Why the Alternate Route Program?
The CCS Test Prep® Program is a very focused training course during which Chief David A. Paprota, Ed.D. (Ret.) works with students using an online platform for the two weeks leading up to the actual exam. Along with videos and instructional lessons, students have the ability to complete online practice quizzes which are instantly scored and include answer guides to ensure maximum retention and understanding. This focused approach has proven to be far superior to in-class lectures and has produced exceptional results.
The Passaic County Police Academy in Wayne (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.
