previous BI or require an update.

                Can you test out of spanish and do you attend another FLETC academy?
                Yes and yes, in beautiful Artesia, NM.

                      I fixed your post.

                        By three weeks into the academy, several subjects are completely finished. Not to mention you will be removed from training after missing 24 hours of training or after non-participation in PT.

                        Retreads and previous BP Academy graduates also have to attend the entire academy if they left before reaching the Journeyman level. The only exception are for trainees that are being recycled into a new class (usually due to grades), without leaving ART, but even those have to join the class during the first week.
