Question about transition from CBP to IEA
I was wondering if anyone knew for sure (seen it happen) that former Immigration Inspectors are skipping FLETC to work as IEA's? Im with CBP now, graduated IOBTC 2003. Its my understanding that IEA at FLETC is nearly the same. Has anyone seen any cases were a CBPO skipped FLETC?

All legacy immigration inspectors to my knowledge do not have to attend the IEA academy. It is basically a lateral transfer for them. I know of several legacy inspectors at my port that lateraled into the IEA position. CBPOs that did not attend IOBTC or legacy customs inspectors are not elibile for the lateral.

My diploma from fletc states that I graduated from the CBP academy (neither legacy Customs nor Immigration). Do you think I should go back to the fletc for the IEA school? Thanks.

CBPO's go back to FLETC for IEA basic training. Though, the hiring process might go quicker than someone applying from the outside the G.

cbp officer is right on the money. If you are legacy INS and attended IOBTC, you most likely will be waived for FLETC. If you are legacy Customs or haven't attended IOBTC, you will go back. As for "CBP Academy", I had a CBP guy in our class, he was the new breed that attended FLETC not more than a year earlier and still had go. He breezed through everything. You might want to contact TDF, he is/was legacy Customs and is at the academy now for IEA.
