Hello,

I am 19 and will be putting in my application as a Correctional Officer Trainee with ADOC.

I have a few questions and any information is greatly appreciated.

What is the written examination like?

I know the conduct the Written exam and the physical ability/agility test on the same day, but when do you take the medical exam?

What is the medical exam like?

Is a psychological exam conducted and if so, what is it like?

How long does the process take from the first test day to getting a job?
I know they are in desperate need for employees at this time.

Also, what are the best facilities to work with in the state?

Thank you very much.
