Hello, I have been trying to gather as much information as possible about joining the coast guard and have a couple questions. I would like to get into AST a school but heard that there is a two year wait time for it, is this accurate? What do I need to do to get into AST a school.
A little about myself
-Age 21, 6 foot 6, 210 lbs
-Bachelors degree in Emergency Service Management gpa 3.98 as well as an associates degree in wildland fire managment and GIS
-Nationally registerd EMT, certified rescue diver
Most recent PT scores (currently working as a wildland firefighter hotshot)
-1.5 mile run 8:50
-52 pushups in 60 seconds
-64 situps in 60 secounds
I will do some specific training after this fire season in order to do well in boot camp. Just wondering what else I can do to get placed in AST a school as well as what a potential time line for it would look like.
Thank you very much for your time and any suggestions or information!
