How many times is an applicant required to travel to Fishers during the process?
A local applicant must travel at least 3 times to Fishers during the testing process. If an applicant continues to the last step in the process, he/she would have to make 1 additional trip. (written exam, oral interview, polygraph, physical/psych) If an applicant lives out of state, we try our best to cut down the number of trips made to Fishers by combining tests on the same days or weekends.
