The Department is NOT recruiting for Wildlife Managers at this time.

 

   

SELECTION PROCESS
Those applicants meeting the minimum qualifications and position criteria may be scheduled for testing and an interview. 

Applicants who are successful with the polygraph examination and the interview will be given a verbal conditional job offer.  These applicants are expected to attend the additional testing (medical, psychological and physical fitness) that will be pre-scheduled. Applicants not given the conditional job offer will not attend additional testing.

Final selections will be made upon successful completion of the tests and interview.  All applicants will be notified once final selections are made.

TESTING
Polygraph
The polygraph examination is used to verify the truthfulness of the documents completed and submitted by the applicant, as well as the applicant’s verbal statements.

Medical
The medical examination is performed by a POST certified physician and consists of two parts – the blood/urine testing and the medical exam. It certifies that the applicant meets the prescribed standards for the job.

Psychological
The psychological fitness evaluation relates to the applicant’s ability to perform the duties of a Peace Officer.  It consists of a written examination and a personal interview with a psychologist. 

Physical Fitness
After passing the medical exam, applicants are tested on a 1.5 mile run, 1-minute push-ups and 1-minute sit-ups.  The 40th percentile on the Cooper Institute for Aerobics Research Physical Fitness Norms should be met or exceeded.  The Arizona Game and Fish Department does not assume responsibility or liability for any injuries that may occur during this process.

Below you will find a copy of the fitness norms to compare your results to.  If you are able to function at the 40th percentile upon entering the program, you will lessen the degree of stress, mental and physical, experienced during the academy training program.
