How long does it take for a military security clearance?
Can anyone give me an average time frame between when I hand in the signature page, and when I can get my training dates? It's a maintenance job, so its not a top secret clearance, just a regular secret clearance. Considering this is a person to person thing, if there is no "average" time frame than how long did it take for you? Or anyone you knew that has one.

There really isn't a set time frame...it differs for each person and how swamped DSS and OPM are in investing clearances. Summer is usually busier. I had my TS done in a couple months, but it takes some people up to 3 years to just get their secret.
