Topic: The Club House / Contemplating becoming a co

Thanks for the info and advice. Just seems like so much to learn. I think I may try to apply but how long does the whole process take? And is it hard or a long wait to actually get a position? I also read there are oral boards, I am a very shy public speaker when the focus is all on myself.

Topic: The Club House / Contemplating becoming a co

I am 35 years old, single mother of 2. Not in the worst shape but do not work out regularly, yet. I have a friend who was talking about an acquaintance who works as a Corrections Officer. The more I heard the more I was intrigued. I was a SAHM for many years and did not even finish my AA, I found myself without a career or education and with children to support. This job interests me because of job security, but also I like that it is not boring. I want to be part of a team, have an exciting job that is not so redundant. Since I have none to discuss this with I would like some info. Am I too old? How in shape do I have to be? I saw there was a physical test with running, sit-ups and push-ups but does everyone have to go through an academy before the can become a co? I can have a cold calm exterior but I am actually a bit shy and self conscious. I am also worried about being tough enough, physically. I have never been in a fight and do not consider myself very strong. Should I rule this job choice out? Or are there tips to help me succeed in this field? Thank you
