I am currently in school for CF. I am still taking pre-req's and am now suddenly worried that the OWI I got a few years back is going to cause a problem... :oops:

Now with that thought in my head, I am curious if there are other offenses (non-felony) that would disqualify an individual from obtaining a career in CF. :?:

Why don't schools list disqualifying reasons when one inquires about a course in CJ?

if anyone can shed some light on this subject for me I would be greatful!
:)
thanks!

I would assume it depends on who you want to work for and the actual circumstances of your OWI/DUI.

I suspect it just wouldn't be practical. It's often hard enough for Student Advisers to know and understand the courses the school offers. Qualifications are far to variable.

I believe it's a reasonable assumption that anyone wishing to follow a career path would seek guidance from people in that field regarding particular situations.

These circumstances do not always disqualify one from a career in certain areas, but everything is relative and often subjective to the potential employer. The first step is to have a background check run against yourself to see what shows up. At what age did the OWI/DUI transpire and was it a one-time offense or are you a repeat offender?
