The N.C. State Highway Patrol will host a job fair in Greensboro Friday afternoon.
The event will take place in the park lot of Dick’s Sporting Goods at 1208 Bridford Parkway from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Qualified applicants will attend a 29-week training beginning in May. It takes more than a year between a trooper’s application until they’re trained and on-duty.
Those who already have their basic law enforcement training certification can attend a shorter, 16-week course.
The base trooper salary is $34,000. Cadets are paid and receive benefits during training. The deadline to apply for the next training in the spring is December 31.
