Being an NCIS Special Agent is one of the most challenging and fulfilling careers in law enforcement. NCIS Special Agents gain broad law enforcement experience and are given responsibility early on in their careers. Special Agents travel the globe and may even be stationed aboard a ship. In-depth training, critical assignments, and excellent benefits attract the best.
As a condition of employment, all Special Agents are required to sign a mobility agreement. This may result in one or more overseas moves and periodic assignments within the Continental United States and throughout the Special Agent’s career with NCIS. In addition, Special Agents may be required to deploy on assignments to support military forces in high-risk environments. Special Agent mobility is necessary to accomplish the agency's mission and helps support individual career development.
As a condition of employment, Special Agent trainees must successfully complete the Criminal Investigator’s Training Program and Special Agent Basic Training Program aboard the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Georgia. In addition, Special Agent trainees are required to successfully pass the Physical Efficiency Battery and score at a minimum 25th percentile in each component area for their age and gender.
