ACT and APCAT Testing

Please Note - As we adjust capacity restrictions, please follow instructions provided upon registration. If you are showing any signs or symptoms of illness, please do not attend and select an alternate date to register your exam when you feel healthy.

Applicants are required to successfully complete these tests prior to taking the Alberta Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police Officers (A-PREP). The ACT is designed to assess ability to communicate in writing and the APCAT is a job-related written examination. You no longer need to have submitted an application prior to writing exams. 

The test writes will be moderated by Recruit Selection Unit Constables. 

Written Test Dates:


  • Saturday, August 20, 2022
  • Tuesday, August 23, 2022
  • Tuesday, September 6, 2022

**Although no application is required, please note that your professionalism is being assessed and that writing the exam counts as an official attempt.** 

Applicants must be registered to attend the above test sessions. You can register here.
