Good Luck! My one big piece of advice is to leave everything on the track. This is it. You can collapse at home later, just as long as you make it while on the track.


Love that advice, thanks man. I'll make it count!

I took a PFT in December. It was a group thing for sure. They kept us socially distant. For the sit-ups we put our feet under a fence instead of them holding. The run/sprint you had to stay in your lane. They had a good set up where I was. It was 28 degrees but a good setup. Looking forward to my pre-Q in some nice weather!

Had my Pre-Q today, it's a good feeling getting it out of the way. Looking forward to hearing good news from you Thursday. Best of luck.

Hello everyone,

New to the board here. Threw my name back in the process after failing P2 about a year and a half ago. I wish I had more insight into the contributing factor of me failing but regardless, my work/life experience has only gone up since then. I hope the restart to my process is quick and that I have much better success on my final attempt whenever it may be.

Just an update for anyone curious or going through the same point of the process.

I received this email, "Please be advised that the Phase II interview slots will be open on or about the first week of May for scheduling."

So I will the schedule for Phase II interview soon, I actually want to take at the end of May until the middle of June if possible. Going to have a minor surgery but do NOT want to drop out of the process.

The run continues to be the hardest part, but I also feel the most confident about improved performance on test day for it, considering my routine.


Nice!

For those of us who won't make it to the June class. The last 2 of the year are Aug 1-Dec 22 and Sept 26-Feb something (sorry don't remember the end date on that one).

Sooooooooo great information and gives us hope maybe we can make the September and those shooting for June (good 🍀 🤞🏾)

So I have my PSI scheduled as of last night.
Updated timeline:
Phase II - 10/15/19
CJO- 4/13/21
SF-86 Submitted - 4/15/21
PSI- 5/6/21
Poly- 6/8/21
Let’s keep rolling…. 🥁 🥁
PFT dates 7/8, 8/12, 9/9 (not scheduled) these are dates for my region

I have an active current secret clearance, military retiree(I know it has nothing to do with FBI process)

My question is based on the experience on this forum what are my chances (Jim Carey voice) for the September class?

Everything, except for the run, three times. I wrote a more detailed routine a couple pages back, but that's the gist of it. One thing I think people overlook is the 5 minute break. Acclimating yourself to recovery within a short time frame is important when bouncing from more anaerobic to more aerobic activity.

They won't start the BI until after the poly. Mine didn't start until after medical. I did the Poly at the beginning of March, medical was mid April and BI was the end of this month.... My AC seemed to say the time frame for getting into a class is highly dependent on how quickly you clear medical (typical is a month). So if I'm cleared medical by the end of May, that definitely gives enough time for adjudication before August.
Don't schedule the PT until you're told. You won't want to take it in July and then have to take it again before Sept class. Those dates could very well change too, so just wait until they say we need you to take a PFT because we are looking to put you in this class.

When I did it there were 6 of us taking it. They had us go in groups of 2. For each event with a 5 minute break in between except the 1.5 mile. That they had everyone start at once. We also used a fence to hold our feet instead of a person which I found really helpful. Felt much easier that way for me. Masks were to be on unless you were actively doing an event.

Great info. I was under the impression that you needed a Pre-Q PFT within 120 days so for anyone in the September (not grandfathered) would mean anyone after May 26 would be suffice.

You're correct. 120 days is accurate. It used to be 90, however, I would take it when they advise still in-case there is some unforeseen hangup. IF they are telling you the Sept class, they will likely have you do one in August. They do try to get it close to the call as people tend to pass the Pre-Q and get lazy before the one at Q. If it is any insight - I took one a month before hiring call with the DEA, as did everyone in said class, 7 washed out on the PFT at Q and were sent home in the first week. DEA does the SAME PFT, except they have 10min breaks instead of 5 with the same 12pt requirement.

Hey guys. Im a vet and about to graduate college here in a few weeks. I've been working through my resume and I have a quick question... is there a length requirement? I am basing mine of the template provided obviously, but im providing examples for each core comp. for each of my jobs and training, and its about 13 pages right now and im not done. Should I trim stuff down or is it expected to be a novel? lol. thanks all, looking forward and nervous for the process.
