Public safety tests, including the Firefighter Selection System (consisting of the Firefighter Selection Test, Firefighter Learning Simulation, and Work Orientation Survey for Firefighters) and Police Selection Test, vary slightly from the standard conditions as they are leased not purchased. Conditions that vary are:

  1. Licensee agrees to return used and unused booklets to PSI or to destroy them in a secure manner, furnishing written notification to PSI.
  2. Only the FIREFIGHTER LEARNING SIMULATION Training Manual AND POLICE SELECTION TESTS training manual is used for advance study purpose.
