Have you ever wondered what it would be like to train as an FBI Agent? The FBI’s Future Agents in Training (FIAT) program is inviting high school students for hands-on training and works to educate them about the Bureau’s mission.
On August 3-7 at FBI’s Washington Field Office in Washington, D.C. 16-18 year-old students will be able to learn about investigative techniques that include gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and working cases for the FBI’s criminal, counterterrorism and intelligence units.
Generally, each FIAT course iteration is a minimum of eight hours but can be as long as a week-long program with blocks of instruction and demonstrations at a local field office. Students are provided with several presentations on topics including terrorism, cyber crime, public corruption, polygraph exams, evidence response, SWAT, and the day-to-day operations of a typical FBI office. Students also learn from special agents, intelligence analysts, language specialists, and professional staff about investigative tactics.
Applications are now being accepted for the Washington FIAT event.
