PREP Testing - Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police

Police Fit Canada is pleased to be a recognized PREP assessment agency for the Ottawa Police Service.  Upon completion of your PREP Test you will receive a "Certificate of Results" indicating your results for your PREP administered by Police Fit Canada. 

You will be able to provide your OPS recruiter with a copy of your results to satisfy the PREP component of your application process.

Note: Your results are an indicator of your physical abilities at the time of testing.  Although you may not have achieved what is
considered a “Pass” (under 2:37 for emergency response circuit, and level 7 on the Léger Shuttle Run) the Ottawa Police Service uses the PREP to evaluate the present physical standing of the applicant. The PREP is not being used to exclude a candidate in the hiring process with the Ottawa Police Service.

The PREP is a measure to assist recruiters in better supporting candidates throughout the hiring process with OPS.  

Recruits will need to achieve the PREP level “Pass” at the Ontario Police College to graduate the academy.
