are there any current inspectors on here or anyone else familiar with the process for new hires which already have UPTP from their prior agency? Will they have me go to my home office first if there aren't any upcoming classes in the near future? or will I just be held in a holding pattern and not get a start date until the next physec class rolls around?

To All,
Me and a buddy attended the San Diego job fair in March. We both were fortunate enough to get an offer. In addition, we have both done our Eqip paperwork and medical screen back in April. I am a service connected Veteran and he is a purple heart recipient but connected yet. He received an EOD last week, starting on Aug 10th in LA. Just some info on the process so far. I assume that bc I'm service connected it will a longer process for me.

Congratulations on getting picked up.... that's probably one of the quickest processes I've seen... I'm still waiting to clear.... Sept will be almost a year since I went to and got selected in Norfolk. It's getting really depressing. I've put my life on hold waiting for this Neverending process to end... hopefully things pick up for the rest of the guys/gals who have endured this painstaking process...
