All eligible applicants will receive an acknowledgement letter and further information about the program within three weeks of submitting their application. They will be instructed to call a toll-free telephone number to continue the selection process. At this point the applicant will be screened for an interview based on his or her response to several questions about the applicant's willingness to participate in all aspects of the program. All applicants who successfully clear the interview screening are scheduled for a phone interview within five to six weeks of receipt of their application.
- If invited to serve or placed on the wait list, the applicant will have to respond within 10 days of receiving the letter by returning the confirmation form, a completed medical history form, and fingerprint card in a stamped, addressed envelope that is provided in the mailing.
- If an applicant has not responded by the date identified, the applicant will be disqualified and ineligible for service with the NCCC for the specific term of service that their application was submitted to.
