Six months and $30,000 sounds about right or maybe even a little low for a US secret clearance. There's a reason they're estimated to be worth about $10,000 a year. Insanely expensive and time consuming to get.

(OP has mentioned in another thread that this was not a secret clearance, but very similar.)

Probably a level 5 or 6 certification of public trust.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
