CHP plans to hire cadets to fill vacant officer positions throughout the state.

If you're considering a career as a California Highway Patrol officer, get your resume ready. CHP is holding a three-day application period — the second time in the last three years.

The online window to submit your application runs from 7 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 12 through 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, according to a press release. They are looking to hire cadets to fill vacant officer positions throughout the state.

“CHP is recruiting highly qualified men and women for the position of cadet,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow in a press release. “Broad based, inclusive recruitment efforts are underway to attract a workforce representative of the diverse communities we serve.”

From the CHP:

Minimum qualifications for candidates include: Must be 20-35 years old, a U.S. citizen, have no felony convictions, and be a high school graduate. Each applicant will be required to complete the entire testing process including a written test, physical ability test, appraisal panel interview, background investigation, medical/vision evaluation, and psychological evaluation.

Applicants who tested after January 1, 2013, and passed the written exam will be eligible to waive the written examination for this testing cycle. Applicants who are eligible to waive must still apply during the three-day application period.
