You must complete your Law Enforcement/Corrections PAT within 90 days of your written exam date. You may choose one of the below options to schedule your PAT.

  1. Schedule at a PST test location: Select a date that PST is hosting a PAT from our "Test & Event Calendar." The majority of these exams will be held in Washington state. PLEASE NOTE: PST only conducts the PAT for LEO & CO candidates testing for WA, ID, and AK. The ORPAT will not be administered by PST and must be scheduled directly with the agency. The fee to schedule with PST is $29.

PLEASE NOTE: Anytime Fitness may only conduct the PAT for LEO & CO candidates testing for WA, ID, and AK.

Is the PAT taken at Anytime Fitness any different than taking it at a PST location?

Yes and no. The events, standards, and requirements are the same regardless of where you take the exam. However, running events completed at an Anytime Fitness location will be conducted on a treadmill, whereas running events completed at a PST location will be conducted on a track or outdoor facility.

It looks like there is an event scheduled near me. Can I sign up for that one?

Each out of state test is prearranged and specific to one candidate. You will not be able to sign up for a date already on the calendar.

What is the deadline I need to take the test on in order to be considered for the next hiring cycle?

You can find each agency’s deadline and more information on the hiring process on our Career Opportunities page. If not, please contact the agency's Human Resources or Civil Service Department.
