2024 CPD Sergeant Promotional Exam Review Course

Most of you know by now that the City of Chicago is currently planning to give the sergeants exam in 2024, and a lieutenants exam in 2025. In order to prepare police officers for the new promotional exam, Bernstein Test Prep will be offering a comprehensive review course.

The feedback from our students on our promotional review has been extremely positive. Bernstein students have consistently had the highest scores! Picking the right course for the new test is an important decision. You want to go with a proven winner!

The course will cover “How to best prepare for the upcoming CPD sergeants promotional exam.” All candidates who are interested in getting a promotion should attend!

Lieutenant candidates who register for the sergeants course, can also attend the lieutenants course for no additional fee!
