Some police academies may offer an enrollment option for individuals who want to attend at their own expense without the required appointment by an agency. These “Open Enrollees” may make application to the academy and must meet the same minimum standards as an appointed enrollee. Upon successful completion of the academy, an Open Enrollee is not a peace officer and does not have AZPOST certification. However, the person may be appointed by an agency after the complete background and hiring process if the person passes the AZPOST audit. Depending on the time elapsed since the academy, the person may be required to pass the Waiver test prior to certification.
