Physical Fitness Test - 1 (PFT-1)
Due to the strenuous nature of the Border Patrol Agent duties and the associated training programs, fitness tests have been developed and will be used to screen candidates for entry-level Border Patrol Agent positions. The Border Patrol Agent PFT-1 consists of three components: push-ups, sit-ups, and a 14" step test. You must successfully complete each component in order to pass the Border Patrol Agent PFT-1.
