Cognitive Results is a teaching and coaching resource for clients pursuing career changes in government and law enforcement.

Our Mission: to inspire, encourage, and support career change in government and law enforcement by providing the highest quality and most accurate training materials for testing and interviewing.

Are you fed up with other police test preparation sites that don't get the job done?

My Gold program takes you through the OACP or your province's equivalent - the Gold program helps you learn how to learn so that you will succeed at OPC as well (or your province's equivalent).

My Guided Interview Prep program helps you succeed at your police service's interview process. I have an extraordinary pass rate for clients.

My typical client has used 3 or more other police test sites and tutors and failed. Doesn't matter. I get them through.

It's not about whether you can do this. You totally can. But you've been using the wrong sites. MY MATERIAL WORKS. PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

You get all the tools and personal support you need to pass your police test. Including me.

From your police test through to the competency interviews and beyond to the psych testing.


The GOLD program IS different because it's personal and it works.

Stop researching and take action - sign up today and get going on your goals. Invest in your future and put yourself first.

Hi Gillian,

I meant to tell you I was sworn in so I am officially a constable!

It's only right that I share this with you since you and your material were so integral to this accomplishment.

I truly wanted this and it wasn't anywhere close to easy but I was willing to work for it and, equally, I wasn't willing to take any chances so I called on you and your materials. Not only did I get hired, but I got hired my first time applying.

Thank you for everything and I know we'll continue to stay in touch. I continue to refer people to you. Whether or not they listen depends on whether or not they want the job.

Get going on your dream job!

“I am the Police, and I am here to arrest you. You have broken the law. I did not write the law, I may even disagree with the law, but I will enforce it. Nothing will stop me from placing you in a steel cage with bars. Behind my badge is a heart like yours. I bleed, I think, I love, and yes, I can be killed. And although I am but one man, I have thousands of brothers and sisters who would die for me and I for them. We stand watch together. I am fate with a badge and a gun. The thin-blue-line, protecting the prey from the predators, the good from the bad. We are the police.”

Recent Success Stories:

"Got my results today and it says 'Meets Standard'. I wrote [the PATI] test on November 21st, 2015. I want to say that this is the best website for the practice and anyone who wants to clear it in the first attempt. All the material is very useful and if you practice everything you will succeed. Gillian is very helpful and replies to the emails quickly. I want to thank you again for your support. :)" P., November 25, 2015

"I just wanted to let you know I was successful with my RCMP testing. I know you have lots of PATI clients, but maybe this will help another person out there wanting to pass their RCMP testing too. I'm looking forward to the RCMP interview material in the Guided Interview program. Sure beats wondering if I've got it right or not - I know I will using your teaching. Thanks again, words cannot express what a difference you've made in my life." N., November 24, 2015

"I wanted to thank you for such a fantastic course! I wrote my PATI and passed! Next step is the WCT." S., November 23, 2015

"Thanks Gillian for all your help. I got a job offer from ***** police service - I am at the OPC in January. I could not not have done it without you. I tried police prep, test ready pro and other tutors and nothing worked until I found the best product out there {Cognitive Results}. Your material is 100 percent effective. I was so shocked at how much I learned from you. I recommend Cognitive Results for 100 percent success. Thanks Gillian" R., November 22, 2015

"I wouldn't have passed the PATI without the help of your Cognitive Results so thanks again." M., November 11, 2015

Two more clients passed this past week ... on their way to the interviews using the Guided Interview product ... week ending Oct 31st

Hi Gillian

I am 49 and have been out of school for years. Knowing I had to "brush up" on some skills I was first directed to another prep site that a friend of mine had taken. Not impressed with the information offered, I found your website through Google.

I signed up and started through the course. Questions came up along the way and I was surprised how fast you responded to my emails. After the course, I followed (for the most part) the study schedule laid out.

On October 24 2015, I sat down to write the PATI and WCT. The WCT teachings were invaluable and while I saw others constantly erasing (especially near the 50 minute mark), I was completed. For the PATI, I tackled the arithmetic first, word problems second, and using the syllogism teaching, finished those in about 4 minutes giving me a break before hitting the mapping. All in all, was done the PATI with just over 15 minutes left. There is zero question that what you offer with your website is extremely valuable. I felt literally no stress in taking these tests. Those that were frantically trying to complete would have been well served to step inside your course. Results were emailed to me today and "Meets Standard" was the outcome.

Many thanks, S., October 28, 2015

"Just wanted to say thank you for your help with the PATI and WCT. I was successful in both :)" O., October 8, 2015

"I had my ECI interview Friday used your advice - felt a lot more prepared, a lot better [than when he had it 6 months ago prior to finding me]. I haven't heard yet if I'm successful or not, was just trying to stay ahead of the game in case they set it up quick." TODAY'S NEWS: "Just got the call, I passed, next step is an inspector interview" J., October 6, 2015

"Well Ms. Gillian...we did it!!!

I passed the PATI using your course!!!! I am upset at myself that I did not buy your course on my first try, but I passed now and that's all that matters.

I want to thank you so so so so so so so much for teaching me math all over again. I wouldn't have been able to do it without your video course and practice tests.

Again from the bottom of my heart..THANK YOU...you helped me overcome my fear of the notorious PATI!" A., September 30, 2015

"Thank you. You are an amazing teacher. I loved your PATI teaching and of course the ECI now. [Written in reference to working through the ECI Video Course in preparation for the booked interview.]" R., September 16, 2015

"Awesome, I looked it over quite a bit, I can't believe how much I was missing. [Written in reference to the RCMP Interview teaching - this client had failed the interview last year prior to finding me and is now preparing for his re-test this year.]" C., September 12, 2015

"It's been awhile since I touched base with you - I passed the RCMP testing with no problem and went on to the interview. Thank you for all of the great teaching material you have on your site. I couldn't have done it without you! Just waiting now for the backgrounds." B., August 24, 2015

"I just wanted to thank you for all of your help. I can't believe how easy every step was with your teaching material. It really taught me how to think like a cop so that by the time I hit the interview and the psych testing, I already knew how to respond. Honestly, I can't recommend you enough - after struggling before coming to you to easily passing every stage. I'm in the background check now but they just phoned and told me everything looks good and scheduled the home visit. Time to clean up lol. Thanks again. You're the best!" R.W., August 13, 2015

Latest comment from recruiters testing my client during the ECI Interview ...

"Who prepared you? You hit it out of the park."

"Hey Gillian - I forgot to tell you that I wrote the RCMP e-RPAT and I met the criteria to proceed further. Just waiting for the package next. I found the practice tests super useful and they really did the trick. Thanks again for your help!"

"Hi Gillian, Thank you seems so inadequate right now. Thanks to your amazing materials and advice I passed my ECI with Hamilton (85% failure rate per my interviewers) today and I'm still in the thick of things with two other services as well! For anyone reading this, you will not find better material than Gillian's to prepare you for this process from start to finish. As the saying goes, if you fail to prepare...prepare to fail. I can attest to this being a HIGHLY competitive and stressful process. Do not make it harder than it has to be, do not leave anything to chance, and do not think for a second that you'll find another site to better prepare you for this journey. If you are serious about becoming a police officer and serious about not having to redo any steps in this journey, park your ego and let Gillian guide you."

"Cognitive Results is the most comprehensive site for those interested in pursuing a career in policing.  I would strongly urge members to take advantage of the on-line video teaching sessions for optimum results.  If you are serious about passing your P.A.T.I. exam, look no further.  Quite simply, the other sites do not compare."

Note: This client purchased three other sites before coming to me.
