In partnership with the Alabama Community College System, the Alabama Peace Officers’ Standards and Training Commission (APOSTC) has adopted the ACT WorkKeys Assessment as the official Basic Ability Test (BAT) for all applicants for Law Enforcement Officer and State Correctional Officer employment and certification. This requirement is effective July 1, 2017.
In addition to possession of a valid high school diploma or General Educational Development (GED) certificate, the BAT is required of all applicants, excepting those applicants who have been previously APOSTC certified and who are required to complete the Refresher training for reinstatement of their Certification, or, those applicants possessing an earned Associates’ Degree of higher Degree from a College or University accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), or its regional equivalent.
Individuals who do not possess a valid ACT WorkKeys Assessment (BAT) may test at any Alabama Community College within the State.
The ACT WorkKeys Assessment is available nationwide. Subject to the employing agency’s approval, out of state applicants may take the ACT WorkKeys Assessment (BAT) in their home state provided proper documentation of a valid test result is submitted to both the employing agency and APOSTC.
For complete information relating to the BAT and ACT WorkKeys Assessment requirements please read the entire text of Chapter Two (2) of the Alabama (APOSTC) Administrative Code, as amended. http://www.apostc.state.al.us/
