Research shows that those who attend an A-PREP session have a better success rate than those who do not. It is highly encouraged that you attend one of these sessions as you will be exposed to the A-PREP protocol, you will learn how to effectively train for it, given technical advice on how to perform each of the tasks, and you will have an opportunity to ask questions and practice the physical tasks in the A-PREP. We have two different A-PREP session types:
A-PREP Practices are currently on hold and will be assessed in March, 2021.
These practice sessions are facilitated by EPS recruiters. Those who attend this session will have the opportunity to try out the A-PREP equipment (Body Control Simulator and Arm Restraint Simulator) and have any questions answered by recruiters. It is suggested that applicants also attend an A-PREP orientation to maximize the effectiveness of this practice opportunity.
