There are two Public Safety Tests – a written test and a physical ability test. The written test must be completed within 3.5 hours. The test has several sections which are designed to test deductive reasoning, pattern detection, inductive reasoning, information ordering, spatial orientation, written comprehension, written expression, and non-cognitive traits such as work style and personality. Public Safety Testing offers a study guide to help you prepare for this test.

The physical ability test (PAT) consists of push-ups, sit-ups, and squat thrusts. To pass the test, you must do 20 push-ups within 90 seconds, 25 sit-ups within 90 seconds, and 35 squat thrusts within 3 minutes.

Both tests can be completed at a PST testing site, or virtually. See the links below for more information on both tests.
