There are three levels in the process to be invited to be a part of the 2022 FBI Citizens Academy Class:

3. If you are accepted through the application phase, you will be asked to complete fingerprinting

At the conclusion of the program, graduates are encouraged to join the FBI Phoenix Citizens Academy Alumni Chapter (FBIPCAAA) for the purpose of strengthening relationships and improving understanding between the FBI and the community.  Graduates, while not official spokespersons for the FBI, may be called upon to share their understanding of the role of federal law enforcement, specifically the FBI.
