Kelly’s Answer

Hello Justin,

Several years ago, I underwent a multi-faceted process. It began with the submission of an initial application, which was followed by a trip to a federal testing center. The tests there were divided into different sections. One part was similar to the state-mandated tests you might be familiar with, where you're required to choose the most suitable word to complete a sentence. Another part, as Ruby mentioned, involved identifying specific objects within an image. If you've had prior field experience, this task should pose no problem.

During the interview phase, you'll also be evaluated on your ability to recognize and identify different colors within the spectrum. A good number of applicants successfully navigate this part, but the real stumbling block often comes with the medical evaluation. If you have any medical conditions, ranging from migraines to disabilities, they'll refer you to their specialists and request your complete medical history from your doctors.

Unfortunately, the timeframe given to gather these documents often expires before all the necessary paperwork can be submitted or approved by all parties. If you delve deeper into forums dedicated to the medical testing requirements, you'll begin to understand the challenges many applicants face.
