Check frequently in the Success Stories section for updates on my clients progress!

This is a site that is very much alive!

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.

Is Cognitive Results Legit?

PATI Police Test and OPC Preparation

The PATI pass rate has been 100% for Gold Level Membership clients who follow the video course program and do Complete Tests #4, 5, and 6 with 15 mins to spare, and no more than two errors per section.

The Sigma Test or SSPO (Sigma Survey for Police Officers) is used with police services in Saskatchewan and Ontario, Canada, and in various locations in the United States. This is a standardized test - the Sigma is the Sigma - no matter where or when you write it. The preparation here on the site is comprehensive and 100% of clients using Cognitive Results preparation have passed to date as long as they follow the complete program and 'meet standards'.

The RCMP testing practice offered on Cognitive Results has passed 100% of the clients to date who have followed the complete program. Our preparation covers both the new format RCMP e-RPAT test, and the original paper-and-pencil RCMP testing.

We pride ourselves on creating fantastic preparation materials that work! We put the time in to make your life easier and more successful.

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.”

Another happy client on her way ...

"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

It's been an amazing month - still more information shared in the ECI and PSYCH sections - it doesn't have to be hard - read what this client says!

"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

ECI passed, on to the PSYCH for my client - my material taught him what to do and say, every step of the way. Now he's studying using the PSYCH material! Everything he needed from THIS WEBSITE! August 11, 2015

Time for getting fitted for his uniform! Got the news that my client is HIRED! August 10, 2015

My client just informed me that he's passed the psych, the background check, and the home visit ... home stretch now ... September intake at OPC - here he comes!! Glad to have helped with the entire process from PATI to Interview personal coaching. August 5, 2015

"Currently I am in the middle of my 4 weeks of at home on-line OITP with the CBSA! I report for training in Rigaud Quebec on Aug 3rd!. So life is excellent! I can’t say enough about how much your training helped me even with the CBSA testing last December. I’m really excited to be able to be a part of the CBSA." C., July 22, 2015

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

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

Heard from three clients who all passed the PATI ...

"Omg Gillan.... I passed the PATI, after failing twice [prior to using my site]. There's hope because of you! I want to thank you so much" N., July 20, 2015

“Your website was exactly what I needed to complete the PATI! I liked how your program was laid out step-by-step, covering each aspect of the PATI. Your program teaches you subject matter as if you had a private tutor beside you – Once you complete all of the modules you will be confident and ready to write the exam” R.C., July 20, 2015

"Thanks for the email! I actually wrote the PATI in June and passed it! Your course was everything that I needed to pass it … " R., July 16, 2015

"It has been a couple of weeks since I have started the program and I must ask why weren't you my teacher all through high school? It is unbelievable how much I have learned from doing the video units. A lot of this stuff I never understood all through high school and now it makes so much sense." A., July 15, 2015

"Hello Gillian, I passed my local focus and ECI interview. Thank you so much for your help." R., July 15, 2015

"Long story short I passed the PATI that I took on June 7th and also the BPAD that I took on June 24th. I received my certificate from O.A.C.P in the mail yesterday. I know I'm far from being done but I just want to say thank you for everything. Without Cognitive Results I know for a fact I would be still struggling with all the testing." T.K., July 8, 2015

"I just PASSED stage 1 of the police pre-selection process, and I couldn't have done it without Gillian and Cognitive Results! I joined *another* website, which helped somewhat, but I just didn't feel very confident about my chances after having done a little bit more online research. I know for certain that had I written the PATI and the WCT going solely off the *other* website, I wouldn't have met standard. Gillian's teaching videos and practice exams were pretty much spot on, as well as being so well organized, well thought-out, and extremely well taught. The benchmarks that Gillian lays out were incredibly helpful when trying to get up to speed. Gillian was also so supportive, and returned my emails in a really friendly and timely manner, which means everything when you're already anxious and stressed from studying. Writing the PATI and WCT seemed like a breeze. I felt totally comfortable writing them, once I sat down and started. And when I finished, I was totally confident that I passed! I bought the Gold Membership, and it's worth every penny. If you're serious about writing the PATI and WCT, and you want to do it on the first pass like me (or do it right the second/third/fourth time), this is the website for you. Thank you, Gillian!! I'm one more step closer to my dream." J.Y., July 3, 2015

Another happy client on their way to a achieving their career change ...

"I MEET STANDARDS!! Thank you for all your help. I couldn't of completed it without your program and knowledge. I'm one step closer to completing this process, in which I've wanted to do for 20 years.

I highly recommend the Gold program. It thoroughly teaches you step by step. Don't be like me and waste your money and time on other sites. I wish someone had informed me about this site first. This is the only site you will need!" M., June 23, 2015

Just heard from two clients today who were successful with Stage 1 and onto Stage 2 for their OACP win ...

" PASSED!!!! my PATI. Thank You for all your help. I couldn't of done it without your program and knowledge." M., June 18, 2015

"I have now completed Stage 1 ... Stage 2 is in a few weeks , so I will begin preparation for that thanks so much for your help up to this point you have gone above and beyond and I am truly grateful." S., June 18, 2015

Thanks for these kind words about my syllogisms system I created ...

"Thank you Gillian for developing an amazing system to tackle syllogisms. After much research online, I have to say your method is definitely the best, easy and most accurate way to understanding and solving syllogisms." A.B., June 1, 2015

This client was lucky enough to run into a police officer who recommended me to him before he started the process ...

"Cognitive Results (CR) was the #1 factor for me passing the ATS PATI/WCT on my first try!! Gillian was a great help in responding to my emails, and answering any questions I had really quickly! Originally I thought I could just study on my own to pass the PATI, but luckily I ran into an officer while shopping at Fairview Mall who recommended CR to me. She told me that the price is worth it, and that I'd make it all back when I'm a recruit in the Toronto Police Force anyway. I'm glad I took her advice! CR's video tutorials (gold package) not only helped me understand the sections and questioning format of the PATI better, but the tips and tricks also helped me complete it faster too! During my actual PATI exam, I completed the it with a little over 30 minutes to spare, which gave me plenty of time to go over it again and catch little mistakes I made. I'm certain that without Cognitive Results, I wouldn't have been prepared enough to pass the PATI/WCT on my first attempt."

"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.
