      ELAC= Entry Level Assessment Center

      UD conducted one of these a few weeks ago, I'm not sure there is an ELAC scheduled for Special Agent positions (someone who is a current agent would be able to tell you possibly). The whole ELAC ordeal lessens the UD hiring time frame from 10 months down to 4 months.

        I just got an email about one being held in Maryland at the end of the month. Both UD and SA.

        • It looks like everyone got to this about there being an ELAC in late march for the DC/MD/NOVA area. One question though. I will know by Monday if I'm invited to take the exam but the email update was a little confusing to me. Can someone please clarify whether or not I am required to submit something at this point? I don't believe so but want to confirm.

          "You have met the minimum qualifications. Your continuance in the process is contingent upon further review. If you successfully complete the remaining reviews of your application, you will receive an email notification containing instructions and an URL to register for the upcoming Entry Level Assessment Center (ELAC)...."

          I'm also a bit confused about the ELAC and how it's different than the normal process.

          • The ELAC is the same hiring process, the difference being is that it moves faster than the conventional process. You could be scheduled to take the SAEE or POST test 1 week, a week later have the interview, and the week after that have the medical. If you were taking the normal process, there could be anywhere from 1 month or more between each of the hiring process steps. I know someone who went through the ELAC back in February, and started FLETC the beginning of March.

            • Thank you for explaining that. Makes more sense.

              • When does the physical take place? What are minimum requirements? Is it pass fail? I got the email regarding ELAC as well

                • Do they do ELACs regionally or is it nation wide?

                    • Things may slow down for SA side. New administration is cutting back on SS hiring. UD is the way to go especially if you're peaking your age cut off.

                          • Has anyone from the DC Metro area who was "referred" and notified they were under final review to take the ELAC heard back yet? They said we would receive a URL by 11:59pm on March 13 if we are invited to test.

                              Where did you get this info? I don't believe this to be true. There are many classes currently on the books for SA's.

                                it's true. Trump's new budget proposal calls for a down sizing of many federal entities. USSS being one of them. I spoke with HQ and was told that no new EOD's will be sent out until D.C. sorts out all this budget trash
