The Academy requires a T-score of 48 or higher in order to gain entry into its Basic Police Academy and its Modular Format (BAM) Level I course. This entrance exam is not required, however, for the BAM Level III course (entry level of the Modular format).

POST regulations prohibit examinees from taking this exam more than one time in any 30-day period from any exam site in the State of California. Be advised that if you make multiple attempts to take this exam within a 30-day period, POST will invalidate your exam.
The Academy charges a non-refundable materials fee of $10 per test. Should you need to cancel or reschedule a testing, you will be required to pay the fee again; keep this policy in mind when scheduling your test date.
