Entrance Requirements

Peace Officer Entrance Examination

In January 1997, the POST Council directed the POST staff to develop a process that would assure individuals entering Law Enforcement have adequate reading, writing, and mathematical skills. Therefore, at the direction of the POST Council, and effective January 1997, anyone applying for peace officer training must pass an entrance exam.

The entrance exam is administered by the agencies listed below. Scoring is provided through Stanard & Associates, Inc., in order to maintain the integrity of the exam and allow POST a means to verify the completion of the testing requirement.

The exam may be taken at any of the following testing sites. A fee may be assessed and government or state picture identification is necessary. The results are mailed to you approximately two (2) weeks from the test date. Below are the approved testing sites:
