I believe they have to do the PIN test between each constable class ie 4th class cst to 3rd, to 2nd etc.

Someone care to confirm?

No, you do their written test first (their PATI), if you pass you move on to their physical (pretty much PIN test), if you pass that you move onto their 2nd written (their WCT) then you may get an interview. I just wanted to give everyone a head's up so they know what's involved. All of it is on the website if you spend a couple minutes looking.

I like they way they do the PIN test, really weeds out a lot of people who managed to pass the joke, that is the PREP.

I am going to disagree with you on the PREP being a joke, while I agree that it is not the most difficult fitness test ever created, it does its job by weeding out a bunch of people who lack basic fitness. In addition the PIN test has its problems too, for example, I can score around 80% or more in every category except the sit and reach which I fail miserably at. What is the point of the sit and reach test, ability to stretch that far and its correlation to fitness is arguable (Yes I'm bitter towards that portion of the test, its what stops me from getting a great score)

Ok i will agree that the sit and reach, although part of fitness (core components of fitness), is a test that a lot of people will not score well on however the remaining tests are pretty straight forward and getting a top score on the rest should not be that hard. The PIN tests key areas like strength and stamina and although not always needed may definitely be useful at times. Whatever way you look at it you are going to have to do the test at sometime either now or after OPC so why be prepared now so that when you go to OPC you make it easier on yourself!
