Just register on-line and we will contact you to help you prepare not only for the promotional exams, but more importantly, for the JOB!Image result for Free Decorative Page Break Clip Art Ask yourself this question: How much will the promotion in rank or  increase your “Upward Mobility?” Your “Retirement?”  Options after your “retirement?” 

Is your agency helping you prepare for that next promotion? Identifying the specific KSA’s (Knowledge, Skills or Abilities) you need to demonstrate your “readiness” to promote? Helping you develop the leadership skills to be successful in that next rank or higher? If not, we will! We have a proven track record of helping develop future leaders, since 1990!  

Consider the coaching, class or text as an investment in your future. (Classes are postponed until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted)

 Practice Written Exams are available upon request. There is a minimum of a 30 day lead time for written exams as they are custom made for your organization.Image result for Free Decorative Page Break Clip Art From a training perspective, consider the new challenges in supervision and management that we are facing today. Our scenarios are always based on current “hot buttons” not only in public safety, but in your agency as well. 

We realize the seriousness of this Global Pandemic, the current levels of  civil disobedience, social unrest and anti-police attitudes. We wish all of our colleagues in public safety our heartfelt gratitude for doing the noble work you do everyday, regardless of the risks.Image result for Free Decorative Page Break Clip Art For a free KSA worksheet for the rank you’re going for, send us a copy of the job description for that rank.
