Video: Secret Service Agent Training

If you’ve ever watched the 007 series - and we’re sure just about all of us did - then you’ve probably dreamed of becoming a secret agent a few times in your life. The cool clothes, cars, and girls were all reason enough for all of us to act out our favorite scenes and steal the show away from Bond himself. What we didn’t think about, though, was the extensive training one must undergo to become one of these phenomenal super spies. No one is born with this secret agent talent so training - hard and extensive training - must be done to pull it off. If after reading this, you still want to become a secret agent, then read on.

National Geographic is airing a program called Secret Service Files, where you will be able to the see rigorous training Secret Service agents go through, including extreme driving training. Yeah, you’ll be able to see how these agents learn how to twist, turn, and jump at high speeds. There’s about zero things in the world that are cooler than that in our eyes.

The program is airing on Sunday, February 20th, 2011 and Monday, February 21st, 2011 at 8PM and 9PM ET/PT.

A little mention about the driving training is the only reason for this article landing on this website. But isn’t it interesting to know that actually they are legally training them to drive like crazy? And it may some day save their lives on job.

So that’s how those agents get trained. And it seems that driving like mad is actually part of their course. Definitely a useful one if you are truing to dodge bullets.

This one is an interesting series really, though I am hoping that they would extend the topics on the cars. And they might want to prevent the bad guys from watching it.

So where’s the car connection on this one? Oh yeah, some of the folks in the secret service department do use cool cars. And being in the service is a cool one in itself.

Cool, but it will be nicer if they at least feature some cars that secret agents use on their secret mission.
