What can I expect from the selection process at NSPA?


Our selection process has been designed to test your technical and behavioral competencies and will usually consist of a written and oral part.

  • Technical competencies also known as hard skills, describe the application of knowledge and skills needed to perform specific tasks in a specific job. Those can be taught in a classroom, and can be defined, evaluated, and measured. In other words, this is the "know-how" needed for successful performance. Examples include project planning or knowledge of a specific weapon system or software. 
  • Behavioral competencies, also known as soft skills, describe the combination of abilities, motivations and personality traits required to perform effectively in a role. Examples include interpersonal skills, decision making, communication and leadership abilities.
Different jobs require different competencies. You will find all relevant job-specific skills in the job description, so you know what to expect.
