Executive Officer Entrance course

This home study course consists of the following four modules:

Module 1 Self-assessment and suitability

In this module we will assist you in understanding the qualities that the selection panel are looking for and how they are assessed in the competition as a means of selection.

Module 2 General aptitude Tests

It may be sometime since you have attempted an aptitude test or a written examination, so in this module there are a number of general set tests to help get you in the right frame of mind.

This module also provides you with valuable practice for the written test. Like all examinations there are techniques that may be applied to optimise your performance. This module is designed to demonstrate these techniques and assist you to understand and apply them.

Module 3 Sample Tests

This module consists of a sample test so that you can simulate examination conditions at home to practise coping with the real life pressures of time constraints and other factors. This module also consists of a number of examples for each element of the test before you attempt the actual sample test.

A separate booklet is also enclosed giving answers to all questions relating to Modules 2 and 3.

The objectives of this module are to

  • Identify and understand what the selection panel are looking for.
  • Guide and assist you in your preparation for your interview.
