Proctor Training

California Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) requires formal proctor training for the POST Entry-Level Dispatcher Selection Test Battery, the POST Entry-Level Law Enforcement Test Battery (PELLETB), and basic course tests.  The proctor training is designed to ensure that the individuals administering the examinations are trained in the proper security and administration procedures for the respective examinations.

POST Entry-Level Dispatcher Selection Test Battery Proctor Training

All Dispatcher proctors are required to complete two online proctor training courses: the Jumpstart and the Dispatcher Selection Test Battery. The Jumpstart course covers general test security information pertinent to all of POST's secure tests. The Dispatcher Selection Test Battery course covers procedures specific to the ordering, storage, administration, mailing, and scoring of the test.  Another option is to have Cooperative Personnel Services (CPS) proctor the test for your agency. CPS charges for this service and needs at least one month’s notice to schedule. For more information on proctor services, contact CPS at postdispatcherorder@cpshr.us or (916) 471-3516.

All users of the Dispatcher Selection Test Battery must comply with this requirement. POST will only fill dispatcher test orders and provide scoring services for agencies that are in compliance with POST's online proctor training requirements.

Additional questions about the Online Proctor Training can be directed to proctorrequest@post.ca.gov.

POST Entry-Level Law Enforcement Test Battery (PELLETB) Proctor Training

Individuals who will be proctoring and/or ordering the POST Entry-Level Law Enforcement Test Battery (PELLETB) are required to complete two online proctor training courses: the Jumpstart Course and the PELLETB Course.  The Jumpstart Course covers general test security information pertinent to all of POST’s secure tests.  The PELLETB Course covers procedures specific to ordering, storage, administration, mailing, and scoring of the PELLETB.  POST will only fill test orders and provide scoring services for those agencies that are in compliance with this requirement. Information about the online proctor training courses can be sent via email to proctorrequest@post.ca.gov.
