Border Patrol Agent

Is the Pre-Employment Fitness Test (PFT 1) different from the medical exam?

Yes. Trainees are required to successfully pass a pre-employment fitness test (PFT 1). Administration of the PFT 1 ensures that all new Border Patrol Agents are able to meet the physical demands of both training and day to day operations. The PFT 1 has 3 timed components: 1) push-ups, 2) sit-ups, and 3) an endurance step test. Detailed information on test requirements, including the standards for passing and photographic illustrations of the tests, can be found by visiting the Border Patrol Fitness Requirements located on this web site.
