Communications Operator - The Written Exam

Existing law requires that Communications Operator applicants must be assessed for verbal, reasoning, memory, and perceptual abilities. These abilities must be evaluated prior to hire to assure the presence of ability levels commensurate with the performance of dispatcher duties. This is measured by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Entry-Level Dispatcher Selection Test Battery (written exam).

Details of the written exam along with sample questions are included in the POST Entry-Level Dispatcher Selection Test Battery: Examinee Guide 1996.
