Tyngsborough Police Department
TYNGSBOROUGH PD SWITCHES TO IN-HOME TESTING PROCESS.
ANNOUNCING: “IN-HOME TESTING”
from Police Exam Solutions
Dear Tyngsborough PD Candidate:
You are receiving this notice because you are registered for the upcoming Tyngsborough Police Department’s Entrance Exam on October 17th.
After careful consideration, the Tyngsborough Police Department has opted to participate in the In-Home Testing process, in lieu of an in-person exam.
Police Exam Solutions is pleased to announce the Law-Enforcement Entry Level In-Home Testing series, to replace the in-person testing previously scheduled.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are faced with many challenges to provide in-person exams. Given the state safety guidelines, in-person gathering restrictions, and the ability to utilize schools safely, we are pleased to provide our clients and candidates with a safe alternative to in-person exams, namely In-Home Testing.
PES remains steadfast in our commitment to provide our clients with the most qualified pool of candidates, without sacrificing the safety and well-being of our staff, clients, and candidates.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?
Do not show up for the exam on October 17th. The in-person exam has been replaced by a new In-Home testing procedure. Over the next few weeks, Police Exam Solutions will be in touch with you via email with instructions on how to proceed.
Your exam will be re-scheduled to occur in one of several sessions over a few days during the week of Nov. 16 - Nov. 20, 2020. As soon as the Tyngsborough PD session dates are available, you will receive instructions and an invitation to book your exam.
In the upcoming weeks, you will receive detailed instructions on the process, requirements, and procedures necessary to participate. For your informational purposes, we have provided a few important at-a-glance highlights below.
There will be no additional cost to candidates.
You MUST meet minimum requirements for accepted hardware. On the date of your test, you will be required to have 2 devices:
A mobile smartphone or table, and
A desktop or laptop PC running Windows 7 or later.
Currently, the in-home testing is only available for Windows PC’s. The Testing Application is not compatible with Apple Macintosh’s or Google Chromebook’s. If you do not have access to a Windows PC, we suggest you borrow or rent one for the day of your exam.
The at home testing sessions are 2 hours and 30 minutes long. The entire exam must be completed in one session. We will be hosting a number of sessions across a few weekdays during November 16-20, 2020. Typically, we will be offering two sessions per day: one in the morning and another in the afternoon. You will receive an invitation to reserve the test date and time that best suits your schedule from the choices available. We do not offer additional make-up dates/times, nor are weekend sessions available.
At this time, we are not accepting score transfers from previous exam(s). If you want to be considered eligible for the Tyngsborough PD recruitment process, you must participate in the on-line exam. Should this policy change, all updates will be posted to our website.
You must complete your PPI essay component 5 days before your scheduled exam. If you do not fulfill this requirement, you will be disqualified and NOT permitted to participate in the exam. We advise you complete this as soon as possible to avoid this situation. You can access your portal by visiting http://tyngsborough.ppi-portal.com, and logging in with your email and password.
Police Exam Solution’s firmly believes this will become the new norm in the testing world. PES’s commitment to offering the finest police exam(s) to candidates while furnishing the department with the largest eligible candidate pool, remains our number one priority.
While we will continue to offer our clients a choice in in-person or in-home testing, the Tyngsborough Police Department recognizes the need to provide the utmost safety and security to candidates, PD and PES staff, as well as the school personnel, and as such will be moving to the In-Home Testing option.
In closing, let us reiterate: Do not show up for the exam on October 17th. PES will be providing you with the instructions and detailed information necessary for your upcoming exam. You should expect to receive these emails by approximately the first week in November. We will also post the information to the homepage of our website. Since some ISP’s reject our email campaigns, it is your responsibility to stay in the know and checking our website frequently.
