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.

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.”

End of Watch

"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

A relieved client just getting going and loving the teaching methods in the Gold Video Course ...

"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

This client is getting close ... just passed his LFI and ECI with flying colours today with the prep on this website ...

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

And another go-getter ... getting a head start on the fall intake ...

"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

Who says Summer is a time to relax? Not if you really want to be a cop! ...

"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 kind enough to let me know her first impressions of using the Video Course ...

"Hi Gillian - I would like to say thank you again for your very quick response by phone to help with my computer issue. You were extremely helpful and I would never have expected your response on Sat night at 9:00 p.m.

This program is fantastic. I have been out of school for 20 years so I was looking for a detailed program to help me learn Algebra all over again. I had been struggling for about 3 weeks but then by purchasing your program and watching your step by step videos I was amazed that it finally clicked. I am moving onto the next segment tomorrow which is math word problems and I am confident that I will soon master this as well with your help." T.F., May 31, 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." I.C., May 14, 2015

"Just wanted to let you know, I got my ATS test results today for the PATI/WCT and PREP, and I passed on my first try thanks to your program! Thanks!" I.C., May 14, 2015

My latest OPC candidate has let me know that using the Gold program helped her prepare well for OPC as well. She "learned how to learn" and how to structure her studying. See my blog post on this: PATI Police Test and OPC Preparation

The latest pass from a client working full-time in the Canadian Forces in a remote area. The material was great for him to access as he had the time between assignments ...

"Thanks Gillian. The PATI was a struggle for me but your teaching methods were the best I've seen. You made learning so easy and I was going at my own pace. I couldn't believe when my paper said meets standard. If you want to pass any of the police selection process Gillian is the best there is." R.R, Canadian Forces, ON, April 25, 2015

Kind words from someone who has tried other online programs ...

"At first I was very skeptical on trying out any online program. I then found Cognitive Results and was debating on signing up. Fearing it won't offer me the best knowledge that I need to pass the PATI test. I truly made the right decision on becoming a member! As I am SO PLEASED with Gillian's program! She goes way beyond what I expected on being a member! I am now more confident and eager on passing the PATI test this summer! I'll keep you guys posted!" H.D.L., April 9, 2015

"I just got my certificate of results and I met all the requirements. Thank you again for helping me get this far. I'm working on my résumé and cover letter now and should be ready to apply in a weeks time! [He will be using the included preparation material for the Interviews.]" A., March 30, 2015

"Just got my certification in the mail and wanted to say thank you again for all the help 😀 Now the interview preparation begins!" B., March 24, 2015

"Thanks to your program Gillian it really helped me get through the testing and pass the PATI. The videos are really helpful and easy to understand.. I would recommend this program to anyone willing to become a police officer." D., March 19, 2015

(Sent from mobile phone) "Hi Gillian, I took the PATI on this past Saturday. I got my results and I passed.. thank you for your help your questions and (video) tutoring really helped me.." D., March 18, 2015

"Hi Gillian, I just wanted to inform you that after years of failing and retrying my ATS, I passed it. The results just came in. I just wanted to take this time to send out a special thank you. I tried many sites and they did not work. I have to say that all your material in your teaching course and your practice is extremely relevant to the test and I have learned so many things that I did not know before and I couldn't have done it without your teaching material. Thank you so much, this has really been a weight lifted off my shoulders and means so much to me. Please keep doing what you are doing because it's worth it to so many candidates. I really want to thank you and I am really glad that I took the time to invest in your program. Great Job and thank you again! I will refer every candidate that I know to make the same investment." J., March 11, 2015

"Thank you Gillian for creating a program that works! I received my OACP certificate today and it's such a great feeling to be over this stage and moving on to police applications. What I want to tell others who are not sure about becoming a member with you, is that if you want to be a police officer, Cognitive Results is the best way to go in the shortest amount of time. I WASTED my time with other sites. Now I know that Gillian has my back for the Interview part too. Wake up guys! She has 10 years in this biz." L., March 7, 2015

"I just wanted to let you know that I got my PATI results today and I PASSED!!! Thank-You for such a great program- I have already recommended you to others :)" K., March 5, 2015

"I just completed stage 1 of the ATS and was successful on both the PATI and WCT. Before Gillian’s amazing program I had no knowledge of WCT or of any components of the PATI. I was nervous to apply for my ATS as I knew I wouldn't stand a chance meeting the standards for the test. I worked with Cognitive Results for four months following the program to a tee and after talking to Gillian I was confident to book my test. Thanks to Gillian’s amazing teaching technique, video material, feedback and guidance throughout the four months I was successful in my first attempt on the PATI and WCT. After working with Cognitive Results I found the PATI and WCT to be a lot easier than I had anticipated. I am now on to stage 2!! Thanks again Gillian, couldn't have done it without your help." A., March 5, 2015.

Just heard from a client in the Barrie area - he's so relieved to receive his MEETS STANDARD for the PATI! One more step is complete for him! March 4, 2015

"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.
