The CCS Test Prep® Online Program
April 1, 2023 – This prep program begins with formally registered students being shipped (via UPS) a practice binder beginning April 1, 2023, so the student can begin working through pencil-to-paper practice exercises at a moderate pace well in advance of the exam.
May 15, 2023 – The CCS Test Prep® Online Training Platform will be made available 24/7 to registered students beginning on May 15, 2023. On that day, students will receive an email with a special link to access the learning platform.
The program begins with the Part 1 – Written Abilities (Cognitive) Course. This part of the program involves much of the content of the binder, so students will have the ability to reinforce their binder studies and practice through the instructional videos, lessons, and most importantly, the instantly scored online practice quizzes with answer guides.
The Part 2 – Trait Assessment Course will be added to the student’s course list exactly two weeks immediately before the exam with students having 24/7 access. Students will quickly see that this type of material is much more suitable for online study than Part 1. This is a very important course of study, as each student will be able to identify his or her personal strengths and weaknesses. Once opened, each part will be available 24/7 through to the time of the test on June 17, 2023.
The Part 3 – Bio-data Course will be added to the student’s course list exactly one week immediately before the actual test with students having 24/7 access. Like Part 2, this type of assessment is ideal for online study and is a very important course of study as well. Each student will be able to identify his or her personal strengths and weaknesses. Once opened, each part will be available 24/7 through to the time of the test on June 17, 2023.

Refund Policy: As of March 15, 2023, there is a strict NO REFUND policy (NO EXCEPTIONS) as of the time of the course registration, as the course practice binder is shipped via UPS without delay.
In 2019, the CCS Test Prep® Program consisted of a two-day, in-person seminar that focused on each aspect of the competitive exam. Chief David A. Paprota, Ed.D. (Ret.) also provided students with access to the CCS Test Prep® Online Learning Platform during the days leading immediately up to the actual exam on June 15, 2019. Students were able to easily reinforce their knowledge of prior studies by taking instantly scored short practice quizzes (over and over). It was evident that students benefitted tremendously from the online program, as they had the opportunity to work to 100% proficiency in each tested area. As such, the 2023 CCS Test Prep® full course will now be offered as an online program with students having 24/7 access to study at their convenience to work to 100% proficiency before test day!
This program and approach is very effective, as serious students can truly refine their skills and excel on the test. Passing is not good enough; it is critical to score extremely high in this very competitive process.
