Yes. You would still complete all the steps in our hiring selection process. However, if you have a current certification from another Texas agency, you would bypass the academy and enter directly into our Recruit Training Academy to familiarize yourself with our policies, procedures and paperwork etc., and then move on to the field training program. You may be eligible to begin employment at a higher step in the pay scale, based on your years of service. Please find our step pay plan under the Salary & Benefits tab.
