If you ever wondered how our nation’s Border Patrol agents get trained, you can find out how now! Business Insider takes a look at how agents are trained at the United States Border Patrol Academy in Artesia, New Mexico.
Before they serve in the Border Patrol, trainees must graduate from the Academy’s six-month basic training program.
While a majority of the training is focused on law enforcement operations, the Academy also emphasizes instruction in the Spanish language in order to enhance communication between agents and the people they encounter in the field.
