Candidate-Funded POWER Test

Local police departments defer the entire cost of the POWER Test to the candidates.  In so doing, the departments simply direct individuals to NIPSTA and define the timeline by which the test must be successfully completed.  NIPSTA offers the POWER Test numerous times throughout the year allowing candidates the opportunity to meet department’s immediate needs.


Candidates will then be responsible for registering and scheduling themselves for a POWER Test at NIPSTA.


An administration fee of $45 is assessed by NIPSTA to each candidate who registers for the POWER Test.  Upon successful completion of the test, candidates will receive a POWER Test identification card, which may be presented to a police department upon request.  The department may, at its own discretion, independently verify the POWER Test identification card issued by NIPSTA.
