FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say testing starts this week for anyone who is interested in becoming a trooper.

A statement from the agency says testing dates run from Sept. 25 through Oct. 11 to be part of a training class that begins in May for the top 90 candidates. Minimum requirements for applicants include a high school diploma or GED and three years of full-time work experience.

Requirements also include two years of military or law enforcement service, or 60 credit hours from an accredited college or university.

To take the test, applicants must apply by Oct. 8. Along with a written test, applicants must pass a physical fitness test, an oral interview, a background investigation, and psychological and physical evaluations.
