Written Exam

How can I prepare for the Written Exam? What can I study?

The best way to prepare for the Written Examination is to view the Sample CO/YCO/YCC Sample Test. The Written Exam includes reading comprehension, basic math, and critical thinking skills. The Sample questions provide candidates a sense of what analytical skills will be expected of them, as well as an idea of certain scenarios Correctional Peace Officers encounter on a daily basis. Various Correctional Officer Examination prep books are available online and at bookstores and may benefit some candidates.
