You need a current valid NPS level II Law Enforcement Commission to get hired... As far as I know UMASS Amherst is the only place to get it in Mass - basically a Part-Time Fish Cop Fed Academy. Costs about 2K or so and runs on weekends for a college school year. You can go to the UMASS Amherst Site to check it out. Having this lets the NPS hire you and see how you are before they spend any real $$ sending you to Glynco/FLETC.
