The examinations for Firefighter, Police Officer, and Fire and Police Communications Officer (Legislative Session 2006) are the only examinations which can be taken in one jurisdiction for the purpose of having a score reported to another jurisdiction. The qualification requirements may differ among some jurisdictions, so you may wish to contact the jurisdiction where you want to have your score reported in addition to the jurisdiction where you plan to take the test, in order to make sure you can meet the requirements for the application process in both jurisdictions.
Examination dates will be added to this site as jurisdictions request them. The contact person for a jurisdiction will have information concerning the application process.
