Is anyone familiar with their process? Couple buddies of mine put in for it and asked if I knew and i have 0 clue. I don’t understand how they plan to go through 1,000 apps and narrow it down to less then half let alone the rest of the process haha

PT and then written. From there it's a random selection to move on like the State Police.

Glad they do PT first. I never understood allowing anyone to take a written test who was physically a disaster

Do PTC certified applicants have to do the PT test?

To be honest, if you cant pass one or the other, then the order of how it goes shouldn't really matter. If someone that isnt physically fit take the written exam first and gets to the PT and fails, then the end result is the same as if someone who is physically fit and passes the pt first and ends up failing the written exam.

Either or the most qualified candidates will make it further than those who arent. But good luck to you all.

The PT exam will weed out those from taking the written. Therefore, the PD will save money because they won’t have to order as many tests.

Everyone takes the test. I’m close to positive they don’t do waivers either, everyone goes to the academy unless you have a class A cert.

They do not waive. Guy I graduated SLEO II academy with is in for NJ transit now and they wouldn’t waive him even tho he had a year left to be waived

That’s why SLEO II route is a risky route. All that work, time and not even for a full cert. but if it pays off why not?

My question is more for an experienced officer, i get you should be in shape, but we all know officers who are not. Its not like NJ Transit are doing yearly PT tests to keep their jobs. Having a PTC as a Special 2 is different then having years of experience as FT certified officer.
