The NDHP is an equal employment opportunity employer. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, genetics, color, sex, religion, national origin, age or disability in employment or the provision of services and comply with the provisions of the North Dakota Human Rights Act.


Applicants are now allowed to take the Wonderlic and National Police Officer Selection Test outside of the normal selection process.  We have facilities available for testing in Bismarck, Grand Forks, Minot, Williston, Fargo, and Bloomington, MN.  

By successfully passing these written tests, you would move directly to the oral interview phase during our next selection process.  You would be required to wait 2 months to be eligible to retake the test(s) should it require more than one attempt. 

For more information on taking the tests outside of the normal selection process or to set up a date and location to pre-test, please contact Chelsey Dietz at: cdietz@nd.gov or 701-328-2579.  Some of the testing sites charge a fee to administer the tests.  Any fees for taking the exams will be the responsibility of the applicant.
