The Bergen County Police Academy in Mahwah (NJ) utilizes the NJ Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP) exam services consisting of the I/O Solutions (IOS) National Criminal Justice Officer Selection Inventory (NCJOSI) written exam series. This is a very critically scored entry-level exam that has been proven to be very challenging as a competitive instrument. Most candidates take the exam over and over without ever achieving a sufficiently adequate score to be considered in any of the selection processes for which the exam series is utilized.

The CCS Test Prep® Program 

Candidates who register for the CCS Test Prep® program for the 2019 Bergen County Alternate Route Exam will begin their training on Monday, February 25, 2019. Candidates will begin by utilizing the CCS Test Prep® Online Learning Platform with 24/7 access through to the time of the actual exam. On Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., students will have the special opportunity to attend an in-class formal testing and review session at the Bergen County Police Academy with Chief David A. Paprota, Ed.D. (Ret.). While attending this session is part of the program, it is not mandatory but is highly recommended.

At the in-class session, students will have the opportunity to sit for a formal exam which will be Scantron™ scored and run through Dr. Paprota’s scoring software to produce a properly weighted score, so each student knows his or her personal strengths and weaknesses going into the remainder of his or her studies. Each student also will receive a detailed scoring report as part of the program.

After the in-class session, the  CCS Test Prep® Online Learning Platform allows students to reinforce their knowledge and understanding all of the way up to the time of the actual test on March 11, 2019.
