Im scheduled to take the cjbat next month for  FHP and i have a few questions 1.is it a test i would have to study for? 2. once i pass the cjbat and p.a.t  and make it to the interview or whatever phase is next , i have 2 assault with bodily injury charges that were dismissed and got a general discharge under honorable conditions for the situation which i was charged for because of a bad marriage, in which my counterpart got addicted to crack and long story short i was put out after 5 years, but besides that my record is good to go and  a 1 or 2 speeding tickets. 3 my credit score is not the best its above 500 and thats all ill say, with that record would i be wasting my time to even attempt to become FHP?

You've definitely got some baggage. Give FHP a call and ask them directly...

Yes, get it out in the open immediately not to waste their time nor yours. Keep in mind other applicants will have a spotless background.

 Like everyone has been saying, this would be a good time to sit down with the background investigator and have a chat.  The only question I can answer is with the CJBAT.  All of them I have taken there really wasn't anything to study because it had to do with common knowledge and memorization; and the memorization is on the test not a study guide.  But once again check with the PD and see what they have to say.

Call this number 850/410-3046 this will get you to the main office here in Tallahassee ask for Lt Stone he is a recruiter he can answer all your questions. You can order the cjbat test study guide off the web I would recommend studying its easy for some tricky for others.

Another thing about your credit score and I had a problem with mine is find an agency that will consolidate all your debt into one payment. Add the paper work to your app, this will show that you are making effort to resolve your debt.
