We require you to complete the PELLETB and WSTB prior to applying for the position.
The POST Entry-Level Law Enforcement Test Battery (PELLETB) measures skills that are associated with successful performance as a California peace officer. Because the PELLETB is an aptitude test, the skills measured are acquired gradually over a long period of time (usually years). There is no quick or easy way to improve these skills in preparation for the exam. The only way to predictably improve scores on an aptitude test is through extensive learning and practice (e.g., coursework, training).
The POST Work Sample Test Battery (WSTB) measures your fitness level to perform the duties of a peace officer. The examination includes a 99-yard obstacle course, 32-foot body drag, fence climbing, 500-yard spring, and 1.5 mile run.
