About the CJBAT

The CJBAT was developed to insure that trainees entering the Florida certified criminal justice training centers possess the requisite abilities to master the curricula and understand the materials that are presented to them in training.

Valencia offers the CJBAT in two criminal justice disciplines: Law Enforcement and Corrections. The CJBAT series of exams were designed to select candidates for admission into law enforcement officer or correctional officer training. Each of the tests includes a measure of the same basic abilities, but they are customized for each criminal justice discipline.

  • The CJBAT will assess your skills in the following areas:
    • Deductive Reasoning - the ability to apply rules to specific problems to come up with logical answers
    • Inductive Reasoning - the ability to combine separate pieces of information, or specific answers to problems to form general rules or conclusions
    • Information Ordering - the ability to correctly follow a rule or set of rules in order to arrange things or actions in a certain order
    • Memorization - the ability to remember information such as words, numbers, pictures and procedures
    • Problem Sensitivity - the ability to tell if something is wrong or likely to go wrong
    • Spatial Orientation - the ability to tell where you are in relation to the location of some objects
    • Written Comprehension - involves reading & understanding written words and sentences
    • Written Expression - ability to write a paragraph using proper grammar and spelling
  • The CJBAT is a timed test - you will have 2 ½ hours to complete it.
  • Passing Scores are as follows:
    • Corrections CJBAT: 70%
    • Law Enforcment CJBAT: 70%
    • NOTE: Starting February 15 2016, per a Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) directive, all numeric score information is to be removed from all law enforcement BAT grade reports. To meet this request, IOS has produced a pass / fail report for both the CJBAT – LEO and CJBAT – CO examinations. Numeric scores will no longer be available on any CJBAT reports. Please contact IOS at 708-410-0200 to speak with one of our representatives for more information, or you may contact the FDLE directly for more information regarding this policy change.
