This test is for the Intensive Police Academy scheduled to begin in Fall of 2017.
On the day of the test, please arrive at least 20 minutes early. You must present your valid driver's license or other photographic identification to be admitted to the testing room. You will need two #2 pencils. You will not need to bring any other equipment. In fact, cell phones and any other type of electronic instruments are strictly prohibited in the testing room.
The entrance examination was designed by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST). It is 2.5 hours in length. Please plan for up to 4 hours for the testing process.
Those who pass the test will be invited to a Physical Agility test scheduled for Saturday, May 20, 2017, at 8:00 AM.
COS requires a T-score of 42 or higher in order to gain entry into its Basic Police Academy. Test results usually return from POST in 15 days from the test date and are then emailed the same day we receive them.
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.
No walk-ins allowed on test day. Pre-registration required.
