Job Requirements

All qualifications must be met by the closing date of this announcement-09/22/2021-unless otherwise stated in this vacancy announcement. Credit will be given for all appropriate qualifying experience. For current Federal employees, if hours worked per week are not included on your resume, you must submit a non-award SF-50 for each federal position listed as part of your application to be used to validate your work schedule and determine the amount of qualifying experience that you will be granted. An award SF-50 will not be acceptable documentation for which to consider your amount of qualifying experience. For all other applicants who are not current federal employees, your resume must state either "full-time" (or "40 hours a week") or "part-time" with the number of hours worked per week to ensure proper crediting of specialized experience. Failure to adequately provide information needed to determine number of hours worked in each position may result in that time not being credited when evaluating qualifying experience. For periods of time that reflect military service, the DD-214 or Statement of Service is sufficient to meet the full and/or part-time hours requirement as the service dates will be reflected. Applicants must meet the following to qualify: Law Enforcement Commission (Selective Factor): Must currently hold, previously held within the past three years, or be able to obtain before entering on duty, a National Park Service Level I Law Enforcement Commission. The commission number and expiration, or date obtained, or expected graduation date must be documented in your resume. - AND - Specialized Experience: One year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-12 level in the federal service (obtained in either the public or private sectors) that is directly related to the position to be filled. Examples of specialized experience include managing resource and visitor protection programs including law enforcement, search and rescue, emergency medical services, and structural and wildland firefighting; evaluating law enforcement program activities based on funding to determine objectives, amount and location of work, as well as type of resources needed for the program; interpreting regulations and policy directives related to law enforcement and natural resource protection; reviewing law enforcement case reports to ensure compliance with policy, mutual aid agreements, cooperative agreements and memoranda of understanding; investigating criminal activity; supervising a workforce engaged in resource and visitor protection; and serving as a senior advisor to management. You must include the number of hours worked per week in your resume. Volunteer experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religious; spiritual; community, student, social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience. ADDITIONAL "REQUIREMENTS" CONTINUED: Applicants must be at least 21 years old. Any individual who is currently holding, or has held within the previous 52 weeks, a General Schedule position under non-temporary appointment in the competitive or excepted service, must meet time-in-grade requirements (must have served 52 weeks at the next lower grade or equivalent in the Federal service). Time-in-grade requirements must be met by the closing date of this announcement.

You will also be required to undergo periodic medical examinations throughout employment. Prior to appointment, the people selected for these positions must be determined physically fit by an authorized physician to perform strenuous and physically demanding duties, pass a medical examination, and pass the Physical Efficiency Battery (PEB).
