    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
    -15 pullups

    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!

    There is no testing or anything else to get placed in any A School. After you do a minimum of four months at your first unit, post boot camp, you put your name on the list for the A School list of choice. It may very well be a two year wait now, but these wait times constantly change. Sometimes they increase, other times they decrease. It's impossible to tell what the wait time will be for you.

    Hey Eli,

    My son wants AST as well and his recruiter had him test for it at the Athletic Club he works (worked) at... if you meet the standard you can ask to take it again on the first Friday PT test... everyone takes the standard PT test. He has been at boot camp for a little over a week now and I am going crazy hoping he did well with the AST PT test last week. Swim Swim Swim! That is my sons super power (lol) so I am not worried about that part. Make sure you are comfortable in the water. I am an old Army guy so that is the most I know but it is supposed to get you on track for the school. In the end talk with your recruiter... he/she will guide you. Good luck
