Criminal Justice Basic Abilities Testing Services (CJBAT)
The Public Safety Institute at Eastern Florida State College partners with the Brevard Police Testing & Selection Center (BPTC) to select students for law enforcement and corrections academy students. The BPTC performs all screening and testing verification. Academy applicants must first take the Criminal Justice Basic Abilities Test (CJBAT), a requirement of the State of Florida to enter any law enforcement academy.
Pearson Vue testing centers administer the CJBAT in accordance with Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) requirements. The New Horizons Computer Learning Center, located at 4450 W Eau Gallie Blvd, Suite 130 in Melbourne, is the Brevard County location that offers the CJBAT. To register to take the CJBAT, visit the Florida Department of Law Enforcement website. Once there you will find additional details about the test and should click the "Create Account" button and complete the required information. After creating your account you will be directed to "Schedule this Exam" and will have the opportunity to choose the Melbourne New Horizons location. A calendar will provide available test dates and after choosing one, you will follow the check out and payment steps and receive confirmation emails with the steps to take the test.
The CJBAT, developed by Industrial/Organizational Solutions (IOS), Inc., measures the defined minimum competencies in three separately-timed sections as follows: Section I - behavioral attributes; Section II - memorization; and Section III – written comprehension, written expression, deductive reasoning, and inductive reasoning. In total, there are 97 questions on the CJBAT, with 1½ hours (90 minutes) allowed to complete the exam.
