    Thought I'd post my full timeline for all the new applicants. I applied in 2020. Two nuggets I'd give everyone take the interview/PT seriously that part is back to back so be ready for a long day. And the medical/Poly is either in Los Angeles, CA, or Atlantic City, NJ. The expense is on your own dime so factor that in.

    App - 9/20

    Met App Req - 10/20

    FAM Battery - 10/20

    Field Office - 10/20

    Field Office Assessment - 12/20

    Ref for Hiring - 12/20 - 3/21

    Selection Decision - 3/21

    Conditional Offer - 3/21

    SF86 - 4/26

    Med/Poly - 8/10

    Final Offer - 9/21

    Good luck to all the new applicants!

    If I remember correctly, you will be required to wear something that can cover them while in uniform and Pt gear. Like under armor etc.

    Well I think none of that applies to me cause on the last app it said I wasn’t even qualified which has to be an error cause I hold a masters and 2 years in local LE.

    Any FAMS part of the 2017 hiring process know the tattoo policy in both Artesia and Acy?

    "Applicants who applied to the FAM-F21-F001 Job Opportunity Announcement (JOA) should note that assessment results (pass or fail) will carry over to the hiring process for this hiring effort. Applicants may not re-take the FAMS Assessment Battery or Panel Interview in order to improve the outcome of previous results."

    I assume those who passed both would just get scheduled for the PT test since that portion was separate from the interview (even though it was part of that same day)?

    Hopefully none of the following applies to anyone looking to reapply since the last announcement:

    Applicants will not be eligible for consideration under this Job Opportunity Announcement (JOA) for the following reasons:

    If you have a Fail/Denied Pre-Hire Adjudication from TSA Personnel Security within the previous two years of the closing of this JOA (9/28/2021).

    If you have a Fail result from the computer based test, the Federal Air Marshal Assessment Battery (FAB), within twelve (12) months of the closing of this JOA (9/28/2021).
    If you have a Fail result from the Field Office Panel Interview within twelve (12) months of the closing of this JOA (9/28/2021).

    If you are over the age of 37, or reach age 37 at anytime during the process, and did not provide proof of employment in a Federal civilian law enforcement position covered by Federal civilian law enforcement retirement provisions. (NOTE: Preference eligible veterans are permitted a waiver allowing for entry on duty prior to their 40th birthday).

    Good luck for those who reapply. I look forward to seeing some more new faces. The FAMS has been a great job.

    Gonna put back in for this announcement again. Hopefully I get picked up this time around especially since the locations offered are pretty good. Anybody have any tips/advice for advancing in the hiring process? Thanks.

    Another listing just dropped

    The mission of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Law Enforcement/Federal Air Marshal Service (LE/FAMS) is to promote public confidence in the security of our nation's transportation domain. To achieve this mission, LE/FAMS deploys Federal Air Marshals on U.S. aircraft both internationally and domestically to detect, deter, and defeat criminal, terrorist, and hostile activities that target our nation's transportation systems.

    If you’ve been vaccinated to attend grade school and college you shouldn’t have any issues.

    I’m prefacing this with “unless things have changed”

    Highly recommend buying your own boots. The ones they issue are garbage. I had Under Armour above the ankle mid-rise. I think the only requirement was they are all black. I still have mine (years later)and wear them frequently.

    Just remember you’re going to do everything in your boots, from standing still to running. So they should be comfortable, don’t try and go cheap.

    Not sure what the FLETC Artesia requirements are now, but if you’re allowed off base go catch a high school football game, go to Roswell, and visit the Carlsbad caverns.

    The local Ford dealership is the only place in Artesia that rents cars and they have like 5. So if you need one make sure you reserve it weeks in advance.

    Walmart in artesia will be your best friend.

    If you can’t get bottled water, then yes buy a brita filter.

    Adobe Rose is excellent food for the area and right outside of the FLETC gates.

    Make sure a small group in your class grabs a pavilion right after class on Friday while the others go get food and beer. Otherwise border patrol will take over everything.

    Regarding PT. You’ll probably have scheduled PT sessions 2-3 times per week. The type all depends on your instructors. My instructor loved to run so we went on class runs like 80% of the time. You’ll have time to workout and use the gym at FLETC and ACY. Both facilities have their own gyms and you can use both. Once at ACY though I went to a local gym (retro fitness) and negotiated like a $20/month rate for
    the time I was there, because once I was “off base” for the day I didn’t want to go back for any reason.

    Just be in decent shape when you go. You’ll have easy PT days, hard PT days, occasional “smoke sessions” and tactics classes can get intense at times. I’ll try to post more organized tips in the coming days, but right now it’s NFL Week 1 so time to watch some football.

    Any current/former FAMS have recommendations/tips for FLETC/ACY? What to bring, what to emphasize etc? Also what’s the PT like? Do I/will I be able to workout on my own?

    between old posts on this thread and the fletc cancellations thread, besides basic packing list things, I’ve read to bring your own above the ankle black boots and a Brita filter for water since we will be restricted on site.

    also quick question on the boots, can they have a mesh toe box or does the toe box need to be complete leather/pleather? Also how strict are they about “above the ankle”…. I have a pair of mid rise boots (Salomon xa forces mid), would something like that be ok or are they looking for a high rise?

    Wanted to come on here and add a post with it being the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Usually I post tips and things to expect through the process of becoming a FAM, but today I wanted to come on here and post about perspective knowing some new classes are about to start the process of becoming a FAM.

    20 years ago this agency didn't exist. 20 years ago 9/11 changed air travel and changed the world. Some of you who are about to embark on FAM training will learn more about 9/11 than you ever knew. You'll carry around a badge daily on your job with symbols reminding you of this day.

    You'll also be reminded by travel/leisure journalists, flight crews, Congress, and I'm sure even some former FAMS rolling their eyes at this post that your job isn't important since there's been no attacks since that day.

    But it does matter. It matters because if a FAM ever stops even one attack it will make all the money the agency has ever spent worth it.

    But I always viewed it as more. I remember one of my very first flights overseas. The lead flight attendant came up to every FAM and thanked us. She told me she was based out of Boston and knew every pilot and flight attendant on the flights that flew out of Boston on 9/11. She said "Every time I see you guys on my flights, I'm so thankful. I know you'll never let what happened to them happen to me, and it makes me so much more comfortable knowing you're here." That put it in perspective for me. It was something I always though when on a boring 14 hour flight sitting by the bathroom on a full flight, or watching drunk passengers act like idiots. Just remember there are people out there who appreciate what FAMs do, and that will make the job worthwhile.


    and Never Forget those who gave their lives 20 years ago today.

    A lot of people are going to have to make a decision. Either cave in and get the vaccine or forget federal LE and pursue state/local LE in a place that outlaws vaccine mandates.
