A basic application must be submitted to the FHP. If you meet the minimum requirements (age, education, citizenship, etc) then you take a written and physical exam, polygraph test, and have a medical exam and physiological screening. You also have to pass a background investigation. If this process is completed successfully, you may then be admitted to the training academy.
