  • ATF SABT - Experiences?

    Hi, everyone. Like many people, I'm interested in applying to be a Special Agent with ATF. I've already been to FLETC CITP, so I have a bit of an idea of what to expect with that and will likely be exempted from having to go again. But, for those of you who have been through SABT within the past few years, what was your experience like?

    I don't recall seeing many SABT classes around campus, so I'm wondering--how physically demanding is the academy? I've got no concerns with passing their standard PT test, but absolutely LOATHE running. No matter what shape I'm in, running is just awful for me and I only do it to maintain a half-decent 1.5 mi time.

    Please share stories, and let me know if you've attended other academies (FBI, USMS, USSS, etc.), and how it compares. It seems like some academies are paramilitary, while others are totally chill. Thanks!

    Got a buddy doing ICE ERO academy and he always says the ATF are always blowing **** up. You can hear literal explosions. And the only ones marching around doing paramilitary crap at Glyncoe is Customs.
    Current BPA. LET ME OUT!!

      Oh yeah, CBP definitely still marches. And pushes their way onto the shuttles. And commandeers the fire pit every weekend.

      No hating, but man... they make some of the other agencies afraid haha

    Saw them around while I was going through CITP. They had mandatory PT in the mornings that was CrossFit based, I only saw them outside doing a slow run once or twice? They were pretty relaxed going to and from places as well.
    God never promised that it would be easy, just that he would be there with you every step of the way.
