I’ve completed testing in a province other than Alberta – is it recognized?

Each province has their own testing measures, and you will be required to meet the Alberta standards if you are applying to the Calgary Police Service. Our written testing consists of the Alberta Communications Test (ACT) and the Alberta Police Cognitive Ability Test (APCAT), and our physical testing is the Alberta Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police (A-PREP).


How can I prepare for the written testing?

You may wish to consult an external study guide, web resources or a tutor. You also may want to attend an English as a Second Language course before registering for testing, if you are concerned about your level of proficiency in spoken and written English.
