|First, I should go ahead and say that being a SEAL is probably out for me...I have MVP and Autonomic Syndrome (Dysautonomia), which is an adrenaline problem where my body produces enough adrenaline for 4 grown men...it is forbidden (as in, I can't enlist) by all military branches. I could lie to the MEPS doctors, but it's not worth it...Hell Week would probably aggravate my MVP causing chest pains, and the lack of sleep would cause my body to speed up causing anxiety attacks (from the Dysautonomia)...I would hurt my boat crew and cause them more pain. That is why I am now focusing on SWAT (I know this is a military forum, but I believe that a few of you guys are on various police forces). Now, to the questions:
1) What kind of selection process would I undergo after I apply for SWAT (I believe I have to be a cop for around 4 years)? How long do they usually last? What is the wash-out rate?
2) What are the typical Fitness tests that have to be passed to gain entrance?
3) What is a typical day for a SWAT unit?
4) What kind of training does a SWAT unit undergo on a regular basis?
