PARE & COPAT Training for Entry Tests

The Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation (PARE) is an occupational test used to assess a person’s ability to perform the physical demands of police work. The PARE is used by several law enforcement agencies throughout Canada, including the RCMP.

Correctional Officer Physical Abilities Test (COPAT) is an assessment tool used to identify candidates who possess the minimal physical abilities required to meet the demands of the job. The COPAT simulates the physical tasks that must be performed by Correctional Officers (CO).

Success College is the only training centre in the Maritimes that can train you on official PARE and COPAT fitness equipment.

He worked as Liaison with U.S. Customs, FBI, DEA and other federal and state organizations.
