Individuals interested in taking the Law Enforcement Alert Test have an opportunity to take the exam at the University of Maine at Fort Kent on Monday, March 19 at 8:30 a.m. in the Grindle Conference Room in Cyr Hall. The test is required prior to attending programs at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy.
The examination consists of two main sections. The first part of the exam contains 60 questions that pertain to reading comprehension. The second part of the exam contains 100 questions dealing with writing skills. Both sections measure important basic abilities. A two hour time limit has been set.
"This fits in with our expansion of criminal justice and public safety outreach efforts at UMFK" said Dr. Tony Enerva, assistant professor of public safety administration & criminal justice.
The cost of the Alert Test is $40.00 and a picture ID must be presented at the time of the examination. Registration deadline is Wednesday, March 14.
"In addition to this screening exam, UMFK will offer the 100-hour Law Enforcement Pre-Service course in May. In less than one year, UMFK has had 41 people who successfully completed the pre-service training offered on campus and through ITV," added Don Eno, coordinator of academic outreach and distance education.
To register or for more information, contact Eno in UMFK's academic outreach office at 207-834-7836 or toll free at 1-888-TRY-UMFK.
