If you want to become a probation officer you should find out the requirements first. Take all your general education and take some criminal justice classes. Find out what the required skills are before you just take classes though. Ask someone who works in probation. General requirements for becoming a probation or parole officer are a four-year undergraduate degree (B.A. or B.S.) almost any major is acceptable, but criminal justice, social science or political science major/credits are preferable. The minimum age for the position is 21, the person must be a U.S. citizen and have no felony convictions. Other general requirements are, passing the criminal justice exam which is a three-hour(timed) multiple choice examination, similar to a CCE. Four to five of Basic Probation Officer Training (BPOT); some states require the applicant to also take the Peace Officer Standard Training course (POST). These are also the basic requirements for becoming a federal probation officer, however, training, examinations and other requirements will vary somewhat depending upon the state and/or agency.

Actually you join the air force as an officer, so you need a bachelors degree which takes four years, so if u wanted to be an officer then you would need to go to college and get a bachelors degree, idk exactly what courses but that's what you need to be a pilot.

No. This is not true. You can become a probation officer with a felony. You just have to work alot harder and find someone that will hire you. A felon is probation officer in St. Louis and he did 15 years in prison. He went against the odds and turned his life around, He can do so can anyone else. People need to get felons hope.

You will have to get a degree from a four year college, so four years at minimum. If you are working when you are going to school it will probably take you longer than that.
