The following has been adopted by OPS to satisfy the hiring process regarding candidates during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Step 1- Virtual meeting/consultation with each candidate via Zoom.
Consultation will focus on the Candidates present training and engagement;

Step 2- Candidate to provide a 2 week Training Log after consultation. Discussed at Step 1

Step 3- Candidates will be asked to do a series of timed exercises that help in evaluating the abilities and likelihood of succeeding the PREP physical standard. Discussed at Step 1

Step 4- After evaluating the candidates abilities and Training Log, Police Fit Canada will provide a Virtual PREP "Certificate of Performance" supporting the Candidate continuation in the recruit process with OPS. A candidate not achieving a pass standard on the abilities test will be encouraged to continue their training and be reassessed at a later time.

Step 5- Candidates who are hired by OPS are required to pass a PREP fitness test prior to attending OPC. The offer of employment with OPS remains conditional to the Candidate being successful at the time of testing.
