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 Practice (Push/Pull/Restraint Simulator only)
At this time, sessions are reserved for applicants who have submitted an active online application and have written/passed the APCAT exam.
These practice sessions are facilitated by 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 the opportunity to ask questions. Sessions are currently limited, please connect with our office to register for an upcoming practice session.
Alternatively we recommend attending a free Run with Recruiters session. We offer multiple session types including the shuttle run which is a key component of the A-PREP. View and register for upcoming sessions here.
