Former Seasonal Protection Ranger at National Park Service
over 1 year ago
The National Park Service (NPS) has certain education requirements for different types of jobs. Relative to the job you’re looking for. Interpretation would require a bachelors degree in biology, geology, or other life sciences. Sometimes they’re flexible if you have prior relative work experience and a certain amount of credits in those courses. Volunteer work is huge with the NPS as well. That would be my biggest advice is to volunteer with a national park to gain experience and connections.
For law enforcement it is a bit different. Along with education and experience, you will have to complete a seasonal academy listed on this website: http://www.anpr.org/Seasonal-Law-Enforcement-Training-Program. I went to the Slavic Valley College program. Additional information can be found on here as well: https://www.nps.gov/aboutus/workwithus.htm.
