What Course Do I Need to Apply For CBSA Border Services

What Course Do I Need to Apply For CBSA Border Services

What Course Do I Need to Apply For CBSA

You must complete the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) and the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC) and pass the tests before you begin training. You do not need a possession and acquisition license (PAL). These courses are often referred to as the PAL and RPAL course.

Full details can be found at https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/job-emploi/bso-asf/selection-eng.html

1. Border Services Officer trainee entrance exam (OTEE)

You must write and pass a test that assesses the following competencies:

  • reasoning skills
  • writing skills
  • analytical thinking
  • client orientation

The results from the exam are valid for life, but if you are not successful you must wait one year to re-write it.

2. Interview

We will assess the following competencies:

  • dealing with difficult situations
  • decisiveness
  • effective interactive communication
  • judgment
  • personal integrity
  • values and ethics

The trainee selection process is governed by the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA). Under the Act, we are not required to provide feedback as part of an external selection process.

3. Firearms safety courses

You must complete the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) and the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC) and pass the tests before you begin training. You do not need a possession and acquisition license (PAL).

4. Physical evaluation

The Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation (PARE) assesses your ability to undergo physically demanding “use of force” training. You must complete it in 4:45 min or less. The test is made up of an obstacle course, push-pull and weight-carry stations. The first two stations are timed and the third is pass-fail. There is no waiting period to attempt the PARE again if you are not successful.

Schedule your PARE session at an approved test centre and cover the cost.

Your PARE results are valid for 18 months from the date of your test. We recommend that you complete the test and keep your results up-to-date while you have an active application.

5. Second language evaluation

Bilingual positions require a working knowledge of both official languages. You must be able to speak, read, and write in both English and French at a designated level.

If you get an intermediate level (BBB) in your second language, you will be considered for bilingual positions.

Results are valid for five years. If you have previously completed the testing, we will provide instructions on how to submit your results.

6. Psychological assessment

The psychological assessment evaluates your ability to deal with stress. This helps us determine if you are suitable to attend the duty firearms course, which is a condition of employment (COE). It is administered by clinical psychologists in designated offices across Canada. It includes two exams and a face-to-face interview scheduled close together. Results are valid for two years if you are found unsuitable.

7. Medical exam

A physician designated by Health Canada completes an Occupational Health Assessment Report. This Category III assessment evaluates your physical ability to perform the duties of a border services officer.

You must meet the following vision and hearing standards:

  • Vision: corrected vision 6/9 in the better eye and 6/15 in the other eye.
  • Hearing: no more than a 25 decibel loss (in the better ear) at a range between 500–3000 hertz.

The doctor’s decision determines if you are able to undergo “use of force” training and perform the physical duties of a border services officer. Results are valid for one year.

8. Secret security clearance

Due to the enforcement role of the CBSA, and the sensitive nature of the work that border services officers do, candidates must be able to get a secret security clearance. It is important to us that we hire the right people and it is for that reason that the security clearance is the longest stage of the selection process. In order to get a secret security clearance you must:

  • answer a range of law enforcement and security verifications
  • provide digital fingerprints (at your expense)
  • submit a form that includes information about your employment history, qualifications, references, and travel outside of Canada
  • pass a credit check
  • participate in a face-to-face integrity interview
