TNT Certificate for RCMP Applicants in Ontario
TNT Justice Consulting is administering a certificate program on behalf of the RCMP and Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP). It's an applicant pre-screening tool that will assess your suitability for police work by evaluating your:
- cognitive ability
We're piloting this certificate program in Ontario. To help differentiate this pilot for RCMP applicants in Ontario and the OACP Certificate program, we're calling the certificate the "TNT Certificate".
If you've already completed your vision and hearing assessments using the RCMP forms (form 2180 and form 6509), you may submit them as part of your certification process. If you haven't yet completed your vision and hearing assessments, please use the vision and hearing documents that are used for the OACP Certificate process. For the pilot, either the OACP or RCMP vision and hearing forms will be accepted.
For the pilot, you'll need to obtain a TNT Certificate for RCMP Applicants if:
- You're a resident of Ontario
- You applied or are planning on applying to become an RCMP police officer on May 15, 2020 or later
The TNT Certificate for RCMP Applicants costs $250. This cost doesn't include the fees for your vision and hearing assessments.
This pilot program is open to Ontario residents only.
