- When will the next CPD sergeant’s exam be given?
The City is planning to administer the sergeant’s exam during the first half of 2024.
- There were a number of security issues and problems with the last sergeant’s exam. Does the City have a plan to fix the problems that occurred?
Yes, they have hired a testing consultant to address the issues. It looks like they are on track to fix the problems. They are on track in part because FOP President John Catanzara Jr. provided them with input on how to make the process more fair for all members.
- Will there be significant changes made to improve the 2024 sergeant’s exam?
After reviewing a Freedom of Information response, I can say yes. I expect that the changes will be significant! I will review everything that I know at the July 17 and 18 free classes. If you missed the free class, you can request a copy of the handout by sending an email to email@example.com
- Will the City tell the officers who are taking the sergeant’s exam about the proposed changes to the exam?
Yes, the contract with the testing company requires the company to fully explain what the new testing process will be. I expect this to happen later this year.
- When will the Bernstein training for the sergeant’s exam preparation begin?
We will begin on Monday, July 17th, with a free 2-hour overview class at Malcolm X College. It will be offered on Tuesday, July 18th, as well. The times will be 10am – 12pm, or 6pm – 8pm. You only need to attend one class on one day. The AM and PM classes are the same. I will review “How to best prepare for the newly proposed changes to the sergeant’s exam.” I am very familiar with the proposed changes and the new format being proposed. If you missed the free class, you can request a copy of the handout by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
