The Abington Township Civil Service Commission contracted a private vendor (I/O Solution – IOS) to administer the NCJOSI v2 which has proven to be the single most difficult law enforcement entry-level examination being used today. It is known that 40% to 60% of candidates who actually sit for the exam “fail” the exam. Of those who are fortunate enough to pass, the vast majority achieve very low scores that just make the cut line.
The exam was open to non-residents (U.S. citizens) who will be at least 21 years of age on or before February 23, 2018.

CCS Test Prep®utilizes the most contemporary and sophisticated technology to enhance the learning experience of each student. In-class exams are formally scored utilizing sophisticated Scantron scoring equipment and a proprietary software-based scoring system developed by Dr. Paprota. This allows for the production of an individualized scoring report for each student. CCS Test Prep® students receive an individualized scoring report for both a Preliminary Diagnostic Examination administered at the beginning of the program as well as for the formal, Final Examination administered at the conclusion of the program. As a result, each student is keenly aware of his or her strengths and weaknesses to better guide the student’s studies as he or she prepares for the actual examination. This important aspect of the course further enhances the learning experience provided through the well-developed in-class instruction, PowerPoint presentations, very focused course materials, and take-home practice examinations.
