Intake Exam Registration
Note: Applications for the 2022 Reserve Constable program are now closed. However, we accept applications year round for the Reserve Constable program and the selection process will begin again in August for the subsequent year’s training class.
If you meet the requirements, and have not written a Delta Police intake exam in the past six months, register for the next intake exam. Due to the volume of applications received, only applicants being actively considered will be contacted with an email invite to our next Recruit Intake exam. If you have not received an invitation to the Intake exam within 6 months, we have more competitive applicants in our pool at this time. The DPD usually runs seven exams per year in the following months:
February, April, June, August, September (Reserve Constables), October and December
Upcoming date(s) for intake exam(s)
Public Safety Building 11375 84th Ave, Delta, BC
Interested applicants please upload your resume and cover letter by clicking “Register Online Now”.
The ETHOS exam has a three-hour time limit, and most applicants use the allotted time to complete the exam. A score of 60% (60/100) is required to pass, but we would typically like to see a much higher score than 60%. Applicants who fail to pass the ETHOS exam must wait 6 months and then re-register for a second opportunity to write the exam. Each request will be considered on an individual basis. The modules assess the following four areas:
- Memory and observation skills (20 marks)
- Reading, Comprehension and Critical Thinking Skills (25 marks)
- Summarizing skills (10 marks)
- Writing and editing skills (45 marks)
