New Test Versions and Reading Lists Available (PSUP, PL, PDET, FCO)

Due to recent updates to the published source material for our series of Police Supervisor (PSUP), Police Lieutenant (PL), Fire Company Officer (FCO), and Police Detective (PDET), we have decided to update several of the test questions that appear in those test forms.  In addition, we have updated the reading lists belonging to each test to reflect the most current published source material.

To assist our customers in more easily recognizing which test version they are administering, we have reprinted the new tests under new names. The new tests correspond to the old ones and have undergone changes as follows:

If you’ve already distributed the reading lists for any of the older versions of these tests, then you do not need to take any further action to redistribute a new reading list. When you order your test, just make sure to order the test that matches the reading list you provided to your candidates. We will retain sufficient stock of the existing tests to accommodate those processes that have already begun.

At this point forward, we will be providing the updated reading lists for all new orders. If you’d like to request the new reading list, you may do so here: http://ipma-hr.org/assessment/support/readinglist.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about this update.

Introducing the new FCO 400 Series

We are excited to introduce our new 400 Series Fire Company Officer Tests. These tests were designed to assess whether candidates have the competencies to perform successfully at the rank of fire company officer (i.e., lieutenant, captain) in a fire department. FCO 401-EM and FCO 402-EM were designed for those departments that perform emergency medical (EM) services. The series is comprised of four tests:

These tests are meant to fully replace the two Fire Company Officer A and A with EM tests we’ve been offering for the past year, and more fully reflect the FCO 300 Series that were offered in Spring 2014 and earlier.

Feel free to request the reading list for these 4 tests. The reading list is quite different from the Fire Company Officer A and A with EM tests because two books are now in new editions. Continue reading

First Line Supervisor Tests Updated and New Reading Lists

Due to recent updates to the published source material for our First Line Supervisor tests, ECC-FLS 102 and CF-FLS 102, we have had to make updates to some of the test questions that appear in those tests.

As a result of these updates, we are reprinting the tests under new names. The new tests correspond to the old ones as follows:

If you’ve already distributed the reading lists for either test you do not need to take any further action or redistribute a new reading list. When you order your test, just make sure to order the test that matches the reading list you provided to your candidates. We will retain sufficient stock to fulfill all orders of the older test.

From this point forward, we will be providing the CF-FLS 202 and ECC-FLS 202 reading lists only. If you’d like to request the new reading list, you may do so here.

In addition to the CF and ECC First Line Supervisor reading list update, the PSUP series’ (301/302/303) reading list also experienced an update. Unlike the other two tests, it does not require any items to be replaced.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about this update.

As a result of these updates, we are reprinting the tests under new names. The new tests correspond to the old ones as follows:

When you order your test, just make sure to order the test that matches the reading list you provided to your candidates. We will retain sufficient stock of the existing tests to accommodate those processes that have already begun.

At this point forward, we will be providing the FCO 200 series reading lists. If you’d like to request the new reading list, you may do so here.
