I'm 16-1 and agriculture specialists don't have to take a polygraph test.Also, you can be disqualified if they find something in your medical records that might not allow you to perform the job as they require,then if after one year of waiting you have not received the call, they will send you a medical recertification form that you will have to fill up.Basically, they want to know if you have had any change in your medical records since you were medically cleared.You may find this form on the CBP website.If there isn't any change in your records,it will only take like two days to be re-cleared. you are finally done with the whole process after you reach 63%.

By the way, there are only four academies each year,so I highly doubt there will be five academies this year.Unfortunately,we will have to wait until next year.

Yikes, next year!? For some reason I was quoted November on my initial email. This is a long process.

Maybe 18-2 applicants were told November?? Which now I see that it’s less likely that there will actually be an academy in September. It seems like they just give us a guess of when the next academy they think will take place.
I already had my interview for the background check a while ago but I’m still waiting for that and my medical to get cleared.

I think you might be right about that. How did the background interview go? I am still waiting on my medical results the background check.

They just go over all the information from your e-QIP and they might ask you for more references.

18-2 here, nearing the end of my background investigation, already passed the drug test, medical exam, and VBT. My initial email quoted the ideal academy would be September if everything went smoothly

18-2 as well. Currently submitting additional medical paperwork. Just took drug test yesterday. Passed VBT. Background investigation hasn't started yet. I was quoted November for academy.

Hello all,

I am an 18-2. I’ve passed the drug test, VBT, and medical so far. My BI was turned in on Tuesday(yesterday). Now I’m just waiting to hear back from that. I’m not sure how long that will take. I was quoted November 2018 for training.

Am I the only one questioning the fact that 18-2 people are being told November for training when there are still 16-1 and 2 people waiting?

Purplepig, my guess would be that there are 18-1 and 18-2 applicants moving on in the areas that have openings and that the “16” people that are left do not have openings yet. Just my guess.

I don’t know what locations the 16-1/16-2 people are eligible for. As 18-2, I’m eligible for locations all along the US/Mexico border with September as my quoted date in the initial email
