OACP Certificate Process

Navigating the OACP Certificate Process with Cognitive Results

Are you considering a career in law enforcement in Ontario? Obtaining your Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) certificate is a crucial step in the selection process for police services across the province. At Cognitive Results, we guide you through every step of this journey, ensuring you have the knowledge and support you need to succeed.

Understanding the OACP Certificate Process

The OACP certificate ensures that all potential police officers meet the necessary standards before entering the service. It evaluates various competencies and skills essential for a career in law enforcement, including cognitive abilities, behavioural traits, and physical fitness.

The Steps to Obtain Your OACP Certificate

  1. Application and Registration
    • Register on the OACP website. Fill out an application form and pay the associated fees. Ensure you have all the necessary documents ready, such as identification, educational qualifications, and any prior experience details.
  2. Online Testing
    • The OACP process includes two online tests to assess your cognitive abilities and behavioural traits. At Cognitive Results, we provide expert help with both of these tests:
      • SIGMA SSPO (Sigma Survey for Police Officers): This aptitude test evaluates logical reasoning, mathematical skills, and language proficiency.
      • ESQ2 (Employee Screening Questionnaire 2): This personality test assesses behavioural traits and suitability for a career in law enforcement.
    • We offer tailored practice tests and study materials to help you prepare effectively for both these tests.
  3. Fitness Log
    • Demonstrate your physical readiness for the demands of the job by completing and submitting a fitness log.
  4. Vision and Hearing Tests
    • Meet the vision and hearing standards set by the OACP by having these tests conducted by qualified professionals and submitting the results as part of your application.
