In addition, the department may mandate more professional standards not indicated in basic requirements. Every applicant is required to complete several procedures to graduate, including a written test that is used to determine an individual’s rank on the eligibility list. The highest ranked candidates will proceed through additional tests including a physical assessment test and an interview with an oral review board.
