Potential applicants interested in future hiring opportunities as an OSP Recruit Trooper are urged to prepare beforehand for the application process and Entry Level Testing. Historically, half of all applicants fail the physical fitness portion of the entry level testing process. To help prepare for the testing process, applicants can see their age group and gender physical fitness standards as well as watch associated videos demonstrating proper testing performance on the 'Trooper Testing Information' link. Additionally, applicants can review sample questions to help prepare for the written portion of the testing phase.
Written Test tips, strategies and sample questions.
The Oregon State Police has put together a study guide to provide potential applicants with some tips and strategies for taking our written test. The guide also includes several sample test questions to provide applicants with a better idea of the format of the test.
Preparation for Physical Abilities Test.
The Physical Abilities Test is one of the biggest hurdles for our applicants to pass. We lose on average of half of all applicants during the Physical Abilities Tests. Applicants should be working toward being able to comfortably meet the physical fitness standards. Applicants are encouraged to begin training to the highest possible level one can achieve even if that surpasses the recruitment standards.
