If you have applied to become a CBP Officer assigned to any of the more than 300 ports of entry in the United States under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection then you’re ready for the written test!
The CBP Officer Entrance Examination assesses your logical reasoning; arithmetic reasoning; and writing skills. Do well and you’re well on your way to becoming a Customs and Border Protection Officer. Not passing means a one-year wait to retake, so check out the Border Patrol Registration Package and PASS!
Your NOR (Notice Of Results) will give you both your score and the next steps to follow WHEN you pass the test. It will ask you to upload important documents to USA Test Manager. These documents usually include your resume; OF 306 “Declaration for Federal Employment;” CBP Officer Agreements; veteran’s preference documents, if applicable; and transcripts if you are using education to qualify. The forms can be found in the CBP careers website (www.cbp.gov/careers). Usually, you must submit all the required documents within two weeks from the date of your NOR.
Make sure that you upload your documents! Otherwise, the CBP hiring officers can’t process your application further. As soon as you have uploaded all your documents, your name is already included in the inventory for CBP Officers—this means that you become part of the roster of candidates who have the potential to be hired!
Now this is where getting a high score in the CBP Officer Entrance Exam becomes a great benefit. Those in the CBPO inventory will be hired based on their scores. If you have the highest score for the geographic region you are applying then you have a greater chance of being hired. Passing the test is the first step!
Now you’re ready for the background investigation, medical exam, and fitness tests so keep going!
