* ''Anime/PrincessPrincipal'' introduces "The Farm" in a late episode. Only two of the main characters - [[BadassDriver Dorothy]] and [[MasterActor Ange]] - have gone through it however. That same episode confirms that Ange has been TheAce from the beginning.

* ''Series/TheAmericans'': The Center, the KGBC origin of operations, operates at least one, teaching everything from combat to seduction. Turns out the administration also lets the teachers rape the students. And the students are coerced into sex with complete strangers as part of their seduction training. Both Philip and Elizabeth go through this, and are equally traumatized, though in different ways. Later Elizabeth starts homeschooling Paige with this in mind.

* In the {{Discworld}}, the Assassins' Guild School rounds out the education of students on the Black with practical training in these matters. It is largely administered by Monsieur le Balouard, portrayed as a semi-retired James Bond who is keen to pass his experience in Flamboyant and Energetic Espionage to a new generation. Doctor Perdore, a far more shadowy member of staff, teaches in intelligence gathering and evaluation. In [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6093110/18/Clowning-is-a-Serious-Business Clowning Is A Serious Business]], we see a class of senior students being taught how to conduct an interrogation of an interesting person, whilst avoiding the somewhat ''inelegant'' and unproductive physical stuff. Assassin interrogation is rather more ''psychological''.

* One of the B-plots from Creator/TomClancy's ''[[Literature/JackRyan Executive Orders]]'' has veteran field agent (and resident paramilitary BadAss spook extraordinare) John Clark training a new batch of agents at The Farm to rebuild the CIA's HUMINT[[note]][=HUMan INTelligence=][[/note]] assets (read: agents) after years of downsizing in favor of SpySatellites and other technical intelligence gathering methods. Other books in the series explicitly state that this is his regular job: While he may be the CIA's go-to guy for 007-type missions, ops like that are not done very often.
