Lansing, Mich. – The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is seeking candidates for its Conservation Officer Recruit School, a 23-week training academy that is the first step in becoming a conservation officer. The application deadline is March 1.
The DNR is an equal opportunity employer and encourages diversity among its applicants. During the academy, recruits become state of Michigan employees and are paid biweekly. After graduation, they become probationary conservation officers and spend several more months training throughout the state before being assigned to one of Michigan’s 83 counties, in which they will live. A detailed guide to the application process is available at www.michigan.gov/conservationofficers. For more information contact Sgt. John Meka at firstname.lastname@example.org or 517-284-6499.
