Success on law enforcement civil service entrance and promotional examinations is not defined by a passing grade. As we like to say at P.T.S., "almost anyone can pass a law enforcement civil service examination." We at P.T.S. know, and you know, that success on your examination only comes when you score high enough to be ranked at the top of the list!
P.T.S. students succeed by obtaining scores that place them high on the list for their appointment to the desired position. P.T.S. designs each of its courses to best prepare our students for their upcoming examination. P.T.S. continuously updates its courses to ensure that students are provided with the most recent information and materials they need to prepare for their upcoming law enforcement civil service examination.
